Default Bad-Formed queue list

After downloading a big list of small files from an FTP in my LAN i pressed stop.

You see the result: a few empty lines at the top of the queue list.

What specific build of FlashFXP are you using?

What version of Windows is this? and does it have all system updates installed?

I posted build v4.2.5 build 1801 [beta] to liveupdate last night and I am fairly certain that the changes made since 1784 will resolve this issue.

In v4.2 I introduced a new method of updating the queue list to help eliminate a UI drawing bottleneck when updating the list content. In house testing of the new method along with beta tester feedback lead me to believe it was working without any side effects. However real word feedback from users has told me otherwise and that the new method has several drawing glitches, such as failing to repaint or update the item list correctly.

Back in build 1796 I dropped the new code in favor of a new hybrid method using the pre v4.2 code with some improvements.

Upgrading to build 1801 should eliminate problems such as this.

Yes, when downloading small files in a high speed environment it was really awful
I will try new version and send u feedback.

Also, I would like to mention an other problem I faced...
When I download to a USB 2.0 disk (4mb/sec) speed, the file is being cached by FlashFXP. The disk is facing a non-working period of half a minute and then a file of 20mb is being saved to disk instantly (with a delay).

I think is better to have an option to reduce the cached size and span the writing process better in time. Or even an option to disable that! Some people don't like it!

Do you have live update configured to check for beta releases?

Options > Preferences > Live Update > Release Type > Beta and Stable

List behavior is much better.

However refreshing a huge list still looks very odd :-)

Could you please provide a screenshot of how it looks odd?

When the list is huge, there is a delay removing items.

Selecting an item always while the list is continuously moving(=updating) is tough and strange.
Probably when an item is selected, it should change behavior.

This was my original intent when changes were made several builds ago but unfortunately trying to change the behavior is leading to erratic and unpredictable results. What works fine some users isn't working for others.

Some concepts when designing UI are common acceptable by all users.

When a list is updating (changing size) then you should be able in an easy and predictable way to move or delete items. Now you cant do this....

Also download speed inst updated correctly when downloading small files (is always stuck to zero)
