#11066 new Feature request

Clarify "Saving of passwords has been disabled" dialog box.

Reported by: Julian Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: 3.22.2.2 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 10

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  • Fresh install of Filezilla.
  • Open Site Manager
  • Enter details for new site.
  • For Logon Type select "Normal"
  • Click Ok

A dialog box comes up that is titled "Site Manager - Cannot remember password"

Saving of passwords has been disabled by you.
'Normal' and 'Account' logontypes are not available. Your entry has been changed to 'Ask for password'.

Please make the following clarifications on this dialog box text.

  • The title should be 'Cannot save password'. The current title suggests the user can't remember the password, which is not the case.
  • The first line should read 'Saving of passwords has been disabled in the Interface settings.' Please don't blame me for disabling it. I didn't do it!
  • There should be an additional line explaining where in the settings this can be changed, because it is quite obscure: Edit... menu | Settings... menu item | Behaviour Pane | Do not save passwords checkbox.

This setting is not enabled by default, only a user action enables not remembering passwords.

If that is what is supposed to happen, then please add to this bug report that that doesn't happen! This bug report was raised when I installed FileZilla on a brand-new Windows 10 machine.
