Firefox 55 no download selectable?

Postby ffuser123 » Wed Aug 09, 2017 9:46 pm

Hi,

I've updated to 55 and after the restart of Firefox flashgot does not let me select (tick on) files etc. anymore.

I mean the ctrl+f3 / popup window. Usually i ticked the files I wanted on and it worked fine.

I do like flashgot very much and I am already missing that feature :/

Is ist FF55? Is there a solution for this or a alternativ which works like flashgot?

I used Flashgot I believe since the beginning, 10+ years and have no idea which downloader really is similar.

I was afraid of it but is this already related to the FF57 armageddon? I'm really not keen on how Mozzila handels this. It' so frustrating.

Hi,

As a daily user of nightly, flashgot worked through all of 55, most of 56 up through to just before the code freeze a week before 57. At that point and beyond it broke.

You might need to look elsewhere for the issue, for example there are some extensions that can break flashgot.

Hi,
This is the same problem that I'm facing. Is there any workaround to this? :?: I'd rather not look for a new download manager. I love flashgot.

Problem persists into FF 55.0.1. I've tried disabling all other add-ons, but still no joy. The menu option to Flashgot a link is greyed out for everything.

On Youtube, you used to be able to right-click on the Flashgot button and get the entire list of videos where you could pick your favourite resolution to download. The button doesn't even show up anymore.

I've switched over to 'Savefrom' and 'Video downloadhelper' for now. They both work on the new FF, but I'd much rather be using Flashgot.

Update: the culprit is the multiprocess feature introduced in FF 55, and this can be disabled via about:config. Create a boolean called browser.tabs.remote.force-enable and set it to false.

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