  1. When I browse the blobs under one container, I have prev/next buttons. If I have lots of blobs, page by page flipping is time consuming. Can you add a "goto page" button?
  2. After I rename one blob, looks like I was reset to the first page. Can it stay on the original page or go to the page that has the new name? Both make sense to me.
One more :)
After I delete one blob, it also reset to the page 1. This is inconvenient if I want to delete multiple blobs. can it stay on the original page?

Related to this, I'd prefer to simply not have the paging at all. I've just switched to the preview version from version 4 (I think) and the paging is, for me, a massive step backwards in usability. For the tasks for which I use the app, it's much less efficient.

My typical workflow, when I've got a blob to replace with new data:
  1. Find the existing blob in my (long) list
  2. Click rename to copy its name to the clipboard
  3. Upload my new data file (which will initially have a different name)
  4. Wait for upload to complete
  5. Find and select my newly-uploaded data
  6. Click Rename and paste in the name of the existing blob I want it to replace
The 'find' steps above are a lot more painful with the Preview version. Am I missing a useful shortcut?
