I assue you are using Windows. Create a text file with the commands (for example

firefly  (or whatever name your executable has) -r -stdext -i name_of_input_file  -o name_of_output_file

and save it with a name ending in a .bat extension. By clicking that .bat file, firefly will be invoked and use the selected input file .

Good luck!
