Mathematica V10 returns an error when download directory.

URLFetch :: invhttp: "FTP: could not retrieve (RETR failed) the specified file."

V9 successfully retrieves the same reference. This code successful: Import["ftp://source:get@ftp.palemoon.org/integrated_statusbar-3.0.zip"] But this failed: Import["ftp://source:get@ftp.palemoon.org/"]
