I frequently use the SQLite Manager plugin of Firefox for playing around with a light weight database file I've. The problem with this is, whenever I have to open the SQLite Manager, I need to first open Firefox and then open the plugin from it which is quite annoying at times, as I never intend to use Firefox at all.

So is there a way I can create a shortcut for the SQLite Manager firefox plugin on my desktop to directly start it without having to open Firefox first?


See this suggestion. I tried it and it works.

Simply make a new desktop shortcut to Firefox, with this as the target.

firefox -chrome chrome://sqlitemanager/content/sqlitemanager.xul
  • It worked like a charm. Thanks :) But I don't get one thing. Why do we use chrome for it? – SudoRahul Apr 25 '14 at 15:42

    I wondered that too. Apparently it's a Mozilla thing, no relation to Google Chrome. See Chrome. – Adam Apr 25 '14 at 16:43
