Invalid data: Filezilla is running in kiosk mode

Today I had to fix an issue in a new website of my client. I opened FilZilla and tried to add the FTP details of the site by going to File >> Site Manager. I add the “Host” details, selected protocol as “FTP”, login type “Normal”, added the “User” and “Password”, and then finally clicked on “Connect” button. Guess what happened, I was able to connect to the site – “No”. A pop up appeared saying “Filezilla is running in kiosk mode. “Normal” and “Account” logintypes are not available in this mode“.

 

Filzilla is running in kiosk mode

 

After looking here and there I found that there was an issue in Filezilla settings. I went to Edit >> Settings >> Interface,¬† under “Behaviour” there was a checkbox saying “Do not save passwords” that was checked.¬†I just unchecked this checkbox and clicked “OK” button to save the settings. After that everything was fine, I reentered the FTP details of the site by going to File >> Site Manager¬†and I got connected.
