Attached screenshots

Chosen solution

FTP support was disabled in Firefox 88 for security reasons, according to the release notes: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/88.0/releasenotes/ (For more information, see bug 1691890 and bug 1574475.)

As a temporary workaround, you can set the network.ftp.enabled preference to true in about:config until FTP support is removed, which is planned for Firefox 90.

P.S. On Windows 7 at least, I can select "Choose other application" in the FTP message and use the Windows file explorer C:\Windows\explorer.exe to access the FTP site. This was mentioned in bug 1574475 comment 3. I used this site for testing: ftp://speedtest.tele2.net
