Turn your Firefox into Windows File Manager with Firefly

Firefly is a Firefox browser extension, which once installed, lets you browse your files as you would on Windows Explorer or Konqueror. Copy your files from one directory to another. Split the view to 2,3,4… as many panes as you like. Easily preview Audio/Video, Documents,PDF and image files. View Mozilla engine and IE‘s engine output head to head. xSidebar is required for Seamonkey.


  • Multiplatform – Windows and Linux are supported, waiting input from a Mac user because i have no way of testing it there.
  • Four different view types for the file browser (details,list,tiles,thumbnails).
  • Ability to split the view as many times as you like.
  • Ability to expand the selected view for more confortable work.
  • Integrated Mozilla and IE engines (requires IETab to be installed).
  • Integrated Audio/Video, Document, PDF, Image preview (requires VLC,OpenOffice, Acrobat reader plugins to be installed).
  • Audio/Video, Image preview in the tooltip (again VLC plugin is required).
  • Filter current view – you can use regular expressions or just plain wildcards (changed in preferences).
  • Search in the current folder and subfolders.
  • Copy/Paste,Cut/Paste files and folders (currently Cut is doing the same as Copy – as soon as i receive enough user input that everything is working 100% correct i’ll fix Cut to really do cut).
  • Delete files and folders (delete asks only once if you are sure – after that you can’t stop it – so be carefull).
  • Transferring files allows to pause/cancel/resume the transfer. If the files exists in the destination you will be asked if you want to resume(file size must be smaller), overwrite or rename the file.
  • Keyboard navigation in the views and between views.
  • Multiple languages (currently en,bg available).
  • Tree can be set up to show only what you like and the order in which you like to see it.
  • “Send to” and “Open with” menus are customizable too.
  • External editor setup – configure which text exitor to use in the preferences and just press F3 (or use the contex menu) and the currently selected file will be opened in that editor.
