On a clean install of Mavericks, where the 'Allow apps downloaded from' setting has been left in its default state of 'Mac App Store and identified developers' Filezilla fails to run, with the console output ...
30/12/2013 11:50:04.037 CoreServicesUIAgent: Saving rejection record: Rejected URL=file:///Applications/FileZilla.app/ App URL=file:///Applications/FileZilla.app/ 30/12/2013 11:50:04.040 com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0x10e10e].de.filezilla) Exited: Killed: 9
As I understand it this is the OS killing the Filezilla process due to the default security settings. If the OsX setting is altered to 'Anywhere' Filezilla runs up as expected.
The 'Bug' I wanted to report is that for some reason, I assume due to the way the application runs up; there is no display to state why the application didn't run, it just silently fails to start. Other applications trigger an OS pop up stating that the application can't be run due to the current settings, and appear in 'System Preferences >> Security & privacy >> General' with the option to allow them anyway.
