FileZilla fails to save settings on Windows 11 if Notepad is uninstalled

If Notepad is uninstalled, FileZilla fails to save settings as formats may become messed up and displays this error.


Associated program not found: C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe

If you remove the first few lines, it will display errors as for some reason, format is incorrect in many of those filetypes (never touched this window)

Solving is easy as you just remove misspelled settings and add quotes, but it's weird that FileZilla even created such associations in the first place.

Settings validation is intentional and desired.
