#12962 closed Bug report (rejected)

'Check for FileZilla updates Automatically' option is not being respected by program.

Hi team,

I have my version to not to check for updates, and yet everytime I start up FileZilla it tells me there is an update available.

I'm running FileZilla 3.62.2

We run it on computers that need admin access to update and so it's just an extra step each day to remove the pop up prompt.

I looked first, but hopefully this isn't a duplicate ticket.

Resolution: rejected
Status: newclosed

No check has been performed, just as configured. It's purely based on elapsed time. It is a gentle reminder to tell you to check for updates yourself and to update manually.

Thanks Tim. While I understand the thinking behind this, on computers locked down or unable to update, this creates a barrier to good UX. Just saying.
