Dont use thread titles like "Help me", try and offer some form of useful information in your thread titles, as it will help to draw attention from people that are most likely to be able to help.

I assume you mean the command line ftp command is not what you are looking for?
$ man ftp
In which case

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Always try googling the topic before asking a question. You'll get lots of answers if you google: "linux ftp client" and "linux html editor"

I'll just add that nautilus can connect to ftp servers, and you can add shortcuts to ftp accounts with passwords.
Then you just click on the icon inside of nautilus and it shows the site as if it was a folder.
You can just copy and paste from your folders using this method.

I only use filezilla for very specific needs, such as downloading or uploading 4 GB files to ftp servers that come up and down (filezilla is quite good at retrying failed transfers from the point you left off).
And filezilla also works under windows and other systems, so nothing to learn
