    Default Open current page in firefox

    I'm searching how I could open the current page in Firefox from within Google chrome .
    Does somebody knows a way to do this? An extension or a bookmarklet ?
    Each search leads to the opposite, opening in chrome from within Firefox.

    Of course, why would you want the opposite anyway?

    - chrome crashes when right clicking a misspelled word when filling a form
    - chrome doesn't have an easy way to get extras,plugins. Ex: translating a selected text,...
    There are bookmarklets (which are easy) but most of them don't work
    - No google toolbar, just some workarounds which aren't user friendly
    - Sites that won't open
    -...

    You need more ?

    If you have all this trouble, why even bother with Chrome then?
    Just continue with the Fox.
    You might to have a look at your config/system in general because I don't have all these problems. Aside from then Google toolbar of course, witch I don't need.

    In Chrome, drag the star (Address bar) to (Already open) Firefox and it will open in Firefox.
    It works both ways, drag the Firefox Address bar icon to Chrome.

    I'll try later. For now I can't get my Chrome in dev version. I think my proxy does not allow it.
    Thanks for the tip.
