Send

A fork of Mozilla's Firefox Send. Mozilla discontinued Send, this fork is a community effort to keep the project up-to-date and alive.

  • Forked at Mozilla's last publicly hosted version
  • Mozilla & Firefox branding is removed so you can legally self-host
  • Kept compatible with ffsend (CLI for Send)
  • Dependencies have been updated
  • Mozilla's changes since the fork have been selectively merged
  • Mozilla's experimental report feature, download tokens, trust warnings and FxA changes are not included

Find an up-to-date Docker image here: docs/docker.md

The original project by Mozilla can be found here. The mozilla-master branch holds the master branch as left by Mozilla. The send-v3 branch holds the commit tree of Mozilla's last publicly hosted version, which this fork is based on. The send-v4 branch holds the commit tree of Mozilla's last experimental version which was still a work in progress (featuring file reporting, download tokens, trust warnings and FxA changes), this has selectively been merged into this fork. Please consider to donate to allow me to keep working on this.

Thanks Mozilla for building this amazing tool!
