Re: Need feedback about my FlashGot-like addon

Really interesting, I've tried it and it's a good start but needs more work to be done.
I keep my eye on this project.

FlashGotters and NoScripters of all lands, unite!
It's possible. But the authors of those addons have to add this functionality to their addons.
Currently none. TabmixPlus is not possible to recreate with the current API. But some of its features might be. I might give it a try in the future but currently I'm occupied with Download Grab.What other add-ons are you rewriting? I might be interested in them as well.
This is a feature. Some people might want to view these files in the browser instead of downloading them. I've added an option for this now that you can disable if you want.It seems that it can't override the dialog window in one case. When mp4 videos are suppose to be opened and played in the browser.
Same as above. Plain text files, PDF files and media files are by default opened in browser. If you want to be prompted for download use the option mentioned above.For some reason it also can't do it with txt files it seems.
Only that FlashGot & yes, I know this isn't FG, in addition to "feeding" links to a download manager, could also "detect" links (i.e., FlashGot Media), which this doesn't do at all (which I understand). But as I look at it, FG did both. With this, & more pointing out that while this does some, the other part, detection, there would be another tool needed to accomplish that.What do you mean by "detection"?
Well, I can certainly judge "not enough" - for me .not enough
It has a toolbar button that grabs many files to its list. Also medias, maybe not all of them, but still. As I use it now it detects all mp4 video files that suppose to. It's still alpha, so it's not perfect and fully comfortable to use. Generally I use Video Downloader Prime add-on that grabs links and I right click them to grab it with DLG. It still has its issues, but it's better than nothing. What add-ons do you use for media grabbing?
Still don't know what you need besides the media.Well, I can certainly judge "not enough" - for me
Doesn't your download manager have such function to grab links from clipboard? Does FlashGot has it?Paste from(/Grab from) clipboard, with the thought that if I have to use another utility to "detect" a link, if that other utility can copy the link to the clipboard, & if DLG can grab that link (clipboard copy), then in that vein DLG has "detected" the link (so then able to be passed to download manager).
Edit. Turns out this is an issue with current beta versions of SeaMonkey (2.53.4beta).And, to top it off, the service fails in SeaMonkey (web browser), either returning an (invalidly reported) 404, or SeaMonkey generates non-stop Request's, with the service eventually "banning" you, then returning 429 Too Many Requests .
So does it work if you set about:config > privacy.resistFingerprinting.block_mozAddonManager to true (you might need to create this boolean pref) and/or blank out about:config > extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains ?
