As of today Mozilla is going to drop support for binary components in extensions.
The news is here
As far as I know FlashGot creates a binary file as written here
I guess the file is being created in Windows (I dunno how it's implemented in Linux).
Giorgio, what do you think of all this? What is the future of FlashGot? I think it's not only mine best downloader ever
Keep up your good work!

I don't know, but I don't think
FlashGot is going to be affected?
Figure if it were to be, it would have had to be updated along with each new release, & that has never been the case.
But yes it sucks that they woke up the other morning & said, it's gone.
Seems as if Lightning is going to be the biggest loser in this deal.
