Unexpected Behavior: Unsecured FTP connection dialog box

Reported by: dandawson Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.7
Component: interface Version: 3.6.1
Severity: normal Keywords: FTP, FTP-SSL, SSL, Unsecured, connection
Cc: Architecture:
Platform: Mac OS X 10.6


When attempting to connect to an unsecured FTP connection the user is presented with:

  • Don't show again
  • Continue
  • Change

Pushing "Don't show again" performs the same function as "Change" and modifies my existing bookmarks to an undesired configuration. "Don't show again" should default to leaving the bookmark unchanged, but really the UI is confusing and should be modified.

The "Do you want to switch to FTP-SSL?" would normally be answered with a "Yes" or "No" response. The word "Continue" by itself is ambiguous, except that it is next to a button that says "Change" which you would assume is the same as "Yes, make the change."

Imagine: "Do you want chocolate or vanilla?" Response: "Yes." Which one would you serve them?
