Description (last modified by Tim Kosse)

Filezilla is a very cool file transfer application but
it seems to lack a feature surprisingly trivial: user
profiles.
All users share the same bookmarks that are stored in a
system wide configuration file.
On my home PC there are two users and this is
impractical to find my own bookmark mixed with the
other user's ones, figure it in a more etherogeneous
environment like scools, universitie or offices...
IMHO it should be better and *safer* having them stored
into user's document folder (it can be found, for
example, by inspecting USERPROFILE or HOMEPATH
environment variables), and eventually check for a
common configuration file (for default values or shared
bookmarks) into Filezilla installdir or more
consistently, into the path specified by
ALLUSERPSROFILE environment variable.

Looking at the source I guess that using the registry to
store settings, they are saved on a per user basis.
I still suggest to uniform the xml option to this behavoir.

These days FileZilla stores its settings in the per-user %APPDATA%
