Every time I save a file from the server, it will pop up a "File has changed" prompt, and ask me if I want to upload to server. How can I stop it from asking me? Fugu would do it automatically, and it is so convenient.

If you go to the menu and click Edit > Settings, you should be able to set the default actions.

I can't imagine the fact you are using SFTP would make much of a difference.

But i did change this setting, uploads is to overwrite – derrdji Sep 26 '09 at 22:12
Did you change both the upload and download columns? – Jonno_FTW Sep 27 '09 at 5:02

The FileZilla developers have decided to make users confirm the prompt every single time. It's a long-standing debate between users and the developers, but the developers seem to have their minds made up.

See these posts for details on the issue, workarounds and patches:
