Code search with fireftp

is there a way to search for a piece of code, or just a word, within a folder using fireftp? whenever i want to look for something within a websites files I always have to open dreamweaver and use their search. i’d like to avoid that step.

please advise. thanks!

Does Control+F in Firefox not work, or have I misunderstood your problem?

i want to look at the code that builds the webpages. for instance, if the page is built with php code, that’s not going to show on the front-end. i need to search the files on the remote site.
