Client does not prompt for a password

Filezilla Client in Windows XP SP2 does not prompt for a password when I try to connect to an SFTP Server. The problem occurs when you do not fill the password field in the site manager.

In version 2.2.32 there was always a pop up window where you could type your password.

Message log:

Status: Connecting to
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "user@…" 22
Command: Pass:
Error: Authentication failed.
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server

This is by design as an empty passwords can be a valid password (although insecure). Use the Ask or Interactive login type instead.
