"Open in Firefox" extension opens the current tab or links inside the current tab in the Firefox browser from the right-click context menu, toolbar button, or even left-clicking on a link with and without a modifier. This extension eases the link transferring between the different browsers. There is no need to copy a link from one browser to the OS clipboard and paste it into another browser.

Open a specific URL in Firefox
Open all URLs with a specific keyword in Firefox
Close the tab when a link is transferred (Optional)
Do not block left-click action when a link is transferred (Optional)
Support managed storage to configure the extension from the administration panel

If a Firefox browser is opened, the extension opens the link in a new browser tab. If no open instance of the Firefox browser is detected, a new Firefox window is opened.

Using this extension, you can define custom URLs or hostnames to be directly sent to the Firefox browser from the options page. Also, it is possible to close the source tab when the link transfer is successful. This way for instance you can view a particular host in the Firefox browser, although Chrome is your main browser.

Risk impact

Open in Firefox requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Open in Firefox has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

התקנה קצת מסורבלת אבל זה עובד פיקס! צריך להוריד את הקובץ שמופיע בדף לאחר שמנסים ללחוץ על הכפתור בפעם הראשונה.. ואז צריך לחלץ את הקובץ למקום כל שהוא [תזכרו לאן חילצתם] ואז צריך להיכנס לתיקיה המחולצת וללחוץ על קובץ בשם "install.bat" הוא ישלח 2 קבצים אל תקיית הדפדפן על מנת שהוא יוכל להיות בתקשורת איתו.. יתחיל לרוץ טקסטים בתוך חלון שחור, ובשלב מסויים הם יפסיקו לרוץ, הוא יבקש ממכם ללחוץ על מקש כל שהוא, ולאחר שתלחצו על מקש כל שהוא החלון השחור יסגר. וזהו כעת בלחיצה אחת יתבצע מעבר של הלשונית הנוכחית מדפדפן כרום לדפדפן פיירפוקס. אותו תוסף ניתן להתקנה גם בפיירפוקס וכך ניתן להעביר לשוניות בין הדפדפנים. הקובץ נבדק באמצעות AVAST ולא נמצא בו וירוסים. תהנו :)
