I've read the previous posts, and I do realize that the default FTP protocol does not support file date/time preservation. I also realize that not all FTP servers support MDTM. The problem is that if an updated file is uploaded to a web server only one short minute after it's been saved, FileZilla's compare-by-date feature is rendered useless because the uploaded file will have a later time stamp.
For those of us who do use web/ftp servers that do support MDTM, and I'm sure there are many, *please* reconsider adding this feature to FileZilla. If file date/time preservation was among FileZilla's many other features, it would be the *perfect* FTP program, in my opinion.
