Version 2.5.4 29.1 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Fixed bug where canceling an item was only hiding the item from view in the schedule list window rather than preventing the download.

Version 2.5.2 29.1 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

French locale translation was previously corrupted preventing the main schedule window from opening. 'DateTime' was also supposed to be using a locale. Increased default width of main schedule window.

Version 2.5.1 29.1 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

The XUL controls 'datePicker' and 'timePicker' seem to have some issues when setup using the 'dateValue' property.

Version 2.4.1-signed 29.5 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Brought back feature from older versions to stop all downloads at a specified time (chosen through preferences). Code to infer the target filename a bit better by connecting, following redirects and obtaining content disposition headers may have been causing issues or just undesirable for some users so this is now disabled by default and re-enabled though a preference.

Version 2.2.1-signed 24.7 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Added an icon and toolbar button

Version 2.1.1-signed 16.4 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Default time chosen based on last time chosen.
Fixed a stupid bug involving the schedule list window being left open.
Some slight window position changes.

Version 2.01.1-signed 16.1 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Fixed for Firefox 27

Version 2.0.1-signed 16.0 kB Works with Firefox 26.0 and later

Compatibility with Firefox 26. Download timers are now per download and there is no preferences anymore for simplicity.

Version 1.7.5.3.1-signed 18.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

The update to improve better file name detection lost support for non http downloads such as ftp. This has now been fixed.

Version 1.7.5.2.1-signed 18.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

Missed a semicolon on a default preference. This prevented the addon from working until preferences had been changed. Also fixed a bug causing the dialog to only appear after a very long time.

Version 1.7.5.1.1-signed 18.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

Fix for breaking change in Firefox 23

Fixed bug to allow no ASCII filepaths.

Version 1.7.1.1-signed 16.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

Stupid typo bug that is strangely compatible with Firefox 5 but came into light once upgraded to 6. Thanks Jake for the heads up on this bug.

Version 1.7.1-signed 16.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

It now works with https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mp4-downloader/. Extensions that utilize the contentAreaUtils saving API such as mp4-downloader can be scheduled. To do so use mp4-downloader in the usual way and you will then be prompted to start the download now or schedule for later. Note that however most other youtube downloaders are currently not compatible.

Version 1.6.1.1-signed 16.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

Added some more locales (translations). Thanks to Mikael Hiort af Ornäs for the Swedish one. The other were done with google translate and therefore might be inaccurate. Anyone is welcome to provide better translations though.

Version 1.6.1-signed 11.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later

Can now manually add to the schedule list and edit existing scheduled downloads.

Recurring downloads: Useful if the same URL is updated with a different file. When enabled scheduled items do not automatically remove themselves from the list upon download start.
