4e865cf created the issue

CD is now breaking and wrecking my bookmarks.

I connect to a bookmark I've had for years and get a Warning dialog:

'''Unsecured FTP Connection
The server supports encrypted connections. Do you want to switch to FTP-SSL?'''

Clicking "Don't Show again" breaks the bookmark and puts a lock icon on it. It never connects again: just complains about the certificate being bad after that.

Presence of a VALID SSL Certificate should be VERIFIED * Before * offering to switch to FTP-SSL mode - NOT After!

All the user knows is that if he doesn't click the "Continue" button CD permanently breaks his bookmark. I've had to switch to FileZilla to Maintain some of my sites: the ones I clicked "Don't Show again" on!

Not every server that SUPPORTS FTP-SSL HAS a SSL Certificate: and CD is making wrong assumptions and breaking my bookmarks connectivity.

I Hate this intrusive and disruptive "New Feature" ...

Just edit the bookmark and change back the protocol option to FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

We cannot verify the certificate before. You can still sucessfully connect to the server with the bad certificate if you trust it. Choose Show Certificate and select to trust the certificate permamently (it will save that trust setting in your Keychain). There you will also see more information about what the problem is with the ceritificate. If you want a valid ceritificate, contact your hosting service provider.

I'm trying to stop the "Unsecured FTP connection" dialog box definitively as well, but the command line provided by dkocher is not working for me. I'm running Version 4.4 (13582) on MacOSX 10.9 (Mavericks).

The property has been changed to be protocol dependant. For FTP, use

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck connection.unsecure.warning.ftp false

Thanks, dkocher, but it's not working. I still get prompt the same warning. :(
