Have to Remove and Install daily

Postby Ian_AW » Wed May 30, 2018 10:34 pm

G'day,

I am using the latest version of FlashGot but using version 56.0.2 (64bit) of Firefox because many of the extensions I use will not work with the latest version of Firefox.

The problem is that for the past few weeks, I have had to Remove FlashGot and then go back and Install it to get all the options in the right click context menu.

At the moment, if I right click on a link, I get the following items in the pop up menu:

FlashGot All Ctrl+F3
FlashGot Tabs Shift+Ctrl+F3
Build Gallery...
FlashGot Options

The FlashGot Link Ctrl+F1 is missing. After removing, restarting Firefox, installing, and restarting Firefox the FlashGot Link Ctrl+F1 is back again, only at various points in the day, it will disappear and I have to go through this again.

Is there a folder where the items in the right click menu are saved?

Thanks.

(Earlier today I wrote...)

Waterfox, has "oddities", like the Media icon picking up a different tab's media - every so often.

And the 'FlashGot Link' menu item does not display, though the Ctrl+F1 shortcut does work.
The former likely has to do with e10's, the latter definitely does.

Waterfox, being like FF 56, so see if disabling e10's makes a difference?
(In WF, Tools | Options -> General -> Startup ---> Enable multi-process [uncheck & restart]. Don't know if FF has similar?)


Otherwise, not telling when or if FlashGot gets an update.
And even if it did, can't imagine it would be the "legacy" version, but instead a webextension version.

Thanks, but unfortunately Firefox does not have that option.

And just for good measure, this restart of Firefox has see the option disappear so it is the remove and install process all over again.

Just looked up the More Options item and unchecked the Hide Disabled Commands and now the FlashGot Link shows up, only somehow it has been disabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Well I guess that is the reason for the Hide Disabled Commands option.
(Didn't even realize that was there, much less did I ever take the time, until now, to toggle its setting to see what it might do.)

You can disable e10's in FF, just not sure how to offhand.
If they don't have a GUI preference, it will be something in about:config.

Anyhow, disable & see if the menu item returns, & stays.
Then decide which might be more important for you.
