Amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This works perfectly for me for all MS office files. Must have add-on.
Works Great on Firefox 37 Beta Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Exactly what I wanted. Allowed me to open rather than save EXE files and did so flawlessly. Not sure why it wouldn't work for some people, but I can confirm that it does work as intended in my case.
It does not work in Firefox 33 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The developer would say it works in this version but it definitely does not and it's so annoying if you are trying to install a windows fix that when you try to extract the files they disappear.
Sorry that you experienced problems with OpenDownload2.
Does anything relevant appear in the Error Console? Did you try with all other addons disabled?
No option to open files check here Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I didn't even notice this feature was missing until today as I've always had an addon that fixed it, but it flatout disappeared from my extensions for some reason.
The problem is in the Firefox application settings. Open that up and you'll see some files have "always ask" while others have "save file". Just click the dropdown button where it says "save file" and change it to "always ask". Took me forever to figure that out.
Excelent plugin but doesn't work on Firefox 32.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The plugin is very useful but it seems that it doesn't work on the latest Firefox version (32.0.1). The "Run" button does nothing.
Seems strange, but the plugin is working fine now. Maybe it's thanks to updating to the version 32.0.2. Anyway, thank you for your reply! :)
I just tested it in the newest 33.0 beta. It works for me.
Could you provide more information about your environment? Does anything relevant appear in the error console? Better send me an e-mail with that. :-)
Thanks in advance!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you, epic addon
It's really great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It's so good, but there is a bug in v. 4.0.0, beacause the plugin doesn´t create the preference of where to save files before running it.
That's not a bug. The preference is only needed if you want to change the location yourself. :)
Is not working since 2 days ago. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Since 2 days ago, "RUN" doesn't work. Please need a fix.
Edit: everything ok at the moment, thanks to fix, because there are lot of add-ons outdated.
Another thing, the rating isn't importante, the important thing is the add-on useful
There's a fix in the Developer Channel. Thanks for the low rating.
edit: The fix is on the website and in the AMO review queue. :)
edit: Well, a bad rating stating that there's no fix will confuse users. No problem, technically, but ... :)
Decent, but BEWARE OF CHANGING DEFAULT DOWNLOAD FOLDER Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This is a usable, handy extension, but if you change the default download folder as described below (adding to about:config) BEWARE that if you set it to an existing folder (e.g. Download) it will delete EVERYTHING in that folder! This is LuckWare i.e. it does a handy thing within very tight constraints.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
... as described on the add-on page, and by default OD² uses a completely own folder.
Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very useful! This should definitely be included in Firefox by default.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Not sure how to reply to an existing response.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is not a 'new' review, but a response to the Developer.
Sorry for not responding sooner, my OS is Windows 7 Ultimate (SP1) x64. The downloads that were failing were all .exe files, and it doesn't matter where it came from, it always gave the error.
I have no idea why it does it, because it works perfectly fine in 3.4.3 but fails to work in 3.5.x.
Browser versions I tried it on were FireFox 25.0.1 and Firefox 28.0.
Anything relevant in the error console?
(Maybe you'd better send me some e-mail so this doesn't spoil the reviews :-))
Great Add-On!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Absolutely a great Add-On. I write reports in HTML and use FF portable along with some other portable apps to run independent of the user's system and this Add-On has saved me much time in creating run links for my reports.
On a side note, I did have problems with 3.5.1 like another user and 3.4.3 did clear it up so I'm good. Thanks for a great little app.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is an awesome extension, but I have a concern. The addon works perfectly, but when I Run something then visit my Downloads history and click the "Open file location" button on that download, the containing folder contains older downloads which were "run" and they were complete and still worked, so I am concerned. I download some pretty big stuff, so I'm wondering if the folder is cleared automatically. I don't want to run out of disk space!
Edit: (reply to developer) My Browser was Firefox 29 (while using the extension) and my OS is Vista. I'm sure that the same thing happens with Firefox 28.
Edit 2: fixed some confusing content.
Yes it is, as stated on the site.
(Well... it could as well be a bug. Which browser/OS?)
Настройки (Setting) Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Как настроить папку для сохранения скаченных файлов?
(How to configure a folder to save downloaded files?)
Go to about:config, add the string "extensions.openDownload2.downloadPath" and set it to the folder you wish. :-)
Такого пункта там нет (There is no such item).
Because you have to add it...

Complicated but more safeThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Perfect, except for Windows 8.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love this Add-on, using it since forever. However, on Windows 8.1 x64, the first time I download something in a new session, the download fails (&lt;file&gt; could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.). Happens for random files. Could you please fix this?
Edit: fiddled around with the extensions. Can't really find the culprit, but after reinstalling some stuff it works perfectly now. You're add-on deserves all the five stars!
Uhm... any other extensions?
Should be included Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Finally! I have been looking for this feature for AGES! Thanks! I think Mozilla should add this in settings, or at least in about:config. Thanks a bunch. :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
I love to. :)
Another 'Must Have' Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for the 3.5.1 version. Downloaded it from your website and all works fine here. (Win 7 Firefox 26.0) You only truly realise how important something is when it's missing... and I missed this a LOT!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
Thanks for your kind words. :-)
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Absolutely positively must have for folks such as myself who have made the move from IE to Firefox. Seems to be about the ONLY major feature missing, why on earth someone would prevent me from making the choice to simply run a downloaded file versus saving it first for "security reasons" is mind boggling. Considering the fact that FF is supposed to be the "open" standard, and IE is anything but :) In any case, I gave it four stars because I'm confident that someday soon it will be up and running on FF 26.0, keeping my fingers crossed that it will be soon. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
Well, I have a beta version up and running, still struggling on some machines, not sure why.
