To put this angry bug report in context, let me first of all, thank you gentlemen for making free software for me!
Opening filezilla today I was asked to upgrade to the newest filezilla. I am not sure it gave me the possibility of choosing not to upgrade, but probably it did. It should please do so more prominently.
Nevertheless, I would maybe have chosen to upgrade even if I could choose not to. Upgrading caused the following disadvantages to me that together add up to so much inconvenience that I would greatly have preferred not to upgrade.
- I had to reboot to uninstall the old filezilla.
- After reinstalling, all my hosts in my list (notably including their passwords) have been deleted. I am sure I can find most of them again, but it will be really cumbersome.
- to add insult to injury, the new filezilla starts out by throwing a message box in my face asking me to report bugs! Yes, now I damn well will. That message made me feel like you feel at liberty to test your buggy upgrades on me! You could have asked me whether I felt like taking a risk!
I do not know what improvements are in the newest filezilla, but I was quite happy with the old version I have, so I venture to guess that I would have been happier without your latest "improvements" to filezilla.
