Version 7.1 315.9 KiB Works with Firefox 57.0 and later

This version fixes a whole bunch of bugs, updates most translations, and adds four translations (German, Russian, Swedish, and Simplified Chinese).

You can now choose which context menus you want Open With to appear on, and you can assign keyboard shortcuts to browsers.

Open With now asks permission to "Download files and read and modify the browser's download history". This is used only to help you install the extra file needed for Open With to run. No reading or modifying of the download history occurs!

Version 6.6 120.8 KiB Works with Firefox 45.0 - 48.0a1

This version fixes a bunch of bugs and fixes a long-standing problem - communicating with a second instance of Firefox. If you have Open With 6.6 installed in multiple running profiles, they will now talk to each other instead of trying to start a new operating system process, so you should no longer see the "Firefox is already running" message.

I'm also trialling a new donations page, instead of the addons.mozilla.org one. You'll now be able to give using a currency of your choice - AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY, NZD and USD at the moment.
