I'm using FileZilla since Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - here it was 3.5.3.
Now I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - it has 22.214.171.124.
Steps to reproduce:
- Install FTP server which support both connections types - plain FTP and FTPES.
- Try to connect in both modes from FileZilla:
2.a. write ftp://server in Host field to connect with plain insecure FTP in QuickConnect toolbar
2.b. write ftpes://server in Host field to connect with explicit FTP over TLS in QuickConnect
- Previous version (3.5.3 in my case) reacts on user input as expected. It connects as FTP when FTP was requested (ftp://server in Host field) and as FTPES when FTPES was requested (ftpes://server in Host field).
- Modern FileZilla uses TLS even if user requested plain FTP in QuickConnect field.
I understand that you care about user privacy, but please make FileZilla respect user configuration.
User may want to use plain FTP from QuickConnect bar, not from SiteManager.
