FileZilla client uses the default SSH agent, which is really useful.
However, when the SFTP server in question only allows password authentication, the prior key authentications by the SSH agent used by FileZilla will prevent a connection (and no password is prompted).
As a workaround I have to temporarily shut the SSH agent down when using FileZilla with password-only SFTP servers.
A solution to this issue could be the introduction of a password-only auth option field or a toggle for using the SSH agent for a server.
