3.4 Stars out of 5
- by Firefox user 15242934, 6 months agoRated 1 out of 5Got this extension because I was hoping it would allow me to open RTF files from my desktop and apparently it can't do that, though everyone else seems to give it raving reviews or just 5 Stars and with most of them nott saying anything kind of makes me slightly suspicious, but that is probably just me, so I can't easily recommend this.
- by piecevcake, 6 months agoRated 4 out of 5Essential addon, should be built into FF. Works perfectly for google search results for doc*, xls*, ppt. Test by doing a google search for "Best filetype:xlsx", rightclick the icon to open in new tab. Keeps original page title, is session persistent.
Limitations (Otherwise would be 5 stars):
1. problems with different link formats (Firefox user 14393471 below), eg the icon appeared on a link which was a graphic, but it seemed to be over-ridden by the graphic link, hovering couldn't get the "open this...file" popup to appear. (placement issue? fixable by right click menu item as a backup to the icons. At least it found the link - 2 other addons didn't) .
2. Description needs updating: uses ms view app; no toolbar icon or options; doesn't find pdf (not necessary - FF does) or csv; cannot preview local PC files (they have to be on the net).

- by jfmherokiller, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I use this extension on chrome to view the homework files that my instructor puts on moodle. They for some reason post the files as word 2003 docx files which never display correctly using the default application on osx. This extension allows me to correctly view them and as an additional bonus i dont need to leave my browser to view the files. so i can save on diskspace and the effort of remembering to delete said files.
- by nioliz, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Для просмотра PDF я использую плагин, идущий в комплекте с PDF X-Change viewer, для просмотра документов OpenOffice (LibreOffice) я использую аддон ODF Viewer, а документы docx у меня в нем не открываются, выскакивает стандартный запрос "Открыть/Сохранить". Возможно дело в том, что он используется во внутренней сети организации, где частично ограничены внешние сервисы. Но гуглодокументы я использовать могу... Не знаю.
