#128 closed Bug report

Default local dir on first connection

Reported by: starless Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I have FileZilla 1.9.7 configured to open the file manager
window on startup; if I connect to a site - which has a
local directory setting - immediately after opening
FileZilla, e.g. by double-clicking on its name, the actual
local directory in the left pane is the latest one I've used,
and NOT the one which is instead in the settings for that
FTP site.

Try this:

  • set up site with default local directory


  • set FileZilla so that the site manager is open on


  • connect to the site, and browse in the left local pane to

a C:\whatever folder;

  • close FileZilla, then reopen it;
  • connect to again;
  • you will see that the local directory is C:\whatever,

instead of C:\abc, which it should be;

  • disconnect from the site, then reconnect again;
  • you will now see the right local dir.
