That's why she left them 1 star.
- Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 16863826, vor 2 MonatenIs there a method to download sth to my own chosen location? I cant find option "destination folder" or you know. I gibe 1 star because this option is esential for me.

IF THE DEVELOPER HAS ANY SENSE, they would use a "native client" to do the filesystem stuff. (Like in External Application Button: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/external-application/)
It leaves a mess all over the Firefox's internal download/browsing history instead of being self-contained. Completely worthless, try other solutions.

- Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13541515, vor 8 MonatenWhat happened to this app? How is it even possible you can no longer choose the DL location? WOW, this used to be a fabulous extension. It's pretty much dead to me now.
- Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 17880384, vor 10 MonatenNever noticed this before the latest update: "Access your data for all websites
The extension could read the content of any web page you visit as well as data you enter into those web pages, such as usernames and passwords. "
No @$%%ing way I'll use this app until they fix that.
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 9 MonatenThis highly misleading. Yes, DTA has that "Access your data for all websites" permission. It is required to make the "DownThemAll! All Tabs" feature work. Without it, DTA would only able to work on the presently active tab.
I'd rather have a more fine-grained permission, but that isn't offered by the browsers.
Furthermore each version is reviewed by mozilla, and actually reviewed thoroughly as a requirement for getting the recommended badge. "Stealing" user data would be against mozilla policy and they wouldn't approve such an add-on. Not that I ever would do such a thing, and I've been doing DTA since 2006 so I have a little bit of a track record of NOT stealing user data.
So, use the add-on or don't. But please do not insinuate falsehoods.
- Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternenvon Al, vor einem JahrAggravating as hell, because there's nowhere in the settings to choose a preferred download location (directory). It saves to the computer's desktop. I never save photos to the desktop.
In the description on the developer's website, it says that there is provision for the user to set where downloaded files are to be saved. The website is wrong. If there is a provision to choose the download location, then I missed it.
I used DownThemAll before Mozilla changed the way it did extensions. I stopped using DownThemAll after that, for the same reason I'm about to delete it from my browser now--because it has taken away my choice of where to save the downloaded files--a common courtesy among download extensions and browsers alike.
I hope the developer will add back that feature, but I'm not going to hold my breath, because he has had all this time to add that option back, but has chosen not to.
In my opinion, DownThemAll fails in the very thing that it was written to do (save time when downloading multiple files), because it doesn't give the option of where to save the files to.
Another bone of contention is that I tried out the new version of DownThemAll by choosing several sites that had thumbnails of images with hyperlinks to the full-size image (image galleries). In spite of trying several different options, DownThemAll ONLY downloaded the thumbnails. It did not download the full-size image.
The quality of this extension has diminished considerably since its original release. After using DownThemAll for many years, I am very disappointed in the past several versions of DownThemAll, including the latest version. It doesn't do what it once did. I have only kept it on my browser in hopes that the developer will eventually give the user the option of where to save downloaded files. Since that obviously is never going to happen, I am deleting it from my browser, and I will not use it again, unless the developer adds the ability to choose where to save files downloaded by DownThemAll, and enables DownThemAll to download full-size images instead of thumbnails.
Looks like you've gotten lazy, Nils Maier!
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 9 MonatenThe "Cannot choose a download location inside the add-on" thing is a limitation of WebExtensions. I hate it myself, but there is nothing I can do about it. Browser vendors decided that add-ons shouldn't be able to choose a folder for a download.
