Deleting remote folder in FileZilla

I can't delete a remote folder from my linux shared webserver using FileZilla (Mac/Linux). I've CHMODed a few times to 777 on the folder and its parent as well. I'm using the latest versions of FileZilla. Control/Right-Click -> Delete does nothing. FileZilla refreshes.

"This is commonly caused by a hidden file, commonly the .htaccess file. If you're using the newer version you can toggle this under Server -> Force showing hidden files. You can then go into the directory and see the hidden files (if any) and delete them. If this does not work, contact your host, they will be able to remove the folder for you.

If you have shell access to your webspace, you can use chown on the directory. If you do not, contact your host."
