Have successfully transitioned to the new version with the external Python helper application (on ubuntu, a version of python was already previously installed). For the previous version, I had "browsers" (actually custom scripts) specified by command line, and the UI for the new version made it relatively painless to re-create them. The biggest frustration was that browsers configured under the old version aren't automatically imported into the new version upon upgrade - and in my first attempt to set a browser up, I got my entry for the "name" and the "command" field the wrong way round - but after correcting that mistake, it worked first time.
- by Firefox user 16748986, 9 months agoRated 5 out of 5I kept checking back to the reviews in hopes of more info on the installation of "open with", and there it was. I put open_with_windows.py in my Windows\system32......opened a command prompt, which opened in the Windows\system32 folder, and ran the open_with_windows.py install, and that was it for me. I ran test installation in my Browser and Thunderbird, and it showed, "Found version 7.2.3 at C:\Windows\System32\open_with_windows.py." I then edited the order of my four Browsers, with Firefox on top.
Thanks to all the reviews with the help, and thanks to the the Author of this addon!!
- by Cosmic_Annihilation, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Amazing addon! I'm only missing the ability to select multiple tabs and open them on the chosen browser, instead of doing it manually for each tab! There's an open issue on the github repo asking for this already, just in case other users would like to show their interest on this feature.
- by Firefox user 16179708, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Sorry, this add-on has served me well in the past, but now it completely stopped working on Firefox (clicking the browser icons does nothing, and sometimes it the menu also displays the message "Open With can't connect to the outside world"). I of course would prefer to get support fixing this rather than leaving a low rating, but there doesn't seem to be any realistic way to request help.
