TO REPRODUCE:
Use Mozilla to go to ftp://ftp.netscape.com and navigate your way down to the 
directory for 4.72. Click on the twisty to list the contents of that 
directory.

WHAT HAPPENS:
Mozilla will display the spinning twisty forever. You can't stop it because the 
stop button is not enabled during FTP operations (bug 20011).

EXPECTED:
It should throw an error since there is no anonymous permission for this dir.

Jud, is this some kind of Necko weirdness?

I am not able to reproduce the infinate twisty. if we hit a dir that we can't
LS, we display an empty dir. We do need to handle permission issues. dialog
throwing is probably the answer. I'm moving this to a feature request.

See bug 37367. For what it's worth, i don't like this one tagged as RFE.
Error-handling routines and user feedback is pretty basic stuff, as valeski
writes. 

A shared popup could be used for cases where moz don't find a dir, file or
read-access. But it definately needs to conclude such an error is found and
alert user. The sooner the better ;) Fingertrouble is common and "forever
spinning things" a nuisance: User has no idea whether it's a slow connection or
moz is off to Neverneverland.

I dont think that this is really an RFE either.

This works for me with today's build.  Making as such.  If this still does not
work for you, please reopen.
