First, thanks for WinSCP. It is a great tool.
In this bug report, I use WinSCP 5.18.5 RC in Explorer mode, fresh new, under Windows 10, with Firefox 78.11.0 ESR.
I recently wanted to use it for a new need: I am building some web tool which generates several files. For some input, my HTML code will be:
www.example.com(it sets the user name, the ppk3 key) and only prompts for the passphrase. OK, great. Then I keep on working with my tool which now gives me another href:
/dir1/dir2/or on another part of the file tree I went to. So I now click on the second href: the login window appears but it prompts for a user name, it knows nothing from the PPK to use. If I uncheck "Open new externally initiated sessions in existing window", a new window will open and does know about the user name, the ppk to use and prompts for the passphrase.
I don't know if this is some bug, some mistake i do, my misunderstanding of the documentation. I would prefer to stick with only one window and more precisely with only one session (only one tab). I could accomodate if opening a new link does open a new tab. But i would prefer only one tab at all.
So what is the best practice to configure winscp to only use one session when initiated externally from a protocol URL address in a web browser, please?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Best regards, Thierry.
