What does this mean? Can I still got to ftp://example.com to get files or directory listings?

That site does not respond (tried in links, to be sure - links is just sitting there with a message 'Making connection').

More generally, the ftp link for the mutt source in the current book works.

Google found a quote from mozilla at slashdot: https://tech.slashdot.org/story/18/04/10/188244/firefox-follows-chrome-and-blocks-the-loading-of-most-ftp-resources : By FTP subresources, we refer to files loaded via the FTP protocol inside img, script, or iframe tags that have a src="ftp://". FTP links placed inside normal angle bracket links or typed directly in the browser's address bar will continue to work.

The second comment answered my question. Thanks.
