Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

@therube The problems you're facing seems to be from node running in the background. Apparently your sandbox doesn't like console windows (that's what Googling that error code suggested), and node is console window. Currently the addon's ability to detect file downloads seems to be alright. The next...

New update

Hey it's me. I've made some improvements and attempted to fix the issues that maxoku had found: Changes in v0.5.4a: Major changes in download detection policies. Problems with falsely detecting downloads should be minimized now. Fixed a problem with detecting download file names. Added option to spe...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

Installer generally is a good idea, but rather for the final version. As for testing it's best to keep it the most simple as it can be for quickly access. In the meantime you'll figure out how to make the installer to not be falsly detected as a virus, but testing itself can't wait. BTW I use AVG (...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

Can't download the native client. My antivirus claims it's a trojan. Could you fix that? I guess the installer is a problem, so maybe post it normally without installer? Ah crap. Sorry about that. Yes it was the installer. I'm using another tool for creating the installer now. But it's still detect...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

New update: - Context menu option for downloading a single link has been added. - The native client is now an installer and also smaller in size (~5.6Mb) - Waterfox issue is fixed Works in Legacy browsers ;-). For me FlashGot does the same thing as DLGrab, i.e. only opens the manager the first time...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

xpinstall.signatures.required;false is required. Right. Will edit the original post to mention that for people who want to test. If (Net Transport) is not already running, the first attempt to grab only opens the download manager. Second attempt to grab, works. It's because FlashGot.exe is outdated...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

No takers? I've added the ability to download links in the page too: https://i.imgur.com/85m99Z3.png I'm pretty sure the ability to sniff media streams in YouTube and other sites is also possible with WebExtensions because you have access to all the requests. DownloadGrab already grabs static media ...

Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

(When messing with FF) I used (don't recall offhand) downloader (webextension) - to grab a link, copied to clipboard (through the webextension), then I'd manually paste the link into my download manager. Sometimes that doesn't work because some request headers are missing. Namely cookies. Also I'm ...

Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

TL;DR : I'm creating an addon that lets you download links with external download managers. It's possible that other FlashGot functionality could also be added to it. But it will take a lot of time and effort to make so I want to know if people want it or not. Migrating to Firefox Quantum was very ...

Flashgot.exe command line arguments

Hi I'm developing an addon in the hopes that it would be able to mimic FlashGot's functionality. At least to some extent. After looking under the hood of FlashGot a little bit I realized there's a handy flashgot.exe file that appears to be in charge of communicating with different download managers....
