Anyone use a web browser to access their website using ftp ?

I have tried Windows 11 and firefox to no avail - just get an error message - and have been advised by the provider to use an add on like filezilla.


Surely a web-browser should work though ?

Web browsers used to work fine until a few years ago, or at least Internet Explorer did but then changed for the worst (much to the annoyance of everyone where I work as that's how we sent links/data to clients)

I now use Total Commander, it's got a little splash screen which pesters you for registration but is fully functioning and doesn't time out.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Make sure you get Filezilla from the official website only - there have been versions knocking around on other download sites that have been infected with malware.

Another option is Winscp (if you're on Windows, as the name implies!)
