I tried installing version 3.7.3 of Filezilla on my MacBook Pro (w/ OS X 10.9 installed) and got this message:

"Filezilla cannot be installed because it from an unidentified developer."

I downloaded the file from

I am currently running FileZilla on MacOS X 10.9 "Mavericks" with no issues.

This message is usually prompted by "Gatekeeper", which is Apple's "malware checker". You can read more about the technology here:

I just posted a possible solution to this in the forums, located at this link:

I hope that this fixes your issue. Good luck.

Firezilla works great on OSX 10.9 - you need to select "Anywhere" from the "Allow apps downloaded from:" section in the "Security & Privacy" portion of System Preferences. This was the case prior to Mavericks, btw.
