If you are getting the "530 login incorrect." error, then try either

ftp://username@site ..and you should be prompted for a password.
ftp://username:password@site ..not as secure as password is visable.

Firefox 1.1 will have a username/password prompt when anonymous login fails.

Also Firefox can only view/download FTP and if you want to upload then the fireFTP extension is an option. Or if you want a nice FTP client, I recommend FileZilla (<-not related to

Oh and welcome to the mozillaZine forums. :)
