    Firefox isn't a system explorer. If you're looking for something to explore the file system, then maybe Konqueror is more suitable.

    Nothing beats the command line .

    You could use Firefox to see the directories and files (try navigating to file:/// ). You can't do much with the files though this way.

    I have never tried Emelfm but it does seem like it is what you are looking for.

    I'd also recommend Emelfm for browsing your filesystem.
