Where do I find the Fire FTP add-on once I've loaded it, and how can I put the icon in my browser's toolbar?

This process was drag-and-drop on my Mac, but I can't find anything like that process for Fire FTP on my PC's Firefox browser.

You should be able to click on the menu icon, then click customize, then drag the fireftp button from the list of buttons to wherever you want it.

I have had some issues with buttons not appearing after installing addons recently, though. If this is the case, you can directly type chrome://content/fireftp/fireftp.xul into the address bar to access the fireftp interface.

hi gpb0216, in order to adjust the toolbar icons, please refer to this article: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars

Thank you for your response, but it didn't help. I'll try again. I think I have added Fire FTP to the browser environment. I say "I think" because everything appears to have worked (no error messages, browser restarted successfully), but I cannot find a link to the add-on anywhere. Here are my two questions: 1. Where can I access Fire FTP when using my PC (not my Mac - the Mac's interface with this add-on is flawless)? 2. Where is the icon for this add-on, and how do I add it to the toolbar on the PC? (Again, the Mac works effortlessly in this regard)

Thank you! Patrick Bryant

You can check for it on these menus:

  • "3-bar" menu button > Developer
  • (menu bar, tap Alt to display if needed) Tools > Web Developer

If there's no sign of it, make sure it's Enabled on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions. Then, on the right side, if it's enabled it will appear in alphabetical order with the others. If disabled, look for it at the bottom on a gray background.

Any luck?

Sorry, correct address is chrome://fireftp/content/fireftp.xul
