I can still log on SFTP sites with my FileZilla 3.38.1 but as soon as I try to upload or download it crashes (window just disappears). Plan FTP seems to download the file but FileZilla crashes after that regardless.

The one thing I did earlier today (Mac's been on for a couple of days) was to try to install a newer version of nano with Brew which might have messed with libraries, I still had the terminal open to copy the following output:

==> Caveats
ncurses is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local,
because macOS already provides this software and installing another version in
parallel can cause all kinds of trouble.

If you need to have ncurses first in your PATH run:
  echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/ncurses/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile

For compilers to find ncurses you may need to set:
  export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/opt/ncurses/lib"
  export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/opt/ncurses/include"

For pkg-config to find ncurses you may need to set:
  export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/ncurses/lib/pkgconfig"

I did a reboot in the hopes that any environment variables were only temporary but that did not help. Not very familiar with that side of macOS. Tried using AppCleaner to delete FileZilla and "re-install" but it doesn't seem to have cleared everything as I still had my saved sites not sure how to do that properly.

Also I now see in the console a kernel Volatile ERROR "Sandbox: filezilla(1751) System Policy: deny(2) file-write-unlink /Users/<me>/Library/Saved Application State/org.filezilla-project.filezilla.savedState/restorecount.plist"

On startup the filezilla process itself raises 3 log entries UNIX error exception: 17 but not much else.

  • It creates the file locally (downloads) or remotely (uploads) but crashes after that. I think the Sandbox log entry is also the reason why I can't fully clean up with AppCleaner – Recct Nov 29 '18 at 11:35

I didn't find a root cause but the only thing that did fix it was to delete the FileZilla configuration folde ~/.config/filezilla and re-launch FileZilla.

You can export your saved sites and settings and restore them the above procedure.
