Add-on does not work in FF 36 / I downgraded back tot FF 35.0.1 Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Same problem over here, does not work anymore in Firefox 36. The support page of their internet site (www.downloadhelper.net) finally suggested “Please feel free to register and post your issue description in our support forum”. However, the link to “our support forum” resulted in a time-out on the server of forum.downloadhelper.net !
Because I don’t want to miss the download possibilities offered by Downloadhelper I downgraded my Firefox version to 35.0.1. Result : works perfect again !

Leider nicht mehr funktionsfähig mit Firefox V36.

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Der einzige Grund, dass ich Firefox benutze, ist DownloadHelper. Seit der letzten Update 36.0 funktioniert nicht mehr. Wann kommt die neue Unpdate für DownloadHelper?

Funktioniert nicht mehr mit Firefox 36. Zum Glück gibt es gute Alternativen. 5 Sterne, wenn es wieder funktioniert.

Version 5 does not work very well Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

No, version 5 does not work. it works only with youtube which is not the only offer on the internet.
And not at all with some sites like dpstream with wich I never had issues before.
It really needs a fix.
Thx in advance.

Super! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Eines der bestes free Plugins seit langem. Hakelt ein bisschen bei Youtube. Aber großartige Arbeit der Autoren, die unbedingt die Unterstützung der User verdienen. Deshalb habe ich gerne gespendet.
Danke

Thank you! Version 5 is great! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Only thing is, I miss the cool context menu entry for downloading on Youtube, also it doesn't support the Download Status Bar add-on, that would make Version 5 truly awesome! Otherwise it works like a charm.

Version 5 works again on FF 36 Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I installed Version 5.0.0a1 from:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/video-downloadhelper-5
exactly:
http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=5.0.0a1
and it works again with FF 36 :)
The downloads are not anymore controlled in the FF Download Window, but never mind. I can see the progress in the Video DownloadHelper's PopUp.
This add-On is the only I know which downloads any stream I could view in the many many streaming portals. I just open the stream, start to view it and then the Icon of VDH starts turning. I can then download the very same stream and then I stop viewing the stream that I dont download it twice (and loose bandwith).
Works mostly.
Thanks

Other downloaders do work under FF36 Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

DownloadHelper (which I have loved for years) also ceased working for me with the release of FF36. Until the problem is fixed, one might consider switching to the add-on Flash Video Download, which does work with FF36.

The new version, 5, of DownloadHelper works great on Win 7 Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Thanks for the prompt fix - works great on Win 7 machine. Tools menu icon has changed - no longer has the down arrow.
Was confusing at first because nothing shows in the downloads dropdown, but the downloaded files are there in the selected folder.
Note: The app dropdown shows 3 mp4 choices. I downloaded each and all are the same size, so I deleted two of them.

The new version, 5, of DownloadHelper works but doesn't appear in Tools menu Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Thanks, mig. I installed the new version using the link you provided:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/video-downloadhelper-5

But, while it works for downloading videos, there're a few problems:

1) The DownloadHelper toolbar icon is all the way to the far right of the Firefox toolbar and there's apparently no way to move it. Clicking on it to try to drag it over to where I want it doesn't work, so I tried using the Firefox Customize option in order to try to remove the add-ons icon from the toolbar altogether and to then click on it to drag it to where it's desired on the toolbar, but the icon can't be removed from the toolbar in this manner. It's what I've sometimes had to do to reposition tool icons on the toolbar and it always worked, before.

2) There's no DownloadHelper menu or option in the Firefox Tools menu.

3) Clicking on the icon in the Firefox toolbar doesn't provide DownloadHelper options, except for downloading a video when the current tab is for a page with a running video in it. There's also a Logs entry saying that the storage directory isn't defined, but this requires the Preferences option.

4) Downloads are no longer shown in the Firefox downloads manager that's opened using Tools | Downloads.

I wanted to post this as a reply in your groups.google.com/forum thread for the new version of DownloadHelper 5, but while a few readers posted comments earlier today, I'm not getting a Reply option after having joined the group.

Version 5 Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

No longer works on FF36 and above (no longer works on the stable version).
The convert tool doesn't work on 64 bits FF editions.I guess it expects for a 64 bits convert program because it doesn' find it. Otherwise, very good extension, of course
I updated the discussion. Convert program : fixed, it is recongnized in 64 bits (I had to reinstall it) but I could not use it
