Bug: Checkbox not visible for selecting Media Download

Post by ml123123 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:43 am

System info:
Firefox 55.0.3 (32 bit)
FlashGot Plugin:
Windows 7 Ultimate

Steps to reproduce:
1. visit website with video (Youtube)
2. Watch movie
3. Click the, now blinking, FlashGot media download button
4. FlashGot selection window pops up with several detected media clips
5. No matter how you click, or select the clips you can't place a checkbox next to one of the videos. The checkbox must be there, it's just not visible, because media will download if you click "OK". Videos can be selected and they will be highlighted, but, unlike previously (likely before the Firefox update), you cannot place a checkbox next to the individual videos to select which ones get downloaded.

Great plugin. Have used and recommended it for years. Keep up the great work.

If that works (I have no way to test, though it is just a minor change), it won't work for most as signing will be broken, so they won't be able to install.
(Actually I can test in FF 52 ESR, & it doesn't seem to work there.
Still unable to individually select the items, checkboxes.
Can't say about FF 55.)
Actually it might work.
It's just that you have to "click in the box" & you need to be pretty precise about that.
And the colors (at least on my end) make it hard to determine that anything is or is not actually selected.

Actually, Giorgio's version works the same way - in FF 52.

See here too (though not really a "solution"), https://forums.informaction.com/viewtop ... 473#p89473.
