Is there a way to get FileZilla to ignore case for sorting file and folder names? I want to see all the filenames that start with "D" next to the ones that start with "d."

I'm curious, is there any particular reason you're using FileZilla on OS X and not e.g. Cyberduck? – Daniel Beck Apr 15 '11 at 16:57
@Daniel Beck, yeah, looks much more impressive now than 2 years ago when I tried it last. That may be another way to solve the problem :) – Dan Rosenstark Apr 17 '11 at 4:46
@Randolf Richardson I appreciate the edits to the text, but I changed the title back to title capitalization. Thanks. – Dan Rosenstark Apr 17 '11 at 4:49
@Daniel Beck, the only reason that I can think of is "synchronized browsing" which I use a lot. – Dan Rosenstark Apr 18 '11 at 15:03

There is no option, since this is hard-coded.

It's in the current source code, src/LocalListView.cpp and src/RemoteListView.cpp:

inline int CmpName(const CLocalFileData &data1, const CLocalFileData &data2) const
#ifdef __WXMSW__

FileZilla only sorts case-insensitively on Windows due to __WXMSW__ (wxWidgets Microsoft Windows) being defined there.

You can always download the sources, change these few lines, and recompile yourself.

Wow, thanks SO MUCH @Daniel Beck, I think I'll do that. – Dan Rosenstark Aug 30 '11 at 12:47
