Right now, it's nice that you can put FTP URLs in the quickconnect bar, but the functionality isn't quite usable.
For example, if you copy
from your browser and you want to download it in filezilla. When you paste it in the quick connect "host" field, you get the following error:
Connecting to 188.8.131.52:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220-Microsoft FTP Service
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: CWD /planificacion/VAD&Hepp/Metodo-participativo-VAD.pdf
Response: 550 /planificacion/VAD&Hepp/Metodo-participativo-VAD.pdf: The directory name is invalid.
Response: 257 "/" is current directory.
Ideally, it would CDW TO /planificacion/VAD&Hepp/
then start a download of Metodo-participativo-VAD.pdf

It is not useful for URL without file on the end of link. I only want connect to somewhere.
ideas is taken from #7961.

|Summary:||FTP URL in Quickconnect does not initiate download → FTP URL in Quick Connect should open directory/download file|
|Type:||Bug report → Feature request|
So I try to translate your feature request:
1) An FTP URI pasted into the quick connect bar should open a connection to the given FTP server and browse to the given directory in case the given URI refers to a directory.
2) In case the pasted FTP URI is not a directory but a file, a download should be started, or the manual download dialogue should be opened with all known information already filled in (probably just missing the local directory where the file should be downloaded to).

in both cases local directory should be opened in default local directory.
Second case should start download of file and keep open connection to remote directory as in first case.
The quick connect bar is not supposed to be used like that. Please try the manual transfer (Transfer -> Manual download). Does it work there?
