All Downloader Professional

Promising but hampered by a few bugs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,

This extension looks quite good, but there are the following long-standing bugs:

First bug:
If the option "only show files bigger th[a]n" is enabled, and a value set, when clicking the extension icon on a video loaded in a new tab (i.e. a tab other than what was opened when the option was enabled), no media is detected until the option is disabled.

Second bug:
If "Let Firefox determin[e] the filename" is chosen, when selecting a listed media link and clicking the "Download # files" button, I get the following error in the Firefox browser console and downloading does not work: "NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS: Not enough arguments [nsIWebBrowserPersist.saveURI] link64_adl_overlay.js:191:0"

Third bug:
There is considerable lag switching between the tabs. I tested this on YouTube.

I'm using Firefox nightly builds (e10s DISABLED).

Thanks

YouTube Grid Search and Preview Player

Need an option to disable auto pause feature. It doesn't work properly... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The auto pause feature keeps pausing video when I switch to another tab with YouTube -- even though no video is playing.

If I'm watching a video but also want to read comments or browse YouTube at the same time, I use more than one window. However, with this extension enabled, my video keeps getting paused every time I interact with another YouTube tab.

I tried disabling the only auto pause setting in the extension's options, but that did not help. Instead, I have to completely disable the extension -- which is a shame, 'cause it's otherwise a pretty good extension.

By the way, it you could make it restartless, it would be less of an issue if the extension needs to be temporarily disabled due to bugs like this.

Thanks

Edit: Thanks for the response. Restarting after disabling works.
Changing to 4 stars for now. 5 stars if the feature gets disabled by default, as I'm sure most users' experience will be like mine -- not realizing what happened and think it is a Firefox bug. Although, I'm sure there will be others who have a difference of opinion.

Edit 2: Thanks for fixing this with 3.6.2. So far so good.

Thank you very much. I've been waiting for an extension like this, for Thunderbird.

Middle-clicking no longer works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Middle-clicking to open in a new tab no longer works (Firefox 3.1b1pre). Would be nice to have this capability again. Other than that, works very well. Thanks.
