Since FileZilla wokrs with sftp it would be a very needed feature like ssh public key authorization. Lots of companies use this authorization method because of it's ease of use and security (there's no way loosing a password). And when companies use this method thay are forbiding password authorization method, so there's no way using FileZilla. FileZilla could implement this by providing a button "browse" in it's site manager instead of or near the "password:" line while "servertype:" is selected as "SFTP".

I think it would be more convenient and more obviuos for a new user to use ssh public keys like I've described, and it wouldn't depend on additional programs like "pageant". But that's only my thought. Thank you.
