#10086 new Bug report

OSX autoupdate fails

Reported by: rcuisnier Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: OS X
Operating system version: OSX 10.9.5



On OSX 10.9.5 Maverciks, Filezilla 3.9 and 3.10 fails to auto upgrade itself.

1- It downloads a package in
2- then extract it
as ~/
3- It fails to replace (maybe because Filezilla is still opened)

I have several other problems with this mecanism :
1- The downloaded path should be :
instead of
Or maybe provide a settings to choose the download path

2- After I tried to manually extract
When I doubleclick on
OSX error said package is broken.

But I can rightclick and then choose explore package in order to find the file.

For now I still upgrade Filezilla manually...

I think the autoupgrade method could be slightly enahanced...

I'm not sure about the main issue, but I can confirm point 1. The autoupdate notification says something like "the file has been placed in your Downloads folder", but it actually places it somewhere else.

I think this is because GetDownloadDir() in interface/file_utils.cpp does not return the proper download directory (~/Downloads) on OS X.

We can use wxStandardPaths::GetUserDir(Dir_Downloads) to replace the GetDownloadDir() function, once we depend on wxWidgets >= 3.1.
