Open With Firefox How to Use Guide Image

Congratulations! Open With Firefox installed successfully for Google Chrome. Please follow below steps to set Open With Firefox to start using it.

You have successfully installed Open With Firefox add-on but you just need some easy steps to set things up before using Open With Firefox. Actually we create software which works out of box that does not require any additional step to use. Open With Firefox for Firefox works without any configuration and you can use it as soon as you install the add-on. But Google Chrome restricts extensions to access other programs installed on your computer for security reasons. Therefore you need to have a communicator software which needs to carry messages between Open With Firefox extension and Firefox itself. We are really sorry about this extra requirement for Google Chrome version of Open With Firefox, but this requirement is a necessity beyond our control. Anyway, required steps are not complicated and it can be done in only 15 seconds, fortunately.

1. Please download our communicator software to your computer by clicking the below download link. Please note that only Ubuntu Desktop with Unity, CentOS 7 GNOME and CentOS 7 KDE are tested and supported for Linux, as of now.

Download FF Communicator for Linux 32bit

Download FF Communicator for Linux 64bit

2. Extract the downloaded archive file. After extraction, cd into the extracted directory by Terminal.

3. Run ./FF.Communicator command in Terminal. Type your root password for administrative privileges. In a second or so, you will be welcomed by a success installation notification.

That is it. Now you can go any web page in Google Chrome and click on Open With Firefox toolbar button to send the very page to Firefox.

Open With Firefox is a new companion for Chrome users to send web pages to Mozilla Firefox with an easy and quick mouse click.
