Firefox Tip: Use Firefox instead of Windows Explorer to browse folders on your computer

Drag a folder from your PC to Firefox - either to a new tab or an open tab:  It's quicker than Explorer and easier on the eyes.

Firefox displays the folders, files - and all the details automatically.  It's faster than Explorer, and saves you sometimes as much as several clicks.

You can browse up the hierarchy to a higher level folder; you can also use the back and forward buttons on the browser; you can drill down by clicking on subfolders. Try it: you'll like it!  It's quick and easy. (Works in Mac's Firefox, too.)
