What all does FlashGot put into that directory and is there any reason I cannot change it, as it would appear possible to do using the button?

Does this box need to remain checked still, even after the initial detection has been made? I mean, can I uncheck it without a loss of functionality?
jw72253 wrote:In the bottom section of the Advanced tab, there are some controls for looking at a Log. The checkbox to disable the log is by default unchecked so that the log should be created, at least that is how mine appeared. However, when I click on the button for "Show Log...", nothing happens. Where is this log and why do you suppose mine does not appear to be working?

Is the log file, flashgot.log, actually created & updated, but just not opening for you?

Tom T. wrote:Hi jw72253,
I don't intend to intrude on your discussion with Giorgio and therube, but you should know that every Firefox profile is assigned a more-or-less random identifier, which AFAIK is globally unique. (at least until they get up to almost 3 trillion profiles, when they'll either have to reuse some or add another character)
The pattern is eight alphanumeric characters, as b5509ne3, for example, and your first install on a given machine always has the suffix "default".
So I changed yours to an obviously-manufactured ID, for your own privacy.
therube wrote:> How big will this be allowed to get, can I control the level of detail, etc.?
Pretty sure it is supposed to be automatically truncated at some point. But there is another thread about where it is not happening for some, myself included .
Mine stands at 1 MB, starting back in July 2011, & running through today.
- Code: Select all
grep -i -c "*** flashgot" flashgot.log
Hello, Tom. Thanks for the information. Help me understand how changing my profile's identifier would help me with maintaining privacy? I mean, in general what would I gain in changing it to something random? It seems to me that the profile identifier is not visible to others in any way, and changing it would not change that condition.
Tom T. wrote:(Save a few keystrokes: "%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" is always the default path on Win XP, and we can see your operating system and version, as does every other web site you visit, so just "... in my Profile folder" is good enough. )
If I wanted to spoof my user agent, I could do so. At this juncture, I have no compelling reason to do so, and this is only one of the browsers available for my use and only one of the OS. Thank you.
