What happened to FireFTP?

Posted

I am currently running Firefox Version 60.6.1esr. I've always used FireFTP to transfer large files. However, I entered FireFTP in the addon search and it isn't found. I then searched on Mozilla website and no results. When did FireFTP disappear and where did it go? Is it no longer available to add to Firefox? LERapp

Chosen solution

FireFTP was a Legacy Extension and will not work in Firefox 57.0 and later including the Firefox 60 ESR.

The Legacy extensions for Firefox have have removed from addons.mozilla.org/firefox/ some months ago at end of November.

FireFTP is still listed for SeaMonkey however as you see in versions information is is for Firefox 56.0.* and earlier.

I do not recommend using a old vulnerable version just for one Extension.

There are FTP clients you can use including the long running opensource FileZilla (no relation to Mozilla) FTP client.

Thanks James, I appreciate your information. I can quit looking for it now and will search for another FTP app such as your suggested FileZilla. Thanks again, LER
