- von Hackerpcs, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenExcellent addon, I use with mpv (various settings like mpv.exe --ytdl-raw-options=format="bestvideo[height<=?1080]+bestaudio/best" to avoid 4K that my internet doesn't handle, mpv.exe --ytdl-raw-options=format=bestaudio for audio only),
to download videos with the help of youtube-dl and a bat file (can be done without a bat, I download both bestvideo and best),
to test pages on ESR (firefox.exe -profile "path\to\ESR\profile" -no-remote) or Chromium or Opera,
to use pre-Quantum addons like DownthemAll or HDS/HLS link detector on 56.0.2,
Very handy, highly recommended.
Easy backup/restore entries option
- von gradinaruvasile, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenIt works well.
This extension should be renamed to something more appropriate like "Open url with..." because it can work with anything you put there not just browsers.
I use it not for browsers but to open links with MPV media player (youtube links mainly).
- von kelendral, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen6.8.6 version took some hacks for Basilisk.
I've got the toolbar button working on my Basilisk install matching the one on my Pale Moon install. Took some slight modifications of about-openwith.js, openwith.js, and openwith-fx.xul
It is cool seeing Pale Moon icon in my Basilisk and Basilisk icon in my Pale Moon status bars.
Also convenient for checking how sites render in IE, Edge, FF, Chrome easily.
I prefer the 6.8.6 version on my browsers which will continue to support XUL addons.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13720958, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenI thought the instructions were fairly simple. Install python. Open a command prompt and run the Python script. Great extension, very very useful.
- von TigerMan, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenLoved this extension for such a long time and now on Firefox 57 is fantastic. Even better, developer Geoff has the support of his work that other developers should aspire to. Thank you.

So far this is working fine with Windows 8.1 - I will report back if I have any issues in 7 or 10 when I get around to installing it on my other systems.
For those not understanding WHY this new setup is required, Firefox has completely changed how extensions will work moving forward. Long story short, they took away the deep functionality which pretty much all developers relied on. Trust me, no one is happy about it and the majority of devs are publicly jumping ship.
However, I'm not sure of the issue from reviewers about installing Python for this extension to work, since all it does is expand a few language extensions in the background on your computer. Python has been around since 1991 and trustworthy. A standard user will never see a difference in any normal day to day operations.
For those who do not understand how to install in Windows:
1. Install Python (Download from link, run file, and then follow install screens)
2. Download the linked .py file and then move it to a special folder or the root of your C:/ drive (I put mine under the python install folder/Lib)
3. Open a Windows Command prompt (Type command or cmd into Start Menu search and select the cmd.exe)
4. Navigate inside the command prompt to the folder where you put the file in #2 (i.e. "cd c:\path_of_file_folder")
5. Run the command given in instructions: "open_with_windows.py install" (You must be in the same folder as the file)
6. Click Test in the extension info screen inside of Firefox. It will tell you immediately if it worked and you can begin finding/adding external programs to launch
- von M. Möhling, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenWorks fine, lightweight open source .py helper file,* option to select all installed browsers, good job.
* with FF 57, all other "open with" addons require external helper files, too, one of them is 20 MB on Linux... However, the Python helper file has to be installed using the command line, which may be difficult for some users.
- von yarnweaver, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenHave successfully transitioned to the new version with the external Python helper application (on ubuntu, a version of python was already previously installed). For the previous version, I had "browsers" (actually custom scripts) specified by command line, and the UI for the new version made it relatively painless to re-create them. The biggest frustration was that browsers configured under the old version aren't automatically imported into the new version upon upgrade - and in my first attempt to set a browser up, I got my entry for the "name" and the "command" field the wrong way round - but after correcting that mistake, it worked first time.
