  • I'm trying to get a PDF file on my HD to open in a tab in Firefox rather than in Adobe Reader. This doesn't work for that. So far, nothing that I have found does. :o(
  • Only request that I can't see has already been made, is to make this add-on no-restart. Restarting the browser to install an extension like this seems like it should be unnecessary.

    *EDIT* Just found something I assumed this add-on could facilitate, also - Open GZIP or ZLIB compressed files in browser, without decompression by separate utility beforehand. Currently when trying to open a GZIP compressed file (without a file extension), the only option this add-on gives is to "View Source", not "[Open in] Web Browser".
  • Would be great if it could also be programmed to allow the URL and/or file contents to be passed to a specific file via command line (along with other arguments). Would also be great if behaviors could be made site-specific...
  • Amazing , can't live without it anymore, pity that Firefox goes back in this matters
  • similar to the view-source option could you add support for jar
  • Awesome.You can even add your own mimetypes using the "extensions.openinbrowser.additional_mimes" setting.

    It would be even better if you could use the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" checkbox with it, though.
  • "Open in Browser" works well enough but it would be EVEN BETTER if you were allowed to save your preferences for certain files. For example, I installed this add-on just so I wouldn't have to save every image I wanted to view. But now I have to tell Firefox to open the image in the browser everytime, which is what I was trying to avoid doing in the first place. Hopefully they can fix this in the near future with an update or two.

  • Very useful!

    Feature suggestion: word-wrap. Unfortunately many text files are difficult to read without it (constant horizontal scrolling, back and forth!).
  • Fills the weird gap in firefox of really obvious and expected functionality: to open something in the browser when you use the browser to open it!
  • Works great, but a minor annoyance has popped up under Firefox 17 . . . The save dialog looks normal for most types, but the dialog for executables isn't resizing properly; and the buttons are half on screen and half off screen at the bottom of the dialog. Disabling this extension fixes the issue, and reenabling it brings it back.
  • Just installed this. was searching around for this functionality, thanks a lot.
  • Works sometimes. I have a financial site that uses Content-Disposition = attachment for pdf files. It also uses Content-Type = Application/pdf.

    Even with this add-on, for this site FF asks me to save the pdf and does not display it in FF.

    Note: that in Preferences > Applications "Display in Firefox" is selected.
  • Very good add on, I just wish I could change the default selection to Image instead of Text.
  • brilliant
  • This addon realy should be built-in as others have stated!

    Although it would be greatly appreciated if it would open documents in new tab instead of current open tab or at least a checkbox in settings that allows this.
  • Great extension, I hate some of the sites without these basic usability.

    I notice a bug though. On wallpaperswide.com, downloaded images has open in browser as text by default.
  • Finding this add-on is more important for your life than finding Jesus.
  • This is great!
  • Дякую!!!!! Дійсно корисний додаток.
  • This is a must-have add-on for anyone who often browses though various text files (source-code, TeX, etc) or mis-configured webservers.
    It really should be built in to Firefox.
    Agree it would be nice to see some integration with the Options/Applications page, so that the choice could be made permanent.
  • This is so fundamental that it should really be built-in, as RD suggests above. Brilliant extension nonetheless.
  • Veeery useful! :-)
    And thanks for Seamonkey support!
  • 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.
  • 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. :)
