This might not get fixed for FileZilla 2 anymore, but FileZilla 3 (beta), the next major version of FileZilla, still seems to have this issue with the installer.

The best way to fix this would be a checkbox/radio buttons to select whether FileZilla menu items should be created for the current user only, or for all users.

The silent installation of FileZilla ("Filezilla_Setup.exe /S") should get a parameter added as well which tells the program to install for all users or only for the current user. -- Feature taken from now closed "[ 1575230 ] Silent Setup for ALLUSERS"

The previously mentioned RFE was for the server, this one is for the client, so the other RFE is not yet closed.
