[Last updated in 2023: Note added on using Save to Koofr Firefox Add-on in other browsers].
Sometimes, while browsing the web, we want to quickly save photos or interesting texts and view them later. Sure, there are plenty of ways to do that, but Koofr offers a simple solution for Mozilla Firefox users which can now do that through our easy to use Save to Koofr Firefox Add-on.
Note: Save to Koofr Firefox Add-on also works with Edge and Librewolf browser.
Why do it with Koofr? Because all of the files you save this way are accessible from anywhere through the Koofr applications. Let's have a quick look at how Save to Koofr works.
• Create your free Koofr account here if you don't have one yet
• Install our Save to Koofr add-on from the official Firefox Add-ons store by clicking Add to Firefox
• Once you see a pop-up you will have to click on Add to give Koofr the needed permissions
• After a successful install, you will notice the Koofr icon in the Firefox toolbar (in the top right corner of your browser)
• You will now have a new option called Save to Koofr in the right-click menu, which will show up whenever you right-click on a picture, video, selected text or a link to a file in your browser
Let's take a closer look at which options you have for different types of files:
(1) Picture or video files
The Save this to Koofr option will save the selected picture or video to Koofr in the background while you browse. The Save screenshot to Koofr will make a screenshot of the web page you currently have open in your browser and save the screenshot to Koofr.
While Save the largest image to Koofr will save the largest image or video on the webpage you have open in your browser to Koofr.
(2) Text selection
Where text is concerned, you will see an option - Save selected to Koofr. This will allow you to select a part of a text from a webpage. Clicking on Save selected to Koofr will create a new text file (.txt) in your Koofr account which will be named after the webpage title and will contain both the original page URL and the selected text. This is especially useful when doing research for a thesis or a work project, where you have to collect information from various articles and sources.
(3) Link to a file
Whenever you choose Save to Koofr on a link which points to a file (like an MS Office document or a PDF file, for example), the target file will be automatically saved to your Koofr account. If you click Save to Koofr on a web link which points to a webpage, the webpage will be saved to your Koofr account.
That's it. Simple right?
But wait, where do all of these saved files go?
Everything saved through our Firefox add-on will end up in an automatically created folder in your Koofr account, named Save to Koofr. In case you use both, Save to Koofr for Google Chrome and Save to Koofr for Mozilla Firefox, all of the files you save in both browsers will be waiting for you in the same Save to Koofr folder in your Koofr account. You can read more about the Google Chrome extension in our blog.
PS: If a friend has shared files with you through a Koofr link and you would like to save them into your Koofr account you can save them with one click with Save to Koofr option in the Download menu. The files will wait for you in your Save to Koofr folder in your account.
