#10857 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Percent encoding appears in FTP session tab label

If the user name for a session includes an @ symbol, e.g. matt@foobar, the FTP session tab is labeled as matt%40foobar@…. The same thing happens in the list for the pulldown to the right of the Quickconnect button. I don't remember this percent-encoding, i.e. %40 = @ being used until what must have been a fairly recent version. I'd prefer to see matt@foobar@… even if that means showing two @ symbols. I'm attaching a partial screenshot of an FTP session tab where domain name is partly blacked out.

This is intentional to avoid displaying ambiguous strings.

In places where username and hostname are displayed together as one entity, some form of escapement is needed to distinguish between the two.
