@Rico La Fonda, I just downloaded latest version (0.8.1.1) today and it's working fine with Firefox 5.0.1 and EditPad.

I include plain text files as well as html files in my website and this plugin is just great for offline editing of plain text files before refreshing them in Firefox (which also displays them). Maybe this is an unintended use, but sure works well for me. Of course its main purpose is to edit your html source code in your favorite editor while viewing in FF (after refreshing, of course).

Just what the doctor ordered Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This simple, yet powerful add-on is perfect for many purposes. Source can be "viewed" with any application, so it's not just limited to viewing HTML source. Send embedded images to Photoshop. Override Firefox's assumption (or the website's MIME info) about a link by sending it directly to Word/Excel/PowerPoint. View CSS in Dreamweaver. Even "view" a page in an alternate browser (sacrilegious, I know).

A very good add-on. I use it especially to view pictures directly with irfanview. Works perfectly.

I've used this over the years and it's been great, but I can't get it to work now for the life of me. It keeps telling me "invalid path".
Here's the path - C:\Program Files\Notepad++

Great way to replace the crummy FF source viewer - notepad++.

ショートカットキーとアイコンでの動作の違い(Behavioral differences in keyboard shortcuts and icons) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

TB 3.0.4にて。

私は受信メールが「暗号化」や「署名」されている場合、Add-onsの「Enigmail」を利用して復号化して表示しています。このメールに対してショートカットキー(default: Ctrl+Shift+U)を使って開くと、本当のソースが表示されません。この場合の表示は、復号化された内容が利用されている感じに見えます。
しかし、「ViewSourceWithのアイコン」を使って開かれた場合には、ソースが正しく表示されます。
何故動作が違うのか理解できません。


In TB 3.0.4.

I received an email "encrypted" or "signature" If it is, Add-ons of "Enigmail" has been decoded and displayed using. Shortcut key for this message (default: Ctrl + Shift + U) using the open, does not show the real source. View this case, it looks like that is decrypted using the content.
However, "ViewSourceWith icon" when opened using the source will be displayed correctly.
I can not understand why the behavior is different.

Excellent! In Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu 10.04 this has replaced several other addons for me. It can open files or text in all kinds of applications. Super useful. Thanks. My only complaint is it could be a little more user friendly for us average folk. I'm no louse, but the mapping function seems to affect all my entries even when I choose for it not to. The documentation declares this shouldn't be the case, however the documentation is somewhat sparse...I'll continue to look through the forums, but it should be easier...Not just developers find this useful! Thanks!

Can't see source? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like the idea of this a lot, IF I could make it work. I thought this (when added to Thinderbird) would let me view the HTML I had pasted into the mail to be sent, but after a successful install (Thunderbird 3+) I can't see anything new in Thinderbird that looks like it would let me view the source in my outgoing mail before it's sent. PLS reply to dwpenn@cox.net

表示しているWebページのソースコードや関連外部ファイル(JS、CSS、画像ファイル等)を指定したアプリケーションで表示できるのはもちろん、テキストエリア内のテキストをテキストエディタで編集できるのがすばらしい。

テキストエリア内でのテキスト編集は一般に窮屈であるし、日本語のように変換操作のためにEnterキーを使う場合に誤送信の危険もあるが、この拡張機能によってこれらの問題は解決できる。外部のテキストエディタで編集することでバックアップを取ることも容易になる。

Make a backup file :) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I thought it was a general text editor and it be neat to use with the spell checker plug-in. But as soon as I loaded the file it was destroyed. Months of work lost.

won't work on OSX. When you add a text editor, you always have a error message. It seem did not able to launch the application (xxx.app). And if you open the .app, it's impossible to select the executable stored inside. I hope this solved soon.

Without a doubt one of the most useful extensions I have used in Firefox (and I use quite a few !). It's completely configurable, and allows you to set up multiple source code editing/viewing programs, and does the job intended...VERY WELL. Well done Davide, you have done the Firefox community proud with such a useful and well used tool for our favorite browser. I teach web design and having this extension available to my students is extremely convenient.

This add-on when used with my home-made homepage has been wonderful. I created a homepage with about 200 catagorized and regularly used web pages AND text and pdf files in my computer. Getting quick access to the basic HREF code to add or change links has been wonderful. The in-computer homepage helps me get out of sticky lock-up situations too. And, having plain text documents like address/phone list, birthdays, passwords, etc is wonderful. Thanks so much for making life easier.

Coders' Tool: Opens Server-Side (vs. alphabit-soup) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Do you need more control over your "Browser-View", and its counterpart-- the server-side source-code, unadulterated by parsing-- to view the default text source, as it was when you originally authored it in Notepad, or Gedit?

Are you certain the source is made up of several different files, such as an index.php dependent upon include 'header.include.php', 'config.inc.php', etc.?

Have you ever wanted to view a web, source file-- as it appears /TO/ the browser, before she actually parses the code-- before your source is modified to her own ideals (removing anything she perceives as "junk", for your greater viewing pleasure of course)? ?

The Bottom line: If you work in HTTP-server-side scripting languages, you NEED this extension (which works in FF, SM, TB, and more)!

Excellent! I don't know why this isn't built into Firefox out of the box, but this extension is exactly what I've been looking for.

Works great for me with UltraEdit.

Instant relief! My thanks to the developer! The 'fixes' out there didn't totally work as it caused system errors to pop up. This is perfect.
