FireFTP NOT Compatable with FF 57 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Mime Cuvalo, owner of FireFTP, posted the following statement on github (https://github.com/mimecuvalo/fireftp/issues/198) on May 9, 2017 about the "legacy" of FireFTP:
"Indeed, development on FireFTP is slowing down since Firefox is dropping support for it in version 57 later in the year. Hence, motivation for working on it isn't the highest currently. I'll probably be porting FireFTP at least to PaleMoon so that the extension survives. The link below is the main reason: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1247628
No sockets == no FTP :( "
After 13 years and 25 million downloads later, Firefox has officially removed FireFTP and FireSSH support from the browser. Thus, I've ended support / development of the addons. I recommend switching to Waterfox to continue using the addons.
PLEASE !!! Produce an update for FIREFOX 57 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have spend for this addon because it is the best for ssh handling in a browser. But now I need a version for FIREFOX 57.
I have tried ananother ssh client (sshgate) but this addon can't compare to yours .... yours is much better because very easy to handle. So , please, spend the time for an update.

Will there be a web extension available ?
Not Supported? Oh no! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Where have they said that FireFTP will not be supported for Firefox 57? This is bad news for sure. Thanks for the feedback on other choices.
Doesn't work on Firefox 57 Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Just a note to say that you can't even get into Settings for FireFTP on the latest Firefox Nightly. I imagine this will remain the case once Fx57 hits release in November and will actually not work at all as Firefox is ditching legacy extension and moving to Web extensions only.
Will FireFTP be updated to support? As it's not had any new development since January...
Work, but... Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It should have option not to directly open the FTP links by the program.
Many times I want to open the FTP links and not use the program.
And to make matters worse, to disable the program needs to reinitiate Firefox. This is horrible.
Great app, which even can work in preAustralis (FF<v28) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Although it is not recommendable, managing the compatibility checks(be careful) the last versions work fine in Firefox 27 or PM27.
Great app! Congrats!
It used to be a great add-on Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I connect to an ftp site as anonymous and start a download. FireFTP spontaneously aborts the connection. Then it keeps popping up with a login window on an endless loop. If I don't keep clicking on the cancel button it keeps trying to login which generates an error message from the ftp site I am trying to work with. In order to close the tab, I have to perform a rapid cancel in the pop up window and tab close. If I don't do it fast enough, I have to start over. This add on has become useless and it's a shame it used to be great. Software versions FireFTP 2.0.31 and Firefox 54.0 32 bit

Vamos bien con el UX Thumbs Up
Need to repair this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I second the problem with forced automatic starts. It essentially makes this add-on unusable.
"Configure FTP links in Firefox to automatically use FireFTP" is the missing option and it needs to be reinstated before I can use anything higher than 2.0.28.
Windows can't be adjusted properly Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Used to be good, now I'm using FireFox 53.0 on Win 8.1 and I can't adjust the window sizes in any sensible way. Dragging the bar at the bottom of the file window moves in the opposite direction to the way you're dragging and can't enlarge the listing. Dragging window corners only adjusts width. My file directories are only 4 lines max, the log/queue is one line... yes, one line high and the rest of the application window is occupied by a venetian blind effect with one line of information about 21 slats down. Move the bottom edge of the window and it disappears off the screen. Unusable - almost totally useless like this.
2.0.31 is a show stopper... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Since 2.0.31, when you click on a ftp-served web page, FireFTP automatically open. Moreover, if you happen to open a file link instead of a directory link (ex: an html or pdf file), FireFTP open and pop up a dialog. So, if you have a web page that happen to be on an FTP (instead of HTTP) server, then you will not view the page in the browser, but FireFTP instead start. There used to have an option to 'automatically start FireFTP when you click on an FTP link', which was OFF by default. Now the option is gone, and is hardcoded ON.
The author claims that this have to do with a FF update, but I downgraded to 2.0.28 and it work fine viewing web pages like I did for the last few years.
Still one of the easiest to use FTP browser, don't get me wrong here... But that issue for me is a show stopper as the only way to view those Web pages easily are to use another browser, or disable FireFTP. But that's not until you get burned by FireFTP trying to connect and having a useless dialog popping up in your face... (however, as said, downgrading to 2.0.28 does work fine, so I would suggest this until FireFTP get this fixed).
Laufend Scriptfehler Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Firefox 52.0.2 64 Bit
Seit einigen Tagen kommen beim Verbinden zum Server laufend Scriptfehler, ein Verbinden zum FTP-Server ist nicht mehr möglich.
Bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt als dieser Fehler auftrat war das Add on sehr gut und einfach zu bedienen.
FireFtp cause FireFox Crash Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Since January, my Firefox stopped to access any website, I tried to reinstall it but still the same problem.
Recently, I reinstall it after delete all related data, and it worked well, until I install FireFTP, and the problem reappears.
When I try to access any website, I get this error message "Gah. Your tab just crashed."
Everything returns to work fine after I disable FireFTP.
Please try to fix it as soon as possible, I don't want to use any another FTP client.
Error while uploading Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Since the January update, I'm getting a "426 Data Connection: Connection reset by peer." when starting an upload. Before that update, I was able to upload to this specific FTP-server. With e.g. Filezilla I'm still able to upload to it. The debug-log doesn't show anything useful when the error occurs.

Problems in the latest Firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars
FireFTP (I have 2.0.29) is still working but getting an error message on drag and drop which is fixed in a later release. Unfortunately the latest release is marked as incompatible with Firefox 50. Hope this gets resolved soon, FireFTP is a really good FTP extension.
Firefox 50.0.1 was saying it was up to date (in About Firefox). Went to FF website and got the latest (51) and all is now ok.
Please upgrade to 2.0.31 and Firefox 51 and that'll fix the issue.
