Description from store The "Open in Firefox" extension simplifies opening the current tab or links within the current tab in the Firefox browser. This functionality can be initiated via the right-click context menu, a toolbar button, or left-clicking on a link with or without a modifier key. This extension streamlines link transfer between different web browsers, eliminating the need to copy a link from one browser, paste it into the OS clipboard, and then paste it into another browser. Key Features: - Open a website's hostname directly in Firefox. - Open a specific URL in Firefox. - Launch all URLs containing a specific keyword in Firefox. - Optionally close the current tab after transferring a link. - Optionally, do not block the left-click action when transferring a link. - Support for managed storage, allowing administrators to configure extension settings. - Support for user-defined JS script to decide whether the link should be blocked and passed to the Firefox browser or not When the extension detects an open instance of the Firefox browser, it opens the link in a new browser tab. If no open Firefox instance is found, it initiates a new Firefox window. You can customize URLs or hostnames to be automatically redirected to Firefox from the options page. You also have the option to close the source tab once the link transfer is completed. This allows you to view a specific website in Firefox, even if Chrome is your primary browser. Important Notes: 1. To use this extension to open links in the Firefox browser, you'll need to install a minimal native client. Installation instructions for the native client are provided when you attempt to open a link. Additionally, there are two short video tutorials in the screenshot section, covering installation steps for both Windows and Linux or Mac operating systems. 2. This extension supports managed storage, allowing domain administrators to configure certain preferences. 3. It can send links via left-click, a combination of left-click and a keyboard meta key, or during top-level navigation. 4. As of now, there is no version available for Chrome OS.

  • (2023-09-21) Artur Santos: Doesn't work for url's that are in the Chrome bookmarks, so it's useless for me.
  • (2023-08-13) ARatQuiRit: For me it’s working as expected. What about the context menu option though ? I did not find if I can remove it…
  • (2023-08-08) Glen McIvor: Just couldn’t get it to work on Linux Mint 21 Installed “install.sh” and got the result >>> host is ready <<< but when tested got “cannot find the native client. Follow the 3 steps to install the native client”. So I will just have to copy and paste for now.
  • (2023-07-31) Simon Dottor: It doesn't work entirely as it should, for instance I want to use it in the Protonmail PWA, but only the interface elements are opened in Firefox, not links in the email.
  • (2023-06-15) Maksim Beliaev: that is an excellent app that works brilliantly. Thank you very much!
  • (2023-02-16) Xavier Hubbard: This solves my problem exactly. I can use PWAs in edge and open their links in Firefox. Thank you for making this.
  • (2023-02-05) Rashed Hossain: be honestly it is very useful Firefox is an awesome site
  • (2022-12-28) ללמוד מין: התקנה קצת מסורבלת אבל זה עובד פיקס! צריך להוריד את הקובץ שמופיע בדף לאחר שמנסים ללחוץ על הכפתור בפעם הראשונה.. ואז צריך לחלץ את הקובץ למקום כל שהוא [תזכרו לאן חילצתם] ואז צריך להיכנס לתיקיה המחולצת וללחוץ על קובץ בשם "install.bat" הוא ישלח 2 קבצים אל תקיית הדפדפן על מנת שהוא יוכל להיות בתקשורת איתו.. יתחיל לרוץ טקסטים בתוך חלון שחור, ובשלב מסויים הם יפסיקו לרוץ, הוא יבקש ממכם ללחוץ על מקש כל שהוא, ולאחר שתלחצו על מקש כל שהוא החלון השחור יסגר. וזהו כעת בלחיצה אחת יתבצע מעבר של הלשונית הנוכחית מדפדפן כרום לדפדפן פיירפוקס. אותו תוסף ניתן להתקנה גם בפיירפוקס וכך ניתן להעביר לשוניות בין הדפדפנים. הקובץ נבדק באמצעות AVAST ולא נמצא בו וירוסים. תהנו :)
  • (2022-12-18) Prynce: I imagine the extension works fine, but the thing is, my chromebook cant work with this extension. and i cant find why that is. i don't know if my chromebook is a specific make and model, or if my chromebook isn't completely updated. But the video attached to this says that the extension's compatible with chromebooks, even though it's not working for me. \_(-_-)_/
  • (2022-09-25) M Sand: works great to allow opening broken chrome sites.
  • (2022-08-10) Eren Chin: Hi!can u make "open in firefox.xpi"?So that I can switch from waterfox to firefox, as well as from the second profile of firefox to default profile:)
  • (2022-07-21) Adam Olejniczak: Works as expected. Wanted to use Gmail in Chrome but rest in Firefox and it allows me to do just that. Tested on MacOS. Thanks you.
  • (2022-04-24) Roosevelt Erubey: Funciona increíblemente genial y MUY rápido. Puedes agregar palabras clave y te abre automáticamente el enlace en Firefox, es super sencilla de usar y configurar. Me ha encantado, me hace la vida más fácil. OJO, te pide instalar un pequeño script adicionalmente.
  • (2022-04-11) Adriano Ponte: Funciona perfeitamente.
