There must be something really screwy about your setup.  I've tried 
http://arts.ucsc.edu/faculty/cope/mp3page.htm in both konqueror and firefox.  
In both cases, on clicking a link I see something like 'beginning ftp 
transaction' then a login page comes up.  Looks perfectly OK to me.

In both applications I then pasted in 
ftp://arts.ucsc.edu/pub/cope/visions2.mp3 - exactly the same happened.  I got 
a login page.
