Nice tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really nice tool. BTW, it might be better to add some simple "user guide" here, since "View -> Slide Bar -> CHM Reader" isn't that easy to find. I just found this path in above posts :-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1).

Opening CHM Files From Nautilus Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Pretty good plugin so far. If you would like to open the CHM files from Nautilus (the windows manager for Gnome), then right click on the CHM file and select "Open with other Application..." from the context menu.
The "Open with" dialog should now be visible. Select "Firefox" and expand the "Use custom command" option. Replace "firefox" with "firefox chm:%U" and apply the command by clicking the "Open" button.
The CHM file will now open in Firefox and any time afterwards when a CHM file is double clicked.
thank you ^^ Rated 5 out of 5 stars
this addon and manoramosmz's comment just saved my life :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1).
Nice Add-on (if you know hot to use it) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I knew someone in the Mozilla community had this resolved. Thanks Mr. Li for your work.
I only suggest that you add a reference in the Add-on page on how to use it. Most people (including me) think that just double clicking the chm file will do the job (and we know that you have to go to the View --> Sidebar --> CHM Reader)
I really need this addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hope this addon can support firefox 3 as early as possible! because I can't use firefox 3 without this addon!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1).

PDF 是通过插件程序单独下载、显示的。PDF 也确实可以分页下载。以后会尝试实现下载后直接打开的功能。
can not be installed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
this version can not be installed under firefox build type (Linux_x86_64_gcc3).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1).
Great extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great extension, lets you open CHM files easily on linux and lets you zoom CHM files on Windows, which the default CHM browser doesn't. The only thing on my wishlist would be to open the file directly through the file > "open file" entry, instead of having a separate file > "open chm files" one.
That's all, great extension!
Simple but nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like the idea of being able to read CHM files in Firefox. I have a suggestion though. If there would be a way to implement a contents bar and index search through the AIOS, that would be nice.
Also, is there a way that Firefox can open the CHM files via the context menu in Windows Explorer? If you could just right click and open the CHM in Firefox, that would be cool too.
All in all, this is a simple but nice little extension.
Great simple viewer Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Once you learn how to work with it, it's great. Nothing awesome, but works nicelly and does what it says it does.
Could have a bar/button to add to the FF window, for ease of use, and the characters are too small by default, but it's great even so.
To open a file, just go to "File > Open CHM Files" or "View > Pannel(?) > CHM Reader".
