Weird Question: Install Custom Download Manager Scriptable?

Post by Michael Tunnell » Tue Mar 18, 2014 2:55 am

Is it possible to run a script or something to automatically install a custom download manager?

I have a custom tool that I would like to add but it is not something that would make sense as an official entry so was wondering if it would be possible to write a script and then install it without having to manually create it each time I reinstall or setup another computer?

Yes, I realize this is a weird question...sorry if this is the wrong forum but this isn't really a help topic and is possible external development.

You could use a user.js file or any other method that would enter/change a pref in prefs.js.

> user_pref("flashgot.custom", "To FILE");
> user_pref("flashgot.custom.To_FILE.args", "[UFILE]");
> user_pref("flashgot.custom.To_FILE.exe", "C:\\BIN\\win32pad.exe");
