Open current page, link, or all tabs in the Firefox browser with a left-click or through right-click context menu.
The "Open in Firefox" extension simplifies opening the current tab or links within the current tab in the Firefox browser. This functionality can be initiated via the right-click context menu, a toolbar button, or left-clicking on a link with or without a modifier key. This extension streamlines link transfer between different web browsers, eliminating the need to copy a link from one browser, paste it into the OS clipboard, and then paste it into another browser.
- Open a website's hostname directly in Firefox.
- Open a specific URL in Firefox.
- Launch all URLs containing a specific keyword in Firefox.
- Optionally close the current tab after transferring a link.
- Optionally, do not block the left-click action when transferring a link.
- Support for managed storage, allowing administrators to configure extension settings.
- Support for user-defined JS script to decide whether the link should be blocked and passed to the Firefox browser or not
When the extension detects an open instance of the Firefox browser, it opens the link in a new browser tab. If no open Firefox instance is found, it initiates a new Firefox window.
You can customize URLs or hostnames to be automatically redirected to Firefox from the options page. You also have the option to close the source tab once the link transfer is completed. This allows you to view a specific website in Firefox, even if Chrome is your primary browser.
