Do you mean that the popup doesn't appear or what ?

Maybe your left panes is configured to use the "Long file list"
view. If you want to see the contents on both panels simultaniously
you can do the following:

1) Press F9 to go to the menu

2) Expand the "Left" menu and select "Listing mode"

3) Select the "Full file list" mode

The connection is closed automatically when it expires - the
default timeout is 900 sec and can be configured by changing the
the value of "fish_directory_timeout" option in your ~/.mc/ini

How do you log in into that linux box ? Remote login or local
login ? What is the value of the environment variable "TERM" ?
