Address bar for FTP/SFTP/FTPES links

Description

I often want to connect to an FTPES service, and FileZilla is proving cumbersome to do so--QuickConnect seems to default to FTP (unsecured), and the standard FileZilla interface for creating new, remembered connections has many fields to enter one at a time. Wouldn't it be great if users could just paste in FTP/SFTP/FTPES links into a sort of address bar, as we do all the time in Web browsers?

Just use the proper protocol there.

Valid protocols are:
ftp:// for normal FTP,
sftp:// for SSH file transfer protocol,
ftps:// for FTP over SSL (implicit) and
ftpes:// for FTP over SSL (explicit).

And I have to disappoint you, that even in web browsers, this does not work. Try to browse to the HTTPS version of example.com without explicitly stating the scheme. No luck.
