Summary: connect or download from URLdownload from URL using Quick Connect Bar entered into the host field of the Quick Connection Bar connects to the given server and automatically changes into the given directory. That already works.

The download part does not yet work. There is a custom transfer dialogue "Transfer -> Manual Transfer…" which can be used instead.

Easier would be to simply enter the URI into the host field and then download the file into the currently selected local directory. Upload won't work that way.

A detection whether the given URI exists and is a file or directory could work as outlined in this Stack Overflow answer.
