There must be a misunderstanding here:
You simply *cannot* use http/https as an "ftp site", because http(s) and ftp are completely different internet protocols; they have nothing to do with each other.
You may only use a website (http or https) as a file repository for download. But as long as it is not served by an FTP server, it is not an FTP site.

FTP clients are made to support the FTP protocol, sometimes including FTPS and SFTP, but not HTTP(S). I am not aware of any FTP client that would support HTTP connections.

If you do not want to use IE, you might consider using a different browser just for these connections: try Firefox or Opera.

You might also want to consider using WGET which is a very powerful downloader with origins in the Linux/Unix world, but availybel for Windows as well:
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm
(Wget is command line based though; there is a GUI based edition under the name of WinWget: http://www.cybershade.us/winwget)

If you are merely looking for a free ftp client that supports https, CoreFTP claims to do that.  http://www.coreftp.com/
