The workaround with "Open in Browser" is not really an option, because of the download behaviour of Firefox:
When opening a download (without "Intercept all Downloads" option), Firefox starts already downloading the file to the temp folder in background, before the user chooses an action, like download with FlashGot.
(See also this long term bug
If the user chooses to download with FlashGot then, the temporary downloaded file is thrown away => waste of disk space, traffic, etc.
I am not sure, if this can be avoided completely, since with the include filter, the temp file is created, too. But this is probably only for getting the right MIMEType. Otherwise it is an FlashGot bug!A comment from a dev
would be nice (concerning the HttpInterceptor / nsIURIContentListener, afaik), as I am interested in this (as a possible contributor
So my wish would be for FlashGot to always intercept the download, except for the excluded file extensions, before the temp file gets created, if possible, thus circumventing the Firefox "bug", too.
