I have just accidently found that is possible to import anybodies complete web into FrontPage without a password/username.

How do I prevent this happening. I have a lot code that I do not want to be downloaded by browsers to my site.

You don't. They don't even need FrontPage -- if you put it on the web, users see it. They have to. If the browser can't read the code, you don't have a page.

And if you don't want the code to be downloaded, don't put it up. ;-) Or use server side scripts, which the user will NOT see, because they're processed on the SERVER, not the CLIENT.

"I have a lot code that I do not want to be downloaded by browsers to my site."

If your site doesn't support FTP (or only you have password access to the server) they can make a copy of your page and monkey with it, but they'll not be able to replace yours with theirs.  Your stuff is safe (assuming sufficient server security).  But what WW says is right, you can't prevent people from monkeying around with a copy of it.  It's just like karoake, somebody makes a copy of the song and puts their own voice on it.  It doesn't replace the original.
