Firetools offers a system tray launcher for sandboxed apps, sandbox editing, management, and statistics. Double icon on an icon opens the application. You can use the right mouse button to open a context menu.

The application is built using Qt 5, a free and open-source widget toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces as well as cross-platform applications that run on various software and hardware platforms.


The software package also includes a sandbox configuration wizard, firejail-ui.
