This question is exactly what is says on the tin.

At the moment, with default settings, all ftp:// links (even bookmarks in the Places menu created with "Connect to Server", which opens in Nautilus the first time) open in Firefox (which can only read, not write). So I have to copy the URL into nautilus to open it with nautilus to save files.

How can I make these links open in nautilus?

You can change the associations in gconf-editor. Expand desktop -> gnome -> url-handlers and find the entry for FTP and change the command to your preferences.

If that doesn't work, try to edit or add:

x-scheme-handler/ftp=nautilus to ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list


x-scheme-handler/ftp=nautilus-folder-handler.desktop to /etc/gnome/defaults.list
