ftp:// url output should have sortability (by date and name)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 The IE browser knows how to present the current-directory listing of an FTP:// website with SORTABLE column-headers for DATE (and NAME). So, I'm suggesting as an enhancement, that you implement this feature. (At a minimum, DATE sortability and NAME sortability would be a great start.) As an aside...I am UN-IMPRESSED that there has not been an update for 1.o Firefox. I read about known security problems that sound important. I use Firefox on both Linux and Win-XP. I also UPDATED some info on a known FTP-DATE bug, which was originally reported WAY BACK in Aug-2004. (The exact description is that the YEAR portion of the date is incorrect.) That bug has remained in UNCO (unconfirmed state), even after myself and others updated bugzilla reports, naming SPECIFIC FTP-websites that clearly exhibited the bug! If you can NOT even move that bug's status from unconfirmed to 'reproduced' in this amount of time, it does NOT SPEAK WELL for your ability to keep this product up-to-date and competitive.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Your (automated?) thing said: >This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that >bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are >highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. But, OF COURSE, this bug wasn't confirmed by another user. That's because it is a SUGGESTION that logic be ADDED to conform with what all other browsers implement (rather than a bug in existing logic). What else can I say! Just because no one else makes the same SUGGESTION does NOT mean that it ought not be corrected/enhanced to conform. Is conformance NOT a goal for this browser???
This seems to be fixed by Core bug 294800.
