If you use gksudo you will get feedback as you type your password. Hiding the inputting of passwords is great for security as it hides the length.

If you want to change font face and size:

If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 you can enable tree view under the view menu at the top.

I suggest installing krusader (= file manager GUI) which is an Ubuntu package that is available in the default Ubuntu repositories.

I also suggest reading these guides:

Can you help with this problem?
