  1. Firefox shortcuts

    Hello

    I'm searching how to create in Firefox 3 a button or menu or link, other,
    able to open one Windows's directory in Windows explorer
    This would be very accurate to share access to IE Favorite's directory.

    This is possible in IE by creating in favorite's directory a shortcut to
    another directory.
    But in Firefox, Favorites are in a file named bookmark.htm which cannot
    contains shortcuts (file://*** not available).

    This was possible in Firefox old versions, but I don't find for FF3.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Take a look at the "Launchy" extension https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/81

    It will allow you to open a web page in another browser on your
    Windows systems. Also to open an image in an image application
    and so forth. To open the directory you might knock the filename off
    and let Firefox open the directory and then use Launchy to open the
    directory (on your system) with Explorer. Actual you will open the
    directory in Firefox, then open the directory in Internet Explorer which
    really doesn't but passes it to Explorer.

    I include a change in my own use that would pass the directory entry
    or any type of file directly to it's default application, something like:


    1
    c:\ winnt\explorer.exe



    You can see my changes, comments, and a separate page that you may
    find helpful in addition to Henrik Gemal's pages.

    http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/firef...#launchy_notes
    http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/firefox/launchy.htm

    As far as Internet Explorer Favorites goes, I think they can be accessed
    directly from Windows desktop, Start or Quick Launch. But you would
    not be able to use them directly in Firefox.

    So for more information someone else would probably have to answer,
    but you would have to describe more in terms of what you want to
    accomplish rather than how you think or know it works in IE.

    You can certainly have a bookmark to a file in Firefox, though
    I doubt that you can do what you say in the manner you suggest,
    but file:///c:/myfiles/d/filename.txt note 3 slashes after file:

    Use of bookmarks were a big change in Firefox 3, and
    you are going to have a big change in Internet Explorer 8 because
    it was an admitted mistake in using directories in the first place.

    is IE8 going to lump all the favorites in one file just like FF and Opera?

    Shortcuts ".url" in a directory will be probably still operationnal with
    IE8.

    Like now with Firefox, if FF is default Internet browser.

    It is probably the simplest solution !
    One click displays directory containing shortcuts ".url" .. + same type
    other subdirectories
    The second click on one shortcut launches Firefox if Firefox is the default
    Internet browser.

    Really couldn't say, but they copied the actions of the Personal
    Bookmarks toolbar pretty well. Still, MS likes space-wasting tiny files
    so much, that they will probably keep each one in a file.

    still figuring out how to create the xml file and add Firefox to it;
    and where to put the file;
    and how to edit the preferences since I am using both Maxthon and Maxthon2

    Wrong direction. You invoke Launchy from within Firefox, and if Maxthon is a registered
    browser you probably don't need a launchy.xml file just to open Maxthon to the same
    page as you are viewing in Firefox. I provided several links to documentation that would
    lead to additional documentation links.

    I am not sure whether Opera or Safari only recognise bookmarks ending in .html

    I got Launchy installed but I got Maxthon and Maxthon2 installed; it doesn't see
    Maxthon2 and both are installed on different directories

    guess maybe an email to the author would help; requesting that he includes Max2
    even though he doesn't use it.

    Well, I have had it installed on all three of my machines for a while,
    and it is MORE stable than IE6 or IE7, and MUCH improved, especially in
    the user interface area. Copies FF bookmarks toolbar, and discourages
    ActiveX use, as well as other improvements to the security aspect.
    Worth the change, just for that.

    If you do, it doesn't pick up Safari either.

    is this the location where I place the launchy.xml ?

    C:\Documents and Settings\name\Application
    Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\12345678.default

    or here

    C:\Documents and Settings\name\Application
    Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\12345678.default\chrome

    This is Firefox extension as I know it , so the equivalent would
    be the chrome directory of Thunderbird. I don't use Thunderbird
    guess that means installing it twice, once for TB and once for FF..

    Here is the Thunderbird version
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/81

    Same homepage as for Firefox installation
