Flashgot Suddenly Stopped Working

Post by BluesFanUK » Sat Jun 02, 2018 10:24 pm

Firstly, I still think to this day this add on is by far the best Firefox ever had. It always kept me from moving to Chrome. I've stuck with Firefox v54 for the past 18 months or so because the Quantum update is quite frankly pathetic, and because I wanted to keep all my adds one like FlashGot and SaveImages.

As of the last three or four weeks i've had a real issue with FG actually working. If i'm on an image sometimes the options for Build Gallery are completely gone, othertimes they are there but when I click it shows an old image link I was on previously (or something random), the referer url says:

More often then not I click the FG button and nothing happens whatsoever.

I've not updated anything on my PC (except for Windows 10 updates). My download manager has always been the same (IDM) and i've turned off Avast in case it was blocking it. Nadda.

Today I updated to Firefox 56 (version before Quantum) and it was ok for 10 minutes, then back to the same old issues as above.

Has there been a background update of FG lately? It says v1.5.6.14 on mine.

Any help appreciated as this is becoming a serious problem for me.
