Simple, elegant, works. A fine example to all programmers. Contratulations
This is by far the most useful and reliable Firefox Add-on I've tried in the past year or so. I've been using FireFTP for quite a few months and it's so easy and handy that I uninstalled the FTP software I had purchased before finding FireFTP. Top of the line!
I really like this add-on, especially the new icon update, it looks much nicer.
I'm not sure if it has been fixed, but it seems to have a slight mem-leak, once i left it on for 48hrs, came back to my computer and it was CRAWLING, I checked the task manager and it appeared to be firefox, I closed the FireFTP tab, and everything was back to normal...
All in all: Great FTP, if you don't leave it open for more than a couple hours :p.
This is a very well done, and genuinely useful extension. I am currently using fireftp as my main ftp program, to upload/download to about 20-30 different servers. Some areas for improvement would be the ability to export/import entries with passwords, and a tree-like structure to organize sites. I just updated to the newest version of fireftp, and it wiped out all my saved passwords. Also, since I have about 200-300 entries in the drop-down menu, it becomes difficult to organize by site. The ability to create directories would be very useful. Thank you for contributing such a great extension to the community, it's one of my favorites.
This is the one extension that I have always had installed for the last year or more, most I install for a time, then remove. But I never have removed this one.
I have tried various other FTP programs before I started useing this and several since. But non have matched this extension for usability and convenience. The local and remote folder views, and the directory diff in the latest version the allows for checking the files by the date they were modified. Testing many files before I upload them I can see this being used all the time. And there is so many other things I could say about it.
Keep it up !
*insert happy dance here*
Yay! I'm glad this has been brought back for FF3. I can't say enough good things about this FTP client. Works as well as any other FTP client I've used for what I do at work. Thanks for bringing it back!
Just registered to comment. FireFTP is my favorite Add-on. Having the same problem with newest version as reviewer Andy. Files not showing up in Remote window. (didn't even try to upload) Reverted to previous version and works fine.
As someone already indicated, the most recent version of FireFTP is giving me problems...for most of my domains it is not showing anything in FireFTP (when I log in), others I get errors with...for now I will downgrade to the last version. Overall FireFTP is GREAT!
Problem with reviewing remote files fixed in version .95.2.
This is a GREAT program. And price is right. You ought to donate just because of the work involved in developing and updating it. Mimi also good at fixing errors. He is very responsive to e-mails reporting bugs. Can't sing his praises too much. Thanks for a GREAT program!!!!
This is the perfect "application" type add-on for Firefox for me. I usually like to keep my applications separate (ie Firefox and Thunderbird vs.. whatever Mozilla is called now), but when FTPing 99% of my FTPing is uploading changes to websites, in which case I'd have my browser open anyway to check the changes. I haven't used it extensively, but so far so good, very very useful.
