I love filezilla but have been forced to use the slower WinSCP for 1 reason and 1 reason only, I am paranoid about holding down my mouse for too long when navigating to a directory and accidentally moving a directory, imagine the consequences of moving your entire home folder to root etc. I am asking that you please add the option of having a simple prompt "do you want to move dir1 into dir2?" YES/NO. Thank you for reading

I am experiencing the same problem on my iMac with MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. I think this is more than a feature request--it is a defect. The drag action is way too sensitive. I don't have this problem in the Finder or any other app. But in Filezilla I have had whole directory structures copied to the wrong place many times. I have to "nail down" the mouse to make sure there is absolutely no movement when clicking a local directory to select it. Otherwise, I see the mouse cursor change to a green circle with a +, and the operation can't be stopped, so I have to wait for a big unwanted copy operation or terminate Filezilla from the Activity Monitor. There has to be a less sensitive implementation of drag-and-drop. If not, the "Do you want to move/copy..." prompt needs to be there.
