FileZilla can't be opened

Reported by: Stan Hendryx Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: FileZilla.app can't be opened Cc: Stan Hendryx
Component version: 3.56 Operating system type: OS X
Operating system version: MacOS 10.15.7

Description

Trying to update FileZilla from 3.46.3 to 3.56 on MacOS 10.15.7. Downloaded installer FileZilla_3.56.0_macosx-x86.app.tar.bz2. Unpacked it using WinZip, in Downloads folder. Double-clicking on the FileZilla.app icon gets this message: The application “FileZilla.app” can’t be opened. Version 3.46.3 works fine.
I tried renaming ~/.config/filezilla (rather than deleting it), but it did not help. I checked, but did not find a ticket about this problem. Advice? Thank you,
Stan Hendryx, stanhx@…

Don't use third-party tools to extract the archive, they are damaging the contents. On macOS only use macOS' native built-in tools to extract archives.
