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“.
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.
