Sometimes you get ftp download links that are formatted in such a way that they contain username and passwords in the downloadlink. such as:
When you copy/paste this link in your browser the download will simply start.
If you extract the required informations from the link (site; remote folder; username; password and filename) and use the 'Manual Transfer (Ctrl+M)' function of filezilla then it doesn't work.
It looks like this is because filezilla always tries to get a directory listing and possibly some other information, which the remote server refuses.
Would it be possible to add a feature that does simply start downloading without any other actions that could be blocked by the remote server? Or a check box in the manual download to disable asking for remote listings.
Alternatively a url bar in the manual download dialog into which the user can paste the URL and filezilla automatically extract the information and starts the download.

Downloading files does not require directory listings. Are you sure you entered the correct path? They may be relative to the home directory.
