filezilla.xml file

Description

As of a few versions ago, when I open Filezilla I get an error about not being able to load the filezilla.xml file, so none of my setting are saved. I can't find that file anywhere on my hard drive, so it's not surprising that Filezilla has trouble loading it; but what do I do about it? I've seen this issue on the forums but none of the "answers" have actually helped me. Am I supposed to create the file myself? Can I download the file from the Filezilla website?
Thanks...

It's saved in ~/.filezilla/

Since Apple patronizes its users, Finder doesn't display things how they really are and only display a highly distorted view of reality. Please use a better file manager to locate the file. You can also use FileZilla to locate the file on your system.

If you don't mind losing your settings you can safely delete the file.

Thanks for your help.
The file is indeed where you suggested, which is also where Filezilla claimed to be looking and reported that it could not be found or loaded properly. Since the file IS there, could you perhaps suggest a fix to my problem? I WANT my settings saved; it seems like deleting the file will not help me in that regard unless deleting it now will result in Filezilla creating a new (and functional, loadable) file next time I run the application.

If the file doesn't exist, it'll get created automatically. However, if the file exists but isn't a well-formed XML document (for example because it got corrupted) it cannot be loaded.
