After chrome, MozilladeclareFirefox will remove support for the FTP protocol. In the future, Firefox users will not be able to download files through FTP protocol or browse the contents of FTP web sites / folders on browsers. Mozilla engineer Michal Novotny gave the same reason as chrome: for security reasons. FTP is an insecure protocol, he said, and downloading resources over HTTPS is more secure. In addition, some FTP codes are quite old and difficult to maintain, and many bugs have been found in the past. Mozilla plans to disable FTP in its June release of Firefox 77.
