this does not work at all.
the icon is not pressable
It didn't do anything. Just sits there. I think its actions are suspicous.
As hinted at the plugin description some website developer knowledge is needed to dynamically add the 'download' attribute to anchor tags.
Open up the browser console and enter:
$$('a[href*=".webm"]').forEach(s => s.setAttribute('download', s.getAttribute('href')))
Above command line will:
- find all anchor tags on a website which contain the '.webm' extension in their 'href' attribute
- then iterate over found anchor tags
- and set the 'download' attribute to each anchor using the value from the 'href' attribute
This makes the toolbar button appear everyone was searching for.
Adjust code to your needs.
At least it gets intalled but it does not work the way I was expecting. I need to soqnload various links at the same time. Not video. But I can not see an option to do that.
Does not work for me. There is no toolbar button and I can find no way to activate the extension.
There is neither an icon nor a list, this extension does not work at the moment - too bad!
You need to
A. Make a right click download option
B. Make a highlight link selection option
C. Make hyperlinks visible to the downloader
D. Make all forms of media AS WELL AS multi page hyperthreads visible to the downloader
As this product is, although I see potential, until these issues are addressed it is just click-bate.
I WILL change my review to 5 stars if you can fix this add-on
Très pratique. J'utilise un userscript pour ajouter l'attribut "download" sur les lien d'une certaine page et je peut tout récupérer
Despite the terrible reviews I gave this a try. Using FF 57 (64-bit). The screenshot provided shows an icon in the address bar that is not visible on my browser. Tried installing a couple of times, exited, re-entered browser and still the icon does not exist.
The WIKI for the add-on does not provide any information related to this issue.
If it does anything at all, I can't see it! How about making screenshots + step-by-step instructions MANDATORY FOR ALL PLUG_INS? Not FAQs, actual, indexed, searchable instructions, including TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS?
Quality control appears to be non-existent at Mozilla lately. The "new-improved" product is glitchy and plug-ins are iffy. Uninstalling this one.
I hoped that maybe the other reviewers were missing something, but the icon never appeared for anything that I was trying to download. Useless.
No icon. I restarted FF, still no icon. Just no icon?????
Icon nowhere to be found, even with the default Firefox's theme.
Another piece of shit offering by Firefox. Mozilla too busy celebrating release of the God awful 57 Quantum that has crippled my browser and removed all add-ons that can download music, videos, and images...NOW I GOT SHIT! Thanks, Mozilla...go to fucking hell!
No icon, no drop-down, no pop-up, no nothing! No zero stars available so I have to give it a 1 to submit. A complete waste of my time. Doesn't Mozilla review this sort of thing before they put it up on the site? I've been using this browser for decades but I'm starting to question Firefox (Mozilla's staff) it's self...
Ok, found the icon. It was hidden by a theme; but once removed the theme, it showed up. But... the icon is grayed out, does not work. Deleted again.
Icon appears on the menu but greyed out because it cannot see PDF downloads.
scrollbar is not shown while downloading, if there are multiplefiles to download, hence the list goes out of the screen which needs to scroll down. Please help give me new version
I got the list of downloadable files. But my list is very long, and I see no way of scrolling down, where I presume there is a button to start the download. Useless.
Found out what went wrong. File reference needs to be part of download attribute.
I get nothing. Doesn't show up on the menu bar and I know there are downloadable files. No preferences to troubleshoot with. Waste of time.
Thanks for giving the add-on a try and for letting us know
your experience with it. We will try to reproduce what you
are seeing and fix it. Just send the URL on which you
observe the trouble and we will get right on it.
I have tried, but can't get it to work on v30.
Thanks for giving it a try and sorry it didn't work as expected. I would like to see it work for you. You can provide more detail on the behavior you experienced, including the website where it wouldn't work, by visiting https://github.com/mediascience/Browser-Multiple-Downloader/issues and opening an issue there. We will look into it right away.
