Bug Description

Fresh install of Kubuntu 12.04 (release candidate).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install and open FileZilla (I installed through the package manager)
2. Open the site manager
3. Click "Ok"
4. Window disappears

To get more info on the error, I ran it from the command line:
~$ filezilla
The program 'filezilla' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 34523 error_code 3 request_code 155 minor_code 3)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
~$ filezilla --sync
The program 'filezilla' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 67486 error_code 3 request_code 155 minor_code 3)

I don't know how to further diagnose the problem, but it looks like a missing/broken dependency.

This appear on pressing OK or Cancel Button on Site Manager

Update:
I have switched the GTK Style Appareance from oxygen-gtk to Raleigh ( ihave only this choice ), and now Filezilla DON'T crash on site manager.

Suggested Workaround ( worked for me ):
Install the package oxygen-molecule
Go to Application Appearence -> Gtk Style and select Oxygen-Molecule as gtk style.

Changed in filezilla (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I can confirm that silenx's workaround works for me.

"System Settings" -> "Application Appearance" -> "GTK+ Appearance" -> "Widget style"
pick one of "Raleigh" or "Oxygen-Molecule"

The former looks out-of-place, while the latter requires you to install the package "oxygen-molecule" from the universe repository.

Because filezilla works correctly with two other themes, would the bug be in the "oxygen-gtk" theme (as opposed to in FileZilla itself)?

I suggest this workaround:

For KDE, click with the right button on the KDE Menu Icon and select "Modify applications".

Select the Filezilla icon in the menu editor.

Add: "GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/gtkrc " (with a space at the end) just before "filezilla" into the Command field to have: "GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/gtkrc filezilla"...

Apply.

Click on the Filezilla icon to start filezilla from the KDE menu launcher.

In this way you can keep default gtk theme for all other applications.

For the KDE workaround in #7, make sure you have installed gtk2-engines-qtcurve

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-qtcurve

A better workaround is to use the proposed update of gtk2-oxygen package.

This patched package is available into precise-proposed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

After you have enabled proposed updates, use a package manager like synaptic (sudo apt-get install synaptic) to select ONLY packages gtk2-oxygen and gtk2-oxygen:i386 (you must select the 2 even you use a x86/64 arch) and apply updates.

Restart you system.

On my system Filezilla work fine with the gtk2-oxygen theme.

If this fix works, please, go to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/+source/gtk2-engines-oxygen/+bug/992133 and post a comment to confirm this workaround works.
