I use my internet browser(s) to access FTP sites, I just got Firefox recently and the only thing keeping me from removing IE from the desktop is that the file browser in Firefox is text-based. How can I change the file viewing format to that of windows?

You can't, the method that Internet Explorer uses is powered by Windows itself.

In theory Firefox should be able to do it as well in the same way BUT that then goes against everything that Firefox stands for in terms of security - ie not being hooked as part of Windows.

Just remove the Internet Explorer shortcut from the desktop and use this Firefox Extension to open FTP sites in IE:
