Hello michael.royce, see : http://en.flossmanuals.net/firefox/ch028_fireftp/


thank you

Question owner

I can upload files fine BUT I can not seem to add a sub folder and its files OR I can not create a sub folder on my Web site (1&1.com).

I did complete the task with FTP FileZilla so I know it is not a 1&1 problem.

I needed another FTP program because FileZilla does not work well with Windows8 PRO (FileZilla times out after uploading 8MB or so).
