1) How can I move the icon to menu? The icon puts itself on the far right side of the main toolbar and can neither be dragged around. You answered that the icon can be moved around in the "edit toolbars" mode of the browser. View -> Toolbars -> Customize ..." But it doesn't work for me, icon is fixed in its position
2) This is could be a Firefox App in marketplace.firefox.com more than a Firefox Extension. Yes its true that as you suggested Fire Commander can run in a standalone window (or as a xulrunner app via "firefox -app /path/to/firecommander/application.ini); But It makes better sense as an App.
I'd like to have a simple file commander that provides the simple and most-used functions and interface of Norton Commander; this is almost there (but not quite). Since this is a XUL package for Mozilla, I'd rather it use the browser as the viewer and editor (CodeMirror at the moment).
I like minimalistic software, so this is right up my street... Thanks a lot to the creator! There's only two issues: 1) The icon puts itself on the far right side of the main toolbar and can neither be dragged around (although it's possible to drag the other icons *around* it) or removed altogether. Note: I have plenty of other addons installed, so this might be the result of addons clashing. 2) There seems to be no option to change the keyboard shortcut ALT+C, which is may already be used depending on the Firefox interface language (e.g., it's used for browsing history in German Firefox). Other than that, great add-on.

2) I suggest running Fire Commander in a standalone window (or as a xulrunner app via "firefox -app /path/to/firecommander/application.ini); this way, its keyboard shortcuts won't interfere with Browser's shortcuts. Alt + drive letter is an industry standard for drive-change operation in Windows two-pane file managers...
i am using Total Commander on my Windows System. so compared to what i use daily Fire Commander is very basic :-) hey thats great for all places where i cant install Total Commander!! ;-) there seems to be some small displaying issures on Windows 7 64bit. but the basic thinks i tried out are working well.
will there be a next version / updates ?? this thing has high capability to develop to a real cool addon!! I have some cool ideas - will post them on the Roadmap page (http://code.google.com/p/firecommander/wiki/Roadmap)
► @Kactus: I LOVE IT when people like you go to write a review, acting like you are somehow a professional or knowledgeable, when you have ZER0 knowledge or experience on the very subject you are posting on!!
This ADD-ON's entire purpose, is to allow people to manage LOCAL FILES, on any platform and without eating up more resources by opening a separate process!!
I installed this extension just out of curiosity but I was surprised by the amount of features Fire Commander has. It probably won't replace my commander of choice but it's a great multiplatform alternative to already existing file managers.
