« My HTML Editor is BlueGriffon, an intuitive, modern and robust application.
I like that what I see is what I get on the Web. »
Jeff Jaffe, CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)

  1. This Mozilla Firefox add-on gives you a very capable FTP/SFTP client right within your browser. It’s available on all platforms that can run Firefox. Available on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. Classic FTP is a file transfer client that’s free for non-commercial use.
  2. FireFTP is a free, open-source, cross-platform FTP client for Mozilla Firefox in the shape of an add-on. It supports FTP, FTPS, and SFTP. FireFTP is charityware and runs on programs that Firefox supports. FireFTP's design is similar to that of WS FTP.

Fireftp Setup


Please file all bugs, suggestions and requests in our Bugzilla.

Product is 'BlueGriffon', please write in english.


  1. Can I pay in US$ or another currency than Euros ?

    PayPal will automatically convert our prices in Euros to a price in the currency your PayPal account is using.

  2. What's SendOwl?

    They're our Shopping Basket processor.

    By the way, SendOwnl never sees your Credit Card information when you purchase from us. We don't see them either, of course. The payment is processed by Stripe or Paypal. We only deal with the shopping basket, through SendOwl.

  3. What are the 'Taxes' I see when I order the product?

    It's VAT and it's only added to purchases made by european individuals and companies. That's absolutely mandatory, since we're also based in Europe. Nothing we can do about it, sorry.

    It does not apply to customers outside of the European Union.

    Since the 1st of January 2015, European VAT is based on the location of the buyer, not the seller's. That's why the VAT rate applied to our products for two customers based in two different european countries can differ. That's a EU Directive and there's nothing we can do about it. That's also why we don't show the price with VAT before you select your country of residence during checkout...

  4. I purchased a license and all I got is a link to the User's Manual, a license key and a transaction ID, no software ?

    That's totally normal. BlueGriffon® is a free download. Install it and enter your license information through the Preferences panel to enable the commercial features.

  5. What happened to the Add-ons? What happens if I still use a version of BlueGriffon with add-ons?

    Our previous line of add-ons was discontinued and add-ons made for versions of BlueGriffon older than 2.0 will NOT work with this version 3.1... It is then HIGHLY recommended to delete your pre-2.0 profile that is in ~/Library/Application Support/BlueGriffon on OSX, AppData/Roaming/Disruptive Innovations SARL on Windows and ~/.disruptive innovations sarl on Linux) OR, even better, create another profile (see the User's Manual).

  6. I lost my license key and/or transaction ID or I can't activate my license, can you help ?

    Yes. Please contact us by email and be ready to answer some questions before we send you back your credentials. If you could provide us with your Transaction ID, that will save some time and emails.

  7. What's the difference between BlueGriffon and BlueGriffon EPUB Edition?

    The Web editor and the EPUB editor used to be two different products. We merged the two products into one starting with version 2.2.

  8. How will you notify us about future versions?

    BlueGriffon® makes a very simple call home when you launch it to check if a new version is available. An alert will show up if that's the case. You can tweak this behavior in the Updates section of the Preferences panel.

  9. What's your Privacy Policy about that call?

    Let's state it very clearly: the only data we store about BlueGriffon® and coming from you (besides your purchase order itself) are of two kinds:

    1. When the application activates or verifies a license, it sends us your license information and an application ID. Nothing more. We don't store these calls at all. Never.
    2. When it checks if a new version is available, it sends us the date of the request, the version of BlueGriffon you're currently using and the appID mentioned just above. We store only the date and the version number. Absolutely nothing more. We do not aggregate these data with our license database. And we do that only for global statistics.

    We do not store and will never store your IP address or even the operating system you're using, BlueGriffon does not transmit and will never transmit your identity, language, information about the documents you're creating/editing, etc..

    Be sure we care as much about privacy as you do.

  10. Who are you ?

    BlueGriffon® is a product of Disruptive Innovations SAS, a French software company founded in October 2003. Based in Saint-Germain en Laye, France, Disruptive Innovations SAS delivered in the past premium products like the popular editor Nvu ( to Linspire Inc., its indirect successor the BlueGriffon Web editor ( and BlueGriffon EPUB Edition (, or the XML editor Etna to the Connexions Project (
