Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

I just tried the 5-12-2020 nightly build, but no change. Double-clicking or selecting Edit for a local file causes it to open in Windows Notepad, even though selecting "Open" for a local file opens the file in my assigned editor app for this file type in Windows. FZ still shows the correct...

Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

The system associations are obtained straight through Windows' official AssocQueryString function. If no system association is shown, either Windows itself is confused (there are for historic reasons so many different places to set associations, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Explorer would do i...

Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

I installed the latest nightly build from 5/7/2020, but when I try to edit a Perl program file it pops up a dialog saying "no program has been associated to edit files with the extensions 'pl'. There is an option to "use system association" but it shows the default editor for this fil...

Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

I've reverted to v3.47 and the associations work properly again (according to system-associated app) without any overrides necessary in the FZ association list. But now every time I launch FZ, it pops up the dialog about a new version available. Is there some way to disable this notification. I sele...

Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

My problem is unrelated to the file type association list mentioned by th4n4t0s, as I had no entries in this list and it previously used my default editor when opening files, but no longer does after the update. I don't believe the file type association list had any effect on my particular experienc...

Re: Filezilla Client 3.48.0 - Use System Association for opening file

I also installed 3.48.0 today as prompted, but now when I double-click a Perl program file in the local pane, it opens the file in Windows Notepad whereas it had always previously opened it in my Perl Editor. Oddly, FZ correctly shows the Perl Editor application icon for these entries in the local p...

Delay after downloading several small files

I noticed today when downloading 76 small files (all less than 7 KB, most are 1 KB) from an account on my server that the transfer process starts off pretty fast with the files scrolling by pretty quickly as they are downloaded with no delay between files. But after about after about 50 files or so ...

Re: Export Import Settings not working

FYI: I found this info online: http://www.urtech.ca/2016/04/solved-how-to-migrate-filezilla-settings-from-one-pc-to-another/ When I try method 1 (as described in my initial post), it doesn't copy settings, just sites, even though I select settings to be exported and imported. But when I use method 2...

Export Import Settings not working

Hi, I installed the same FileZilla (current version as of today) on my desktop and laptop. I want to move my desktop settings to my laptop copy. I use export on desktop to create XML file and then use import on laptop to import it. But the settings on the laptop are unchanged even after restarting. ...

Re: File association not working

Thanks - changing that setting seems to have worked for FZ. Strange that Windows Explorer and the Desktop take their app associations from some place else. You'd think there'd only be one "default application for opening this type of document" setting for each doctype in Windows! ;-)

Re: File association not working

I'm not sure where to view the true "open" verb setting. In Control Panel -> Default Programs -> Set Associations, .DOC is set to OpenOffice.org Writer. In RegEdit under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc, there are the following entries: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc] @="doc_auto_file" "Cont...

File association not working

I am running FZ version 3.3.3 under Win 7. In Windows Explorer, double-clicking a DOC file opens it in OpenOffice Writer. In FZ, right-click View/Edit opens the file in WordPad. I went into a CMD window and modified the .DOC association by typing: assoc .doc=opendocument.WriterDocument.1 (the same a...
