#9746 closed defect (fixed)

Repeated prompt for identity. Client certificate selection not persisted

I connect to a specific WebDAV (https) server to upload/download files. I am using OSX.This server requires acceptance of an SSL certificate. Upon first connecting to the server, it asks you to accept the certificate, which I do and I choose to add it to my OSX Keychain as always accepted.

I can browse through the WebDAV directories as normal. But whenever I attempt to upload or download any files, I get this popup:

I click "Choose" and then the download or upload continues as normal. But every single time I do an upload or download of any files, this popup comes up asking to choose the cert again. EVERY TIME. It's unbelievably annoying.

When I click "Show Certificate" it just shows more details regarding the cert. It gives no options for "always accept" or "always choose" or anything. Just cert details.

Is there any work-around to this? This is the latest version 5.2.0. Also OSX 10.11.6.
