it looks like the stable version of filezilla is now 3.1.5.  is there
any particular reason you need to use 3.0.11?  if not, maybe 3.1.5 has
the generic proxy option?

i used to use filezilla, and then the generic proxy option disappeared,
like you are describing.  i talked to the developers and they said
something like they forgot to include the generic proxy option, or they
didn't feel it was needed, or something like that.  so, i started using
WinSCP, which had the option for FTP connection with proxy.  not sure if
you are using Windows, but perhaps there is another application you can
try, if filezilla no longer works well with Tor.
