#10166 new Bug report

Installer always defaults to default directory, ignores user install directory.

The FileZilla installer ignores the user directory preference and always defaults the installation directory to the default directory.

If the program is already installed and to a user defined directory the installer should use the user defined directory by default.

What's your operating system?

Which version were you using before, which version are you trying to install?

I have encountered this issue with Mac OSX version 3.18.0 -- my default downloads directory is ~/<user>/Downloads but the new installer always places itself in ~/<user>/Documents

Is there any place to change this? I could not find any documentation nor related topic in the forum.
