I am using FileZilla 184.108.40.206 on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
When I see a file in the local directory listing I can open that file using right mouse click on that file and select Open or Edit from the menu. This does however not work with .htaccess files. The error message:
The file 'c:\download\temp\.htaccess' could not be opened: No program has been associated on your system with this file type.
But if I doubleclick a .htaccess file in the Windows Explorer, UltraEdit is opened. Also, the .htaccess file has an UltraEdit icon next to it in the FileZilla local file listing.
When I rename the file to 1.htaccess, I can open and edit the file from FileZilla without any problems.
