I don't believe on most compression fittings there is a difference in the ferrel as far as a right way and wrong way. I say most. Looks to me as you just didn't tighten it down enough. Use pipe dope on the ferrel before you tighten it down, it helps to lubricate between the ferrel and the nut as you tighten.
They will remain inside just as in the image. I do agree with you it shouldn't have made a difference but there was an obvious "top" which snapped into the nut housing. Definitely could be that I didn't tighten it down as well though. No way to know now.

True, just time to move on and hope for better luck next time.

I have found that the more expensive fittings that have the tube insert built in seem to have a ferrule that has a top and bottom. They work very nicely also, but they are expensive!

I have no idea where I left off with this wiring.

This might take a while.

When I get to that stage I usually see a load of stuff I wonder, "What the hell was I thinking"?
