Past versions had a view/edit function in the FTP window when you right clicked on the file (MIME). The exectuted the associated program on the client computer which then could be edited. That was a huge benefit to the program please put it back in.

This was the first thing I searched to configure my editor.
Here ist my vote for this ;-)

Just to avoid that even more people "vote for this one" as well, I repeat the line which shows up in the RFE tracker overview: "Please do not add comments like "I want this feature, too" or something similar to any requests."

Another vote for this, I like Filezilla, but lack of this function is a dealbreaker.

untill this is implemented in the V3 I will continu to use V2.
because this is a function I constantly use.

I've come up with a temporary fix that works for me. The feature request list looks really long, and I didn't want to wait!
My filezilla mod allows you to manually modify your settings file (filezilla.xml) to change the double-click behavior from 'Upload File' to 'Launch Some Application' (supposing it works at all). I've posted a binary compiled on my Ubuntu 7.04 system, along with the modified source files, at http://www.overtheturnstile.com/fz/double-click-launch.tar.gz
There's a readme included with some instructions and explanations. No guarantees, of course.
I am not very experienced, or I'd have attempted to contribute something that mightn't have to be rewritten, but this is it for now. I'm also totally new to SourceForge, so I hope I'm not doing anything wrong by posting this link... I just hope it helps somebody.

View/edit functionality is an essential tool for my ability to swiftly update web pages. I don't really understand why this feature was removed, it certainly can't be considered fluff since it eliminates four to five steps in an update procedure. Did this tool somehow pose a security threat? Ver2.2.32 will remain my FTP client presently.

I'm afriad that until this fairy simple yet extremeley useful feature is re-enabled I will conttinue to use version 2. Please guys, this can't be too hard to implement and isn't really a feature request as such as it was already there in the old version.

I was hoping to use Filezilla instead of cute but there is something I really need:
View/Edit files on the same ftp window (only text format of couse) and be able to save to remote folder right away.
Cuteftp have this and its great.
I am cool with a 3rd party opening the file but then I when saving it doesn't save to remote folder.
This little detail stops me from using filezilla

This feature has been implemented. Please update to the most
recent version of FileZilla.
I take this goes for FileZilla 3.
