- by Firefox user 13565575, a year agoRated 3 out of 5it would be nice if "Down Right Now" allowed the user to choose the location of DownZemAll's executable manually, so it would be compatible with DownZemAll's portable version which is officially available on its page on the Advanced Setup section.
Developer responseposted a year agoUnfortunately it is not possible to implement what is described here. Indeed it would require Firefox to have a write-access permission on the Windows Registry, which is not safe. (respectively on Linux, a write-permission to directory “~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts”). This add-on and the DZA! application communicate through "Native Messaging", which is the compliant method provided by Firefox and Chrome.
=> the solution is to run “install.bat” (conversely “uninstall.bat”) provided in the portable's ZIP, in order to let Firefox know the right path to the application.
PS: or edit manually the app's path from the Windows Registry (resp. Linux ~/.mozilla directory).
