"A powerful in-browser FTP client."
FireFTP 1.99.7 is an open source, free, FTP/SFTP client that is specifically designed to integrate perfectly with theÂ Mozilla Firefox browser and provide ideal access to FTP and SFTP servers. The add-on lets you browse the Internet while downloading or uploading files to or from multiple servers simultaneously, and allows for up to sixteen synchronous transfers at a time. FireFTP is unique because it is actually integrated into the Tools menu of the Firefox browser.
Installing FireFTP is as simple as installing any other Firefox add-on, and can be done with literally four clicks of the mouse. However, it is important to note that you'll need to ensure your Mozilla Firefox browser is updated before attempting to install the latest version of FireFTP. You may also need to click the "allow" button at the top of your browser window if Firefox attempts to block FireFTP from installing.
The FireFTP interface is said to be similar to that of WS_FTP (one of the oldest FTP clients), being split into two main panes. The left pane displays the files and folders on your hard drive, and the right pane displays the files and folders contained on the FTP server you are connected to. Most of the functionality is “drag and drop,” and users have the option of storing multiple server login credentials in the Account Manager to expedite the process of logging into servers on a repetitive basis. The Account Manager can also be used to store other information related to your favorite servers, including default security/encryption settings.
