How do I view an FTP site in Windows Explorer for drag and drop file upload in Firefox?


In Internet Explorer you have the drop-down menu option called "Page" (located below the address bar, on the right-hand side). In the options listed you can "Open FTP side in Windows Explorer".

I cannot seem to locate a similar option within Firefox 4.0.

Guidance and suggestions welcome. Thanks.
