It would also be nice if I could tell FileZilla to (always) immediately delete the file after I close it.

I think this shouldn't be added into options/file-editing tab.
It'd be better to have a tick in a prompt "File has been edited" that says "Upload all changes to this file in this session automatically".
This way it will be safe for everyone, you'll save file once, do typical FileZilla procedure (open the window and click confirm upload) but just in the middle there will be one little tick to disable the prompt for every other edit of this file in this session and upload immediately on save.

I really don't understand why Filezilla developers don't add this simple, common and often required feature to this wonderful program. I read even that it was technical impossible (Ticket #2992,, which is simply wrong, since all other ftp clients have this feature. Simply add a checkbox to allow to the user to be responsable and choose to upload without prompt: why not? At least, follow Grzegorz's suggestion: it's a good compromise, is it?

I support this request too. A very important feature for webdesigners. E.g. WinSCP has this feature with low system load.
