I am web developer, using Ubuntu 13.04. I frequently need to upload files from different directories to FTP.

How can I drag and drop upload files to the Filezilla icon in the Unity launcher?

I know I can semi-maximize the Nautilus window, and then drag and drop files into the Filezilla window behind it, but when there are lots of files in a directory I sometimes have to scroll down a long way in Nautilus to get to the file that I want to upload.

Is there a way when I drag a file on Filezilla, that the current window will open automatically, and then I can drop the file into a remote directory opened in a Filezilla window?
