I'm hosting my files on a FTP server. I've placed the "index.htm" and everything is supposed to be ok. The problem is that when I double-click the "index.htm", it opens up:

but at the status bar my account password appears, like what's shown below:

P.S. I've added a mosaic effect to both username and password (green hue).

I downloaded SmartFTP, opened my account in it, and tried getting a specific URL for my index file. There's an option when you're about to copy link which is choose between (FTP - FTP without Login). When I choose "FTP", the same problem occurs. While choosing "FTP without login" fails to open the page and "The page cannot be displayed" error appears.

So I just need it to be displayed like: (for instance)
ftp://website-name.host-name.com/index.htm


Any opinions?
Thanks

You need to configure the FTP server to allow anonymous logins, I believe.

Yeah, I figured it out, finally.
I had to redirect the "ftp" url to a "http" url using SmartFTP, then use the "http" as a direct url.
