Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Particularly nice if your OS has various filetypes associated with a heavy IDE but you just wanted to look at one line. Stops you from having to choose save just to manually open in notepad/vim and then manually delete when done.

Should be normal browser behaviour. Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an essential add-on until such functionality is integrated into the browser itself. (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57342)

Comes in handy when you encounter a misconfigured webserver or want to display files directly in the browser. I'm not a daily user but this add-on saved my day several times. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must-have for me, I love the way Firefox formats different file types and it makes for easy tabbing between different types of files.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my indispensable plugins. This should be built into the browser, but seeing that it's not, this extension is positively awesome.

It should be built-in to the browser. What more can be said?

Remember by Mime type Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon! However, as other people have said, it would be good if you could have it remember your answer based on the mime type of the file.

I do lots of debugging with "application/json" and it would be nice if it always opened them as text.

One feature request Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great extension. It would be nice if you could add a setting to always open URLs matching a string or regex as a certain content-type.

For instance, I would want all URLs matching /\.sql$/ to display in the browser window as text/plain by default, without opening the custom download window.

Needs 'open in tab' option Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is great but difficult to use w/o an option to open the file in another tab or browser window.
Ignore my earlier review.

OS X download broken Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't download this in OS X. I get the invalid file hash message (-261). Works fine on the PC. Both have FF 3.0.3, I'm running OS X 1.4.11 (I love it on the PC)

Excellent, never again a misconfigured web server will force me to download a file I know that firefox can perfectly handle.

Slim must-have helper Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just searched for such an addon and i found this slim little helper.
Absolutely perfect, this is a must-have addon and it shouldn't be marked as experimental.
Especially useful for browsing file listings (e.g. 'Index of /foo')

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been looking for such extension for a very long time. Finding this one just made my day!

Mozilla/firefox devs haven't fixed a related bug for nearly 8 years now, but this extension does that... Too bad it's marked experimental and requires login for people to install.

Works a treat! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've just installed this and tried it out, it's wonderful! For quite some time, I've wished that I could "open" rather than "save" text and image files that servers try to force me to download, and this solves that problem perfectly!

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I hope this can get out of experimental soon seems only to have minor issues, I have not had a single problem!

I was looking thru addon for exactly this and am now glad that it is possable!

Thanks GiliS! Why on earth mozilla make it so darn difficult :( It's as if they are trying to stop me using it! I'm a big boy now and can make decisions for myself!
