 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?
