Is it possible to browse my network with Firefox? This can be done with Windows Explorer, but perhaps it can be done with Firefox, possibly with an existing add-on?

Update: Windows Explorer can show me workstations and servers in my network. This is what I'm mainly looking to get with Firefox.

What do you mean when you say my Network? –  Oliver Salzburg Jun 11 '12 at 10:23
    
The network my computer is connection to, formerly known as My Network Places or Network Neighborhood. –  newenglander Jun 11 '12 at 11:19

It's a little different from IE.

ahh, but does this work for smb file shares, or just webpages on a windows network? –  Journeyman Geek Jun 11 '12 at 11:10
    
Yes it works fine in smb files shares. In my work network i use it all the time. –  Kalatzis Stefanos Jun 11 '12 at 11:15
    
@Kalatzis: Thanks, but tried this already, unfortunately it didn't work for me. Plus, in Windows Explorer I can see a list of the computers in my network--this is what I'm primarily after. –  newenglander Jun 11 '12 at 11:21

I can't add a photo but in this print screen you can see that it work fine. dl.dropbox.com/u/77338852/… –  Kalatzis Stefanos Jun 11 '12 at 11:24
    
@Kalatzis: Thanks again, that does indeed work, as long as I give a directory. If I don't or click on Up to higher level directory to get to the root directory, it doesn't do anything. –  newenglander Jun 11 '12 at 11:48
