The extension supports (at least) Firefox, Firefox Nightly and Firefox Developer Edition.

  2. Run ffass in Alfred and choose Install Firefox Extension to get the Firefox extension.

See the setup documentation for more details.

Usage

The basic usage is:

  • bm <query> — Search bookmarks
  • bml <query> — Search bookmarklets
  • hist <query> — Search history
  • dl [<query>] — Search downloads
  • tab [<query>] — Search tabs
  • ffass [<query>] — Workflow status and links

See the usage documentation for full details.

Integration

The workflow can be used by other workflows to retrieve the title and URL of the active Firefox tab (in lieu of AppleScript, which Firefox doesn’t support). See the integration docs for details.
