Updated review Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've truly loved using your add-ons over the years. I don't know what I'll have to do if you stop development and I'm forced to go back to PenguiNet, SecureCRT, FileZilla, or similar. But I don't have to worry about that right now, thankfully! I'm running the Nightly 23a1 (2013-04-18) and I can use FireFTP fine. Servers can be added and connected to. File transfers can be initiated, etc. However, after visiting http://i.imgur.com/5BpUxrG.png you may see the annoying error that's constantly scrolling. Any ideas? Thank you for all of your hard work on FireFTP and FireSSH. These two add-ons are everything I've ever looked for in a client. No one program has ever truly satisfied me, yet your Firefox add-on's go above and beyond and I love them. If we can get this bug squashed, expect a donation your way for the trouble. Oh and as I suggested last year, let’s get a reliable pause button back. It's the only feature missing! On second thought, I've lowered my rating by one star to until a few concerns are addressed. Of course the ones, above such as constant breaking of listTree.js with nightly builds and a pause button. I know it isn't your responsibility to keep up with the nightly builds, but it what is it about listTree.js that likes to break with every update and can it be helped? That brings me to my third suggestion. I see on GitHub you uploaded a revision of listTree.js that includes a fix for Firefox 22, and presumably 23. I'd love to have that version but your developer’s link is incredibly out of date and I would have to build the add-on from scratch, lose auto update ability, etc. How great would it be to add a nightly development channel to your developer’s site where us bleeding edge type of guys can download alpha builds generated daily by a script? That simple addition would address all but the pause button and probably make a lot of people happy. Give it some thought, as it seems to be fairly easy to implement.Edit: Thanks for the response, I see you just uploaded 2.0.14 with the fix for Firefox 22. Although I'm on Firefox 23 (2013-05-08), I'll give it a shot and report back, possibly increasing my rating for FireFTP to 5 stars. Did you ever give any thought to the pause button or nightly developer’s channel? Most largely used add-ons have them and being as you literally own the market with FireFTP and FireSSH, it would be so extremely helpful. Most of the Firefox community has moved to Nightly builds since they are pretty stable and much, much, faster.
Edit #1: It seems the issue was fixed, mostly. After disconnecting from a site, and upon opening the connection manager, I'm presented with this error."Error message= TypeError: props is undefinedURL= chrome://fireftp/content/js/remote/remoteDirTree.jsLine Number= 25"Though only once and not a mass flood, so that's nice. I'm going to go ahead and bump my rating back up. Hopefully you can iron out the kinks completely soon. I feel like I've never had a fully working version of FireFTP, but we're getting there! Thank you Mime for all of your hard work!

that's a known issue with the nightly - it will be fixed soon (such is the dangers of using nightlies :)
I'll consider the request for a nightly build - we shall see! Thanks for the feedback!

A must have addon for any FTP downloading. I see that as of beta version 0.90 FireFTP has had a pause button, yet I can't find it. Am I missing something? I used FileZilla for a long time against my will when multiple connectons were needed. I preferred to use FlashFXP otherwise. Your client gives me the threads I need. It looks and feels better than any standalone client and has replaced both of my paid FTP clients. Is there a nighty or beta branch available? Keep up the great work!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Glad you like it! The pause button was removed a while ago because it wasn't working very reliably. There's a beta available here: http://fireftp.mozdev.org/developers.html
but currently there are no extra features different than the live version.
