I've noticed that dialogue boxes in FileZilla behaves non-standardly on Windows. Standard Windows dialogue boxes can be copied in plaintext by pressing ctrl+c with the box in focus. Doing this on a FileZilla dialogue does not copy the text.

Specifically, I attempted to do this on the verify SSH fingerprint dialogue. It looks like this (Just a Googled image - to illustrate the component I'm referring to).

Expected behaviour is that I can then paste the plaintext content of the dialogue into notepad, after which I can compare the fingerprint with one that I've been provided with before hand.

Actual behaviour is that it does not copy, meaning I have to manually read the fingerprint and compare it manually - leaves room for error.

The request is that dialogue boxes should behave standardly so that their contents may be copied.

Alternatively, the SSH fingerprint should be displayed in a non-editable text-box that can be copied in order to facilitate fingerprint verification.

My system: Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64, FZ 3.8.0
