Issue with downloading from youtube

Postby Frank211 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 10:13 pm

Since my Firefox browser updated to version 51.0.1, I immediately had an issue with youtube downloads.
The only drop down menu item not greyed out is flashgot media, and the only items listed to be downloaded
are always 2 items, and the properties of these 2 files are "Firefox HTML Document (.webm)"
Prior to my Firefox browser updating to ver. 51.0.1 the flashgot media tab listed usually 12 to 14 items
to download, including actual multimedia files.
Can some tell me how to get the original flashgot functionality again?

Thanks, I had some other reports like this by email and on Twitter, but I couldn't reproduce myself yet.
Could you please perform Standard Diagnostic|sd on your side?

Thanks for the reply. I did the standard diagnostic steps, including a clean reinstall
but unfortunately this issue persists. One thing I haven't done yet is reinstall with an
older firefox version because the mozilla website says that is a security risk, which I
don't know is true or not.

OK, I've found it's an e10s issue.
While I'm trying to fix it, you can work-around by flipping all your browser.tabs.remote.autostart.* about:config preferences to false.

(Note that changing those Prefs disables e10s, so assume you do want e10s, the Pref changes should only be temporary until a FlashGot fix is out.)

I'm not really sure what e10s is, so it probably is not critical for me right now