  • (2022-01-19) Dwi Sasongko TK19C: SOMETIMES WORKS
  • (2021-12-30) Hany Aloum: Firefox, Chrome and OperaGX those plugins all work perfectly, thanks.
  • (2021-08-12) R.A. de Hosson: Doesn't work anymore after update to 0.4.0 on Windows. Did work on previous version. Please fix.
  • (2021-07-20) Georgia Papayeoryiou: It doesn't seem to work for Chrome OS. I downloaded the zip file but what I got seems to be for windows and they don't have an available file for chromebooks, or at least as far as I can see. Also, the steps are way too vague and don't really help if you don't already know what you're doing. I think it should be made clear it doesn't work for chromebooks.
  • (2021-05-04) Serge Delbono: Bien, mais avec Vivaldi, et Vivaldi connect, impossible d'avoir une configuration portable d'une machine à l'autre, si elles n'ont pas le même OS !
  • (2021-03-27) Nguyen Tuyen: Thank you very much! Please to support new menu context "Open Link in incognito Firefox window"
  • (2021-02-24) feo loco: just awesome - lets me surf the web with firefox and have all my often used webapps being run as chrome SSBs (app shortcuts). thanks to reverse mode, all clicked links inside the webapps open in firefox again. thanks for this great tool!
  • (2020-11-21) Martin: It works! Great for multi-monitor setup
  • (2020-09-17) Ryan C: It works for me (and in the Brave Browser no less)! Just install the extension, download the zip file it tells you to download, extract in contents into a local folder (I used "Documents/Open in FireFox" as my folder), and then double click on the install.bat file. Hit any key in CMD Prompt when it opens and you are set! Well probably anyway.
  • (2020-09-12) Geovanna Padilla: ok
  • (2020-09-09) Y G: Doesn't work without installing additional software and that's not made clear before hand. Be honest from the start.
  • (2020-07-16) Sorin Ionuț Sbârnea: This extension is a real must for escaping Chrome Apps jailing as Google is forcing opening Chrome for any link present from a web app created with it. As Firefox support for web-apps is not yet useful for practical purposes (no dock windows or app icons on macos at least), we are forced to create web apps using Chrome. That comes with a big price: any link you click on these apps, will open in Chrome instead of using the system default browser. This extension can ameliorate this but it seems to still not work for changing all links by default, even if I tried to reverse mode.
  • (2020-06-26) Bruce Burns: I don't need the functionality of this extension myself. I was looking for a simple Windows solution to convert PDFs to Text out of the browser for a large group of people who are provided PDF files - in order to use an excellent text-to-speech reader. There might be a pdf reader and if there is I'll eventually find it. I use linux personally for most of my file manipulation including file conversions. So, 1 star for being the only kid on the block that has anything posted. The second star to encourage the developers to code this into a typical extension that provides a straightforward process. I won't be using this add-on at this time. Super Users might get it to work and that is cool esp if you don't have any other solutions. Good Luck Developers.
  • (2020-04-13) naser ebrahem363: ممتاز
  • (2020-03-23) fantasy1290: 可以用
  • (2020-02-05) Len Kowalik: I have heard some disturbing things about Google recently, but unfortunately that was not long after the purchase of my second Chromebook. The fact that it did not work for me is not the developers fault. Google should have one source for code that runs with the Chrome browser on Chromes OS, and another for the Chrome browser on everything else. The fact that the browser and the operating system are both named Chrome has always been a source of confusion.
  • (2020-01-21) Brian Spearman: Doods, works flawless. Low stars are from non-doods.
  • (2019-12-01) Dezider Meško: Installing something more than an extension itself smells, but it looks like nobody else is able to do it without it (other plugins use python etc...) After quick install script review it looks ok. So hopefully it is, and it will stay safe :-) After installation works fine.
  • (2019-09-27) Je Gr: Extension has issue where if you also have Firefox Developer Edition installed, the link will open in standard Firefox and then also in Firefox Developer Edition.
  • (2019-09-14) Anthony Aniston: A great extension!!!
  • (2019-08-26) Charles Herold: Did what it said. I did have to install a small something in Windows (the first time you use the extension it will tell you what to do), but that was easy enough.
  • (2019-07-20) Ardianto: It works! Need one extra step to make it work. Thanks.
  • (2019-05-22) Ning Cao: good
  • (2019-05-12) SelfMed. pro: Flawless. The only extension that really works with any other browser with custom path. I'm using Firefox Developer Nightly or Edge Canary (with the Chrome engine). The rest of the similar extensions (the one for example that you need install Python) are should earn lower stars, but not this extension. This works. Low stars? Don't trust them, especially if you need seamless integration opening URL's in any other browser.
  • (2019-04-28) Egor Levkin: Удобноэ разшырениэ
  • (2019-03-11) Vickie Smith: This is not compatible to my chrome book computer. It will not down load even though it states that it is compatible to chrome book computers.

  • (2018-10-13) Виталий Мельник: It is free, simple and I have never heard it had traded personal data or had serious security flaws.
  • (2018-09-27) Andre Goree: Does exactly what it says it does, works flawlessly.
  • (2018-09-17) Ismael Ramirez: It works. You have to install something in your PC that takes you 15 seconds and then it´s set to start.
