Description

Hi,

I am no longer able to install FileZilla Client via windows package manager (Winget).

I believe this is a user agent check being performed on the server from some basic testing I have done.

I am not sure which UA Winget presents.

I have created an issue on Github for the repository which also shows some basic testing I have performed: https://github.com/microsoft/winget-pkgs/issues/78578

If this is not able to be fixed, I can raise a PR to get FileZilla removed from the Winget repository.

Thanks,

Jamie
