I haven't been able to use it in earnest because I want to keep Multiprocess Windows on. Hoping the folks can fix it :)
My firefox is still at version 22 just because of this add-on doesn't work on newer version. I'm surprised there is still no similar or alternative to this kind of add on.
And I really sorry to see it doesn't work anymore. It puts the ugly common way of saving files into the right form.
I miss you, download sort!
Would love to see an update to this addon for newer version of Firefox.
Won't work anymore meanwhile on FF 33.
These changes in Forefox just piss me off.
Wish there was an addon for h.264 video so I could stick with 17.0.11 ESR.
Dear Devon Jensen
Thank you for all the great years of fine service. I love the way Download Sort works. I do not know of any other download manager that will create a folder structure based on the URL
the way this tool does.
I hope you are doing well and I hope that there will be a new version soon.
I agree with 'testarossa', the unofficial 2.5.8b patch has stopped working. It's a damn shame as this is a brilliant little add-on and I hope something can be sorted soon, either officially or unofficially.
Has the patched v2.5.8b version now stopped working for anyone else in FF27?
Question - Will there ever be support for keywords in the download URLs? For example, all of my professors names are on the blackboard downloads. With this option I could have files go straight to their respective class folders.
An again firefox broke the extension.Now caused by the deprecation of the document.getElementById("statusbar-display") function in Firefox 25.
thank you for your effort on this!
it really is annoying that with every new FF version some extensions stopworking properly. :(
and we get FF updates every 7 weeks, AFAIR. :(:(
personally, i decided to stick to v24 ESR for now, i had too many troubles in the past.
...for the feedback; I appreciate it :) . Apparently this add-on gets more and more incompatible with each new release of Firefox. Currently I am working on a real replacement which I will post in my profile when it's done. Fixing this mod any further to work with valid API calls is just too much of work; creating a new one with similar features and proper update behavior is the only way to go.
Though it might take a while since my real-life work currently hits me hard on my available free time.
(P.S. the new one will not be a simple clone - I am not a copy cat programmer. It will look different but should have the same core features available; so my plans.)
Thanks for 2.5.8b, LeviathanX. Too bad I had to disable add-on auto-updates because 2.5.8 is considered a newer version and replaces your fix :/
I appreciate the fix. I've been trying to find an alternate add-on since firefox update broke Download Sort, but the only other one that seemed even close to this add-on also suffered from the update and wasn't working either. But with LeviathanX fix, it seems to work like it had before, so thank you
This has to be my most relied upon addon. It works extremely well. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with Firefox 23. I wish the dev would come back :(
Thanks LeviathanX for fixing this addon, now i can uppgrade to FF23. And it work fine right away.
I give 4/5 to this add-on, except a few bugs it was working perfectly, but after update to FFv23.0 it stoped working! and seems it's not updated for a longtime, hopefully somebody does.
I really loved this extension but as others have said its broken by updates in the latest version of Firefox. Devon, if you are reading these comments, please show Download Sort some love and give us an update.
Loved this add-on. Setting up was a breeze and made download management a dream come true. Needs to be updated to be comparable with ver 23 of Firefox. Please do this soon, I rely rather heavily on this add-on.
Worked great up through Firefox official release 22, but stopped working with Firefox 23. Still shows an "Automatically saving to: (some folder)" message at the bottom of the screen, but does not actually save the file.
This is a great program. Once you set up where you want files to go, that's it.
It's a bit time consuming at first to set up, but you only have to do it once for each fire type.
HOWEVER....If you select it seams to work without problem.
BUT!! If you select (there are 2 such options) nothing happens. I tried to
get in touch with the writer...BUT....I did not see any contact information on his profile page.
The home page listed here and in the add-on
leads to an outdated web page. This page sends you to a add-ons web site that
YOU HAVE TO PAY TO GET IN!! W T F!!
This addon works great and I am using it now :) It will work as long as you set up everything properly. I also encountered the same problem like murph and Orolo at the beginning, but when you go to the Options to create the filter for common extensions (eg. jpg, png, gif, bmp) and specify the folder you want to save (eg. My Pictures instead of My Documents). After all the setups, when you right-click to choose "Save Link As..." or "Save Image as...", or even using QuickDrag, the addon will save the pictures silently without showing any confirmation. Duplicates? Well, I choose "Auto-increment the filename" when I set up the filter so I don't need to worry when I accidentally save the same picture with the same filename, the firefox will not pop up anything to bother me when I am viewing web pages.
