Default Disabling open local location of file when uploading

One thing that I don't particullarly like in FlashFXP is when it opens the local directory of the current file upload.


Uploading three files all in different directories:


When it uploads somefile.ext, the local browser with switch to c:\dir1\, when it uploads anotherfile.ext, it will switch to c:\dir2\ and so on...

Can you implement an option to disable this?

Currently, when transferring files, it is assumed that the user sit back and watch, and has no need to touch anything. FlashFXP is an extremely object oriented program, and actually extracts data from visual components such as the Local Directory listing. If FlashFXP were to not display the file listing, it simply wouldn't know what files to transfer from it, etc.

This will all have to change WHEN FlashFXP allows browsing offline directory listing cache while disconnected / during a transfer. Though currently, it is very unlikely.

Besides, is it really necessary to add an option like this? Couldn't you just use Windows Explorer to browse other folders? You CAN drag-drop files from Explorer into FlashFXP, btw.

I'm afraid this isn't possible. when files are queued for upload they come from the local display, FlashFXP must be able to navigate to these folders to queue them.
