How to use Chrome extensions in Firefox | Browsers

The Chrome Store Foxified add-on allows you to use extensions developed for Chrome in Firefox. This is possible due to Firefox Quantum, a project that seeks to make portability between platforms easier for developers. By adding the program to the Mozilla browser, the user can download several apps available in the Chrome Store and in the Opera store that, natively, are not compatible with the fox's browser. Check out below how to use Chrome extensions in Firefox.

Remember that there are a variety of extensions in the Firefox application store and it is recommended to use those developed for the browser. Add-ons downloaded through the Chrome Store Foxified do not receive automatic updates and, because they were designed for another app, do not take advantage of all the features provided by the browser. In addition, the feature does not work with some applications, such as those developed by Google.
