Modified on Mon, 07 Aug 2023 at 01:45 PM

  1. If you don't have Firefox already installed, it can be downloaded from here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/
  2. In the URL bar go to about:config
  3. If you get a warning about proceeding with caution, click 'Accept Risk and Continue'
  4. In the 'Search preference name' search bar, type 'network.ftp.enabled'
  5. If it then looks like the screenshot below, this means the setting record already exists, in this case, step 6 is not necessary - skip to step 7
  6. If it looks like the screenshot below, this means setting record does not already exist, in this case, select 'Boolean' and the + symbol on the right hand side
  7. If the value is set to 'false' then click the opposing arrows symbol on the right hand side, this will change the value to 'true'
  8. Now the value is created and set to true, go to the ftp link as you wish
