  • update please

  • I am developing a new filebrowser extension called Loomo compatible with current FF releases.

    Development is quite slow, so if anyone wants to contribute, then go ahead and help.

    https://github.com/FunkMonkey/Loomo

  • 为什么很长时间不更新了?这是个很好的插件。

  • I'll pick up development of this. I'm having a problem getting thee source,
    I installed TortoiseCVS,
    use pserver protocol
    server is mozdev.org
    repository /cvs
    username: guest

    and i get cvs [checkout aborted]: connect to mozdev.org:2401 failed: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

    can anyone help?

  • All we need is a way 2 run WINDOWS EXPLORER within firefox tabs. Not just the right pane information, but the entire thing - including individual 'explorer bar' (folder tree) within each tab - so cleans up the desktop =) Just a 'container' 4 all those crazy explorers strewn all over my desktop!

    We do not need a big program - just a way 2 stick all the explorers into seperate tabs, so we can use firefox 2 manage them instead of the Windows task bar & desktop.

  • I love the idea, and I really don't think it would take too much work to turn this into a functioning app. Are there any developers out there who'd like to pick up this seemingly abandoned project?

  • Would some benevolent soul please pick up this extension where the creator left off? I can do everything I need to within Firefox except browse files. I'd love to use Firefox as my primary interface. This extension has massive potential, and is one of the few I'd contribute money to.


    quote from a previous reviewer:
    "in a recent email conversation with the firefly creator he indicated that he was not working on firefly anymore at this time. He did not know if he would be getting back to updating this add on in the future. perhaps another writer could take this one over. it has great potential and should not be allowed to fall to the wayside.

  • No updates since last summer? Is firefly dead? I was so hoping that this would grow into a mature extension. Will V 1.0 release?

  • Didn't work at all. Just kept getting a blank page. It also took over my html filetype option so I could not view these files in firefox. I'll give it 2 stars for coollness factor and great idea.

  • Es muy buena, ojalá el explorador de windows fuera así. Lo más destacable son las previsualizaciones de imágenes al pasar el cursor por el nombre de archivo. Sin embargo con ella no puedo ver páginas web guardadas en mi computador. Aparece una pestaña con firefly, entonces debo desactivarla y reiniciar el navegador. Ojalá se arregle.

  • I So want to LOVE this add-on. Thanks to various extensions, in FireFox I have an embedded email client, embedded IM, embeded control of my music and video, an embedded image animation tool, embedded RSS feeds, embedded note-taking and scrapbooking, intelligent highlighting and citation tools, embedded in situ web editing tools, multiple tabs and tab groups for information and organisation and resource management, an embedded archive manager, an embedded multilingual spell checker. I can create custom buttons to perfom any action I like. I can create shortcuts to files and applications on my system. I can develop extensions and websites from within FireFox, search fro anything in any tab, see what time it is anywhere in the World, create PDFs, diarise, make lists of todos or events with reminders and alarms, share information with others anywhere in the World at the click of a button, create RRS feeds for sites that don't even have one ... I almost need never use another application ever again! ... One of the few things I *can't* do in FireFox is manage my file system effectively and efficiently. FireFly *should* let me do that. It would be *wonderful* if it did ... But it doesn't :( Even without any of my other ad-ons enabled, it behaves erratically ... frequently refusing to allow me to navigate back to where I cam from ... randomly changing directory ... even randomly opening and displacing other content in other tabs, without warning ... And I'm heartbroken about it ... I was SO excited when I discovered it ... (here was the answer to my problem) ... But I not only can't rely on it, it actually disrupts my workflow! ... I'm SO disappointed, I almost wish I'd never found it ... (at least then I wouldn't know what I'm missing)- Please, PLEASE fix it so that it can be all that it *could* be ... It's SUCH a fantastic idea and has SO much promise!

  • That can become still very interesting!

    Super: Unix rights. No consideration before a not functioning system.

    Super: for Linux and for Win. For people, still to change must very pleasantly.

