Description

Before I was introduced to your wonderful software, I used the freeware LeechFTP which has a feature I find extremely helpful:

If was viewing a web page, with LeechFTP also running, and the web page had links to pdf files or some other type I wanted to download, simply by copying the link, LeechFTP would capture that link and automatically download the file to whatever directory LeechFTP was set to.

It would be wonderful if this feature could be added to FileZilla.

Thank you.

If you have a proper patch, attach it to this issue and change the type of this issue to "patch".

Thanks for your patch.

Unfortunately this feature completely blocks the GUI during the transfer, how long the operation will last and no possibility to abort it.

I think this functionality would better be suited for a small stand-alone program.
