Thrawn, that's scarily hilarious! :lol:
That time could come, but I 'm sure I won't be here to see it.

Theoretically that can work if you're fast enough :).

Restart FF and Flashgot behaviour should be back to what it was before.



Worked for me

Me again!
One tip for anyone FG does still work for, with invisible check marks, quick way to check yr downloading what you want is to click the tick mark at the top of the column in the window to sort by checked, then you'll know it's working and ticked ones will be listed together ;)

OK so I ive been checking back here to see if there's any update on this. None so far it seems.
Not sure what's changed yr end Daffdaemon. All my right click Flashgot choices are all good (i.e. not greyed out). My problem with invisible check marks persists, but I have no problems with Flashgot All choice, and all download OK when I check select all or click download all by default, or if I click individually. "False" still appears, altho sometimes delayed.
My FF is still on 55.03 and I'm thinking not to upgrade FF at all (I'm so fed up with things disappearing) snce it seems Flashgot is totally disabled in 57. I have not played with config settings at all.

Blasted FF developers, if they supplied & maintained our cars, they'd be pulling bits off after every service: oh you needed your door? It was preventing us from getting to the steering wheel! Microsoft also would have folded many many years ago if they made cars! :evil:

Update: The select all trick isn't working now either. NO Idea why it worked then suddenly stopped. aaarg!

I have same problem. Tried all the about:config suggestions. Did not resolve. The only thing that seems to work is 'select all'.
No checks appear but downloads everything. Then you've got the extra step of deleting all the garbage.
I don't see any 'false' tag when I try the blind selection method either. The other thing I tried was the file extensions filter. That does nothing either. Is there an ETA on fix.

Thank you NeverBeenHereBefore for the headsup on the 'false' label! Saved my day! Stoopid FF!
I have to download loads of work files and Flashgot saves me tonnes of time since our IT guy makes our life hard by listing files on loads of separate pages. I'm hoping the tick marks will reappear.

This last FF update is a PITA, and is freezing up constantly.

The solution I'm using is that the 'tick' is not displayed, but if you select a file by clicking the mouse, even though you cannot see the tick, the file is still selected and ready for download.

To check this, you can hover the mouse over where the 'tick' would normally be displayed, and if you see the word 'false' displayed, then that file is not selected for download.

However if you hover the mouse over the invisible 'tick' and the word 'false' is NOT displayed, then this file is selceted and can be downloaded.

I just recently encountered this problem too, but it's only because I started using Waterfox 55.0.2 instead of my outdated Firefox version.

At first, I couldn't check any of the selections in the Flashgot download dialog. I tried turning off the Multiprocesses like the previous posts said, but it still didn't look like things could be checked.

HOWEVER it seems that even though it doesn't look like the checkboxes are being checked when you click them, it's still registering as a check. So try clicking on the checkbox area of the selections you want, and then click the OK button and it should download what you 'selected'.

In about:support, does Multiprocess Windows show a 0, 0/1 or Disabled status? If not, it's still running.

Also, check inside Tools -> Options -> General -> Performance and ensure multiprocessing is not turned on by default.
