Make the 'connection bar' optional

The 'connection bar' is displayed whenever a connection (FTP or filesystem plugin) has been established. While it provides additional commands it has several downsides:

  • It changes the layout making it uncomfortable to get a fixed layout which is very important for feeling comfortable while using.
  • When there is more than one connection open it's really difficult to see which connection is currently displayed in the 'connection bar'. In addition the bar is displayed in a full line and has no connection to the currently selected connection.
  • In normal use the bar isn't really helpful. It's mainly required for problem analysis

The best would be to hide the 'connection bar' by default and only display it when the user has reenabled it.

So in addition to making the bar optional add the following commands to the connection button context menu:

  • Change transfer mode
  • Display log
