is anyone having problems with FireFTP?

when I log into my server using Fire FTP everything is fine. I navigate to the directory that I need with no problem. But as I back out of the path the folder icons change appearance to a link icon and the directories become effectively locked. I am unable to enter them again. I have checked with my host and it is not on their end and I have used a stand alone FTP client and the problem does not exist on that. I have this same issue on two separate computers running Fire FTP

Re: is anyone having problems with FireFTP?

Hi spazlabz,

FireFTP is a third-party add-on that isn't developed by Mozilla. I checked out their add-ons page and they list this as their support site: http://fireftp.mozdev.org/help.html

Unfortunately it looks like it's down at the moment, so I can't verify what type of support they provide -- but your best bet is to try that page later today or tomorrow and see if you can get help there directly.

Of course, your problem could also be related to the FTP server you're connecting to -- it's hard to tell for me without actually being able to log in myself.

It was working fine until last week. Can somebody please advise how I can fixed this?