    I like the Totalcommander and also the Midnigthcommander. Perhaps is a good tool, which knows such tools should.

    Do you look for testers?

  • Holy WOW! This is what Vista should have been!

  • I use this with "URL builder" to open local foldrs/files from my Google doc!
    in one of my Google Doc documents, I keep a lot of folder names in my local HD: 1) Use "URL Builder" to create a URL like "chrome://firefly/content/firefly.xul?path=c:", name this as "Firefly";
    2) Highlight the folder's name in the Google document, right click and select "Find Using...", then select "Firefly",
    the local folder will be displayed in Firefox.
    I have further setup which can then open the folder in Windows Explorer.

  • nice alternative... get ie tab and have it to use ie's engine when coing to c:\

  • I can tell that there's been a lot of work put into this, and it's an impressive product, but it's still not quite up to par. In particular I'd like to see bookmarks integration, a thumbnail view option as in Explorer, and especially a more customizable toolbar.

  • it worked when i first installed, then possibly crashed with other addons since i installed some addons at the same time (all-in-1 gesture, firegesture... to name). it didnt open directory when clicked. i tried disabling, reinstalling many times w/o success. really wanna keep it.
    P.S: I figured it out. The firefly own location bar has to be enable.
    Im looking for an integration like this for long but reluctant to use Konqueror. Footprint increase is good (10 addons, swiftweasel, from 36MB increase to 44MB) THis addon should deserve enormous attention. Someone should make a firefox version contender for Konqueror.

    You can turn that off from the options


    HOW??

    Developer response

    The option is in General pane and is called Follow file:// paths. This will turn off Firefly for any paths that start with file://

  • This extension has a very promising future. But, in its current state, it's not terribly hot. The idea of integrating file-browsing with web-browsing isn't particularly new -- as early as 1998, I could do that through Internet Explorer in Windows98. You can't presently do that, though, in Firefox for WindowsVista/XP. And that's a feature I miss badly. Throw in the promise of "tabbed-Mozilla-style" browsing, and you have a terrific idea on the horizon. However, at present, the user-friendliness of Firefly is somewhat mediocre. One thing I found particularly scary was that file deletions were automatically permanent rather than sent to the RecyclingBin.

  • I would like to see support for bookmarking files. Tagging would be nice too. Is there any possibility of integrating it with Firefox's native bookmark manager?

    Developer response

    There is always work to be done :)
    Bookmarking is in my todo list.

  • It sucks. How do I get this damn thing all of the way out? jealex2 gmail....

  • quite a pain. take over local html files viewing... uninstalled. I'll stick with the regular explorer.

    Quite a good idea though, I'll keep checking future releases.

  • This tool is great if you have memory limitations and don't want to add bloat to your system. It only uses 20M extra RAM, leaving me 302M free on my OpenBSD laptop running FVWM. I would recommend it to anyone running a desktop that does not have a native GUI file browser, or anyone who groans when their file manager starts up.

    Love- Ability to edit context menu entries to fit my environment needs. I can use my own icons as I see fit. Low memory footprint. Most features work with OpenBSD. Everything is easy to find, and what can be configured is configured easily.

    Hate- Not much since 0.4.1. All of my previous issues with filetypes being hardcoded and access to determining actions with file extensions was completely resolved in the next update from my last review.

    Overall rating- I love it, even with the minor flaws of having to use a context menu. The developer has done a very good job with this, and has been very responsive to user requests. For what it does, it does it well. Those who can run heavier file managers may not get the features that those managers provide, but I think that the intent of the author was to write something lightweight and configurable, and did a really fine job of that.

  • This may be a terrific extension, but when you go to uninstall it, it does not remove completely.

    Now I have these $%%$& Firefly toolbars that I cannot for the life of me figure out how to permanently remove.

    Developer response

    Sorry about this bug. But it turned out that it is actually a Firefox bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=411837). This weekend i will release version that will avoid that problem. As for removing the Firefly tab - right click on the tab and choose Customize, then manually remove the three separators that have remained there and the toolbar will dissapear.
