Is there a way to view ftp site password?
When i export ftp sites list in xml, i can't see real
passwords , but why can't they be like normal passwords?

Passwords are stored encrypted to protect people from
getting their passwords stolen.

Perhaps you would like a "clear text passwords" option?
Though I doubt anyone would take the time to do this,
sometime syou just have to push users into good security

You can use Visual C++, or Resource Hacker, to edit the
dialogs and turn off the "password" style bit on the
password edit boxes. I've done that, and posted the modified
executables here:

FileZilla 3 (beta), the next major version of FileZilla Client, stores the passwords in clear text. It is up to the user to properly protect the configuration file(s). Microsoft Windows offers the possibility to encrypt files transparently, and on Unix there are encrypted file systems. So this all is up to the user's choice if they need their passwords encrypted or not.

Clsoing this feature request.
