This is by design.

Your certificate may be valid, but is it authentic? Only safe way is for you to check that using the presented information.
Browsers on the other blindly trust some certificate authorities to decide the authenticity. Problem with that is simple, all it takes is a single compromised CA to completely undermine the trust model. FileZilla prevents this by always prompting the user to actually verify the certificate.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
