At work we have a large website - I "own" three directories. I am wondering if I can have only two sites in the site manager in Filezilla, but after supplying a password, it asks which remote directory I wish to go to, versus having to navigate down from the root, or have 6 identical sites (dev and live) in the manager.

In trying, and failing, to find a way to cause such a prompt I kept overlooking that you already have this available.
Just create your two sites, and then after connecting enter the desired directory into the "Remote site:" field that appears above the directory tree/file listing. It's functionally identical to the prompt you're after, but just happens to be built directly into the interface(currently reads
Is that somehow not enough?
I find that using the FileZilla Site Manager I like to set "Default remote directory" under the advanced settings. You can add all the different permutations of directories on the server as separate sites.
Your six sites need not be identical in the manager. You could do:
But all of them could have the same hostname/username/password combination, but by using the "Default remote directory" to put yourself in the correct virtual host directory you don't have identical sites in the site manager.
