#3022 closed Bug report

QuickConnect to FTP file tries to CWD into that file

First of all, many thanks for contributing such a good
FTP client!

When I paste a fully qualified FTP file link into the
QuickConnect address field and press enter, nearly
everything works well:
FileZille connects to the server and logs in as anonymous.
But after SYST and PWD, FileZilla tries to CWD into the
file, instead of the directory containing the file.
After that FileZilla should have added the file to the
download queue (and start it immediately, if the queue
was empty).

Can you please re-try with current FileZilla 2 or FileZilla
3 beta?

FileZilla 3 correctly parses the server login information
from the given URI and connects to the server. The quick
connect bar is supposed to connect to servers, not to
directly download files.
