Incompatiblility-FlashGot1.5.6.13 & PaleMoon26.1.1Browser

Hi,

Upon update of the latest addon FlashGot 1.5.6.13 within PaleMoon 26.1.1, the download of files via flashgot addon to the target download manager would not work anymore.

Clicking on the tab PaleMoon Tools > FlashGot > More Options would only result in an open window with an error "A core FlashGot component is missing or corrupted. Please reinstall FlashGot.".

There is no problem evident in the other browsers Firefox/Cyberfox though.

Some recent change made with the latest addon update FlashGot 1.5.6.13 may have caused this error with PaleMoon 26.1.1 as there was no problem with the previous version.

Reverted back to FlashGot 1.5.6.12 as interim measure.

Hoping for a bugfix soon.

Ditto. Another PM user who would like to see FlashGot keep up with it.

Wasn't logged in, so I can 't edit that post.

I've seen two problems:

First, starting with 1.5.6.12, JSDownloadsAPI.jsm contains the line "return Services.vc.compare(Services.appinfo.version, "26.0a1") >= 0;".
Pale Moon is a higher version number but needs the pre-v26 JSM version to function, especially on YouTube.

With v1.5.6.13, the above is possibly still an issue, but FlashGot is now completely non-functional. It throws an error that a core component is missing.

Someone sent me a beta (?) to use until something permanent comes along and after a reboot it didn't work again a tall.

So I'm back to using a version from last year but we'll see after another reboot.

There's a thread on the Pale Moon support forum concerning this. Am linking it hoping it will be helpful: http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11534

The only fix I could find for this was disable add-on updates for this add-on and reinstall FlashGot Version: 1.5.5.8.1, It worked for me.

Here's a link.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flashgot/versions/1.5.5.8.1-signed

I am also looking for a solution myself.

But I thought I'd share this, while I patiently wait for a fix.

Hello! Congratulations and thanks for your excellent FlashGot extension - it has always been very helpful. Just registered to also ask if this Pale Moon compatibility problem might be hopefully fixed. :)

A Pale Moon compatible version of the most recent version of FlashGot is on this thread: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11534#p82603

Any bugs or issues with the program's normal functionality is up to its author to deal with... who has been MIA for quite a while.

A cursory inspection shows that to be correct.
(I didn't look at the "signing", nor do I have any clue about FlashGot, this or the mod'd one, & PaleMoon, in general.)
