Phantom printing after uploading to Octoprint

i have Octoprint UI loaded in Firefox.
when i drag a file from my computer to the right side of the browser (to upload to the SD card), it uploads and start streaming as if it is printing....

i always have to hit STOP. it will ask if i want to stop and i confirm to stop. finally i have to select the uploaded file to actually start printing. any idea how i should upload my gcode and print without going through hoops?

This is, because uploading to the printer's SD card is like printing: The whole gcode file is sent to the printer line by line.
It is recommended to print from OctoPrint Use the button left to the one you use. It's more convenient and you have way more feature of OctoPrint during print.
