    When I try moving around directories, all sorts of problems occur, like the list will be totally empty sometimes. Any ideas?

      Are you using GLUT or freeglut?

        Since you seem to be a new user, I think I'd have to recommend that you avoid using any of the new widgets like filebrowser, list, and textarea. They are definitely full of issues like the ones you are finding. The code for those present a great starting point for someone who wants the feature and isn't afraid to dig in and fix a few bugs or add missing features, but they're not quite ready for mass consumption.

      Good point, although we do still want to hear about the issues
      that you come across, and would especially appreciate bug reports:

      Is there anywhere I can find guildelines for writing a bug report? I searched the forum but didn't find anything. I've never made one before, so I want to make sure I put in the needed information.

      Thanks.

      The Mozilla folks have some good guidelines online:

      In a nutshell, be as clear and detailed as possible.

      I added a bug report. I noticed it was mis-selecting the directory when I clicked .. I figured this might be the cause of the other problems I encountered.
