    Are you seeing this bug: http://trac.filezilla-project.org/ticket/9308

    If so can you help contribute to it. If anything, by simply commenting that you have it as well. It is VERY annoying to have case factor into sorting like this. This does not happen on Windows.

    Ehhhh... I'm pretty sure that's the normal sort order done by Linux/BSD/etc (and OSx by extension).
    It may be "annoying" but it follows the normal Linux format. Maybe they need to include an option to disregard it.

    But OSx itself doesn't even sort like this.

    I'm not talking about the command line, obviously. I am talking about Finder and GUI OSx which is what Filezilla is.

    This makes sense:

    When I look at that same directory in FileZilla its all screwed up and screws with me finding things fast.

    FileZilla's Mac port always felt.. unpolished at best. It definitely works though and I'm sure it makes it easy for people who use Windows too.

    If you're willing to give something else a go I highly recommend Cyberduck. It sorts things the way you want, and is/feels a lot more native. I've heard people mention they like the side by side tree in FileZilla but you can open multiple connections in Cyberduck, including one to localhost to accomplish the same thing.

    I've given a few things a try over the years and always find myself coming back to FileZilla. This is literally the only thing that annoys me about it. Everything else is fantastic. I do love the side by side tree as well.

    I might give that a go just to see how I like it though.

    and its things like these that make me wish I'd stayed in College and went after a Computer Science degree. I want to fix this so badly lol

    @BamaStangGuy, it looks like they are using the default ls for the directory listings. I haven't played with FileZilla on the Mac (don't trust it as far as I could fart it) and have used CyberDuck and now paid for Transmit. Much better.
