I found that Filezilla prompts me to reenter the password when I download a file. This seems only seems to occur when "Do Not Save Password" is checked, and I start Filezilla from the command line.
This seems to be similar to this issue, except that it triggers from the command line: https://forum.filezilla-project.org/viewtopic.php?t=36185
I searched for a corresponding bug report, but I couldn't find it.
Here is my procedure:
- Open Filezilla and enable "Do Not Save Password" (Edit->Settings, Interface)
- Close Filezilla
- Open a connection to a host from the command line. The syntax I use is: %path-to-application% sftp://%username%:%password%@%server%:%port%
- Right-click on a file on the target host, and select Download. The file is downloaded without a password prompt
- Download the same file by dragging the file from the right window to the left. Filezilla promts the user for a password.
I am using Filezilla 184.108.40.206, on Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1), 64-bit edition
I tried to enable debugging, but I did not find any useful output.
