View ODFs in Firefox

Among the many programs that can display ODF files, you can add Firefox to the list. (Though I’m not sure this is fair, since we’re actually relying on OOo in the background with the following trick.)

Mozilla Links explains how to “view documents in Firefox.”

It’s pretty easy, in fact: “you need to activate the plugin. To do so, in, select Options… in the Tools menu. Expand the Internet item, select Mozilla Plug-in and check Enable.”

Once you have set this option, you can click on a link to an ODF in your browser (with .odt, .ods, .odg, and .odp or the other extensions) to simply open it within your browser window for viewing.
