When I open the above address by starting at the top of the ftp.mozilla.org tree and opening the directories there is a dreadful performance problem when opening the nightly directory. It takes 15 second to list the directory. During this time the mouse will hardly move on the screen. Mozilla seems really to hammer the X server at this moment. Gecko/20001105 build, downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org

I'm not seeing any severe performance problems doing an ftp listing on a current build. Can you try to reproduce on a more recent nightly? Also, what CPU speed and RAM do you have?
I ran on Gecko/20010111, Linux Running under Suse/x86 I tried two machines: stubbs: Bi-processor pentium II, 450Mhz, 256M ram, Matrix G400, Xfree3.3.6 holbein: Monoprocessor Pentium III, 800 Mhz, 256 ram, NVidia GeForce, Xfree4. Both machines have performance problems with ftp listings (I am using modern skin) To factor out the network speed I tried listing a local mirror of redhat7 rpms. Stubbs: It takes about 20 seconds to list all the files, the X pointer is very slow to react during this time as per report. Holbein: The X pointer remains fluid. However the directory listing takes 50 seconds. As a reference netscape 4.7 finishes in about 3 seconds.

So I tried this in a build and I didn't have any problems with it. Looked fine here.
I don't think we're going to get anywhere on this bug specifically; dougt's ftp changes and changing the directory viewer to use <outliner> will probably help ftp performance though. Setting moz1.0, unless someone wants to mark this FIXED.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9 → mozilla1.0
Is this still happening?
I haven't seen anything like this in a long long time. ftp is working pretty well these days.
Well the default FTP display has been changed since the report. FTP just gives a plain view of files, rather than a tree view, which was killing all performance I am marking as fixed.
