Is it possible to have FireFox open a site in Windows Explorer?


I work for a company that provides a FTP site for clients to upload files. I would like to give them the instructions on how to have Fire Fox open the site in Windows Explorer so that they can drag and drop the files.

First, you really need to update your Firefox. You are running a version that is over a year old and very vulnerable to many security holes. Update Firefox to the latest version. After that, I would try to look at Firefox Add-ons, addons.mozilla.org
