Mozilla websites do not support the FTP protocol for quite some time, so you need to use the HTTP(S) protocol instead like posted above.

Note that there are a lot of links (domains) that can be used instead to access those Mozilla CDN servers.

I usually access Mozilla via https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ for update my stored copy of the Firefox installer and crash symbols... but with web ftp access going away what will I do if Filezilla won't connect to Mozilla...
