How to Open a PDF, Ebook, Zip/Rar Archive, or Virtually Any File Just Using Firefox

Do you love Firefox and free coffee? Then visiting the Firefox booth at Mobile World Congress earlier this week in Spain was your opportunity to discuss the latest mobile trends, Firefox OS, $25 smartphones while sipping coffee and hanging with Mozillians.

Of course, Firefox is not as popular as Chrome, and while offering browser-based apps mostly for iPad (Safari), Chromebook (Chrome) and desktop (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) users, we at rollApp has developed a special add-on for the Firefox community. The extension is called rollApp File Opener and, at this time, it’s installed on 35K computers. 

Open 500+ file types with Firefox. Anywhere. Anytime.

The latest version of the add-on opens 500 type of files including archives, documents, PDFs, ebooks, and graphics. 

How It Works 

Our File Opener allows you to customize your Firefox browser for viewing virtually any file that you might find while surfing the web. Moreover, the add-on is also integrated with your Dropbox cloud storage so you can improve your productivity and daily work flow by previewing, editing and saving the files you need right in the browser:   
  • Install the extension, hover the mouse over a link to a file you want to preview and click Open. Alternatively, open any files on the web by using Context Menu.
  • Open and edit any files in your cloud storage and sync them across all your devices.
  • Perfect for any desktop operating system.
Let us know how it works for you!
