The FTP is unusable in Mozilla, must be nsbeta3+. Plaese take some attention on
this major problem!!!

For example go to:

1. ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/ - no directory listing.
2. ftp://ftp.danadata.dk/ - nothing shown.
3. ftp://ftp.infonet.ee/pub/software/windows/ - not all dirs are listed (only
first 2)
4. ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/ - not all dirs are listed (only
first 2)

Need more?

Additionally these two FTPs has the same problem.

1) ftp://ftp.asuscom.de/pub/ASUSCOM/ is only displaying the first two (2)
folders and no "Up to higher level directory"

2) ftp://ftp.asuscom.de/pub/ASUSCOM/BIOS is showing nothing.

Marking it so will not get anybody looking at the problem, unless you mean to
fix the bug yourself, in which cased you should have reassigned it.  There are
too many types of FTP listings for us to be able to support them all in this
release, but the mozill.org problem is embarassing, as I can confirm in
yesterday's N6 trunk verification build on Win98.  Clearing status whiteboard.
Gagan, could you commment on this nomination?

I agree with Peter's assessment and considering the limited number of bugs we
can fix this will have to be a minus for both the nominations. Also ->rjc for
the right bucket

Two more questions: Would you take outside help on this (i.e, add HelpWanted
keywrod)?  Has anyone had problems on ftp.netscape.com?  That would probably
raise the priority.

How can I help? I'm not a programmer, but I can post some debug. Just say what 
and how.

I see this bug very long (with new HDD, new profiles, win98se, win2000). Also is 
an ftp issue the absence of Last Modifyed (bug 30994).

I'm seeing that on every FTP page I'm visiting (win32 2000-01-05-04 trunk): Only
2 entries (diectories/files) per directory are shown.
Taht means, e.g. at ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/nightly/ I get the first 2
entries, if I click the twisty on one of those 2 directories, the first 2
entries of that subdirectory are shown (and so on, if you have another dir in
If that also happens in branch builds, NS6 FTP support would be unuseable for a
big number of people...
BTW, is this also happening on other platforms than win32?
