It doesn't matter if the it tries the anonymous account or using a named account (i.e. ftp://username@password:ftp.site.com/ Firfox only sends these commands: USER anonymous PASS email@example.com SYST PWD TYPE I PASV SIZE / Then it reports "The connection was reset The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." After Firefox sends the "SIZE /" command (which doesn't make any sense...) it hangs up. The software should be able to determine the difference between a file and a directory. The server does send back UNIX file permissions that does indicate whether or not an item is a directory or not. Other browsers (Internet Explorer and older versions of Netscape) successfully log in by sending these commands: USER anonymous PASS IEUser@my.net SYST PWD PASV TYPE I SIZE / MDTM / CWD / LIST The "LIST" command makes sense as it returns a list of files and directories. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In Firefox, Go to ftp://ftp.price-net.net/ 2. 3. Actual Results: Here's a screen capture of the results. http://www.price-net.net/firefox_ftp/error.gif Expected Results: Produce a listing of files and directories as in this screen capture (Netscape 4.79): http://www.price-net.net/firefox_ftp/success.gif FTP Server software is Serv-U 22.214.171.124 Corporate Edition Running on Win XP Pro SP2 dual Opteron server via cable modem Been running FTP servers since 1998 with no problems...transfer ~3GB daily

WFM - though the ftp server is a bit slow to return any data. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060106 Firefox/1.6a1
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 WFM as well (though the server is slow to respond).
The only reason is it acts slow is that I only have a 512kbps pipe and the server stays fairly busy. If people are able to receive a directory listing using Firefox, then why do I get complaints from other Firefox users? My primary issue with it was with the commands it sends (or doesn't send) to the server.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with Firefox 2.0? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
Seems that this issue was resolved with the 2.x series.
