Yellow area: this icon makes me sick since 1.74 version
Green area: nothing happens when I click on these arrows
Red area: main bug, there must be some folders as you see it in the tree view but nothing is shown (these folders have custom icons)

Using Windows XP SP2 Russian

The "Green area" bug, I've been getting that ever since I started using XnView from the very beginning. It's a very minor GUI bug nothing to be worried about. It only occurs with me in View mode.
Windows 10 Pro x64 1909
XnViewMP and Classic and PhotoFiltre Studio X

Red area: I had the same problem in my file manager, try to enable "Show hidden files" under Options > Browser > File List.

Green area: Same as ckit

Yellow area: I don't think it's a bug | edit: but I don't like it too

ok, it shows these folders but at the same time you see all that rubbish in the root directory of your hard drive

Yellow: I have no idea why it makes you sick, but if you come up with a better icon then Pierre might use it =)
Green:Reduce window's width until the toolbar is cut, then clicking >> will expand it.
Red: I can't reproduce. Folders with custom icon are displayed for me, whith the default icon though.

Erratum. No I see *some* custom folders not being displayed.

I haven't seen icons in the menu bar since windows 3.1. You wont find a modern program that has an icon there - it is an atavism. By the way, which function has it?

The ">>" symbol should appear on the toolbar only when window's width is cut enough to hide the icons on it. I've just looked at the XnView Deluxe 2 - there is no such bug.

the "green area" bug shows up when you have the toolbar button for the "about" window set not to show. if you guys set it to be shown, the chevron goes away. this is definitely a bug, though.

A new e-mail containing login info will be sent to you, then. If you can't remember (or find in the memberlist) your username your in trouble. I can search the userlist using admin search, if needed.
Done :D

An example of folders not showing up is Ms Frontpage web sites:

However, folders of which I have manually changed the icon (right-click>properties>customize) show up with the default icon:

what about custom folders not showing up in browser? it's more important than a menubar icon imo :?

Some (or all) folders with custom icons are not displayed in the browser (with other folders) until "Show hidden files" option is enabled.

That folders have System attribute and this is the reason I think, but they are displayed in explorer even if "Do not show hidden files and folders" option is enabled, so it's little bit strange...
