Additional report. I tried..

[ Steps ]

  1. Uninstall Filezilla
  2. go to %APPDATA%Filezilla
  3. delete every xml files related with filezilla settings
  4. install Filezilla newest version

[ Current result ]
Same error, Filezilla keeps finding older editor.

[ Status change record ]
According to the several steps, we could think once this happens, it would happen until the user re-install the OS.

This is not a marginal issue, we should deal this as HIGH priority issue.

There must be another declaration when FileZilla opens a editor. Please track the declaration.

### TIPS ###
Tips for users who have same issue.

  1. Go to FileZilla -> Edit -> Settings
  2. File editing -> (Check) Use Custom editor
  3. Set your editor there
  4. Go to Filetype associations
  5. Assign your file extention there manually eg) html "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

php "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

Since I found the alternate use of editor, the priority set to normal again.

But FileZilla developers,
please track and find why the settings does not overwrite the new editor information.
