- di mari, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5I've seen you answered another review that said: "This is a great extension but it must include an option to select one folder to store all the selected links and not need to save file by file." I added Downloadlinks to firefox today. Left 'Do not open file location chooser...' checked, and in my firefox preferences I have 'Always ask where to save files'. But it didn't ask and saved on the default folder.
Great extension, simple and to the point. Thanks! But this download folder thing is the only thing missing.
p.s.: I think you should add an 'About' to the configurations.
Edit: sorry, I couldn't find a way to reply to your reply =) So I'm posting it in my original review. You answered:
"If 'Do not open file location' in unchecked, then the file chooser dialog *may* show up. It's *may* because that setting depends on Firefox setting 'Always ask where to save files'."
And, as I said on my first review: "in my firefox preferences I have 'Always ask where to save files'. But it didn't ask and saved on the default folder. " So, it is not working, either by the extension or because of my browser (plus exotic OS, combination),
I did not ask for the feature, to save only the links, but that sounds nice =) I suggested an 'About' somewher,e because there is nowhere in the extension that you say the name of it: ''Downloadlinks'' (not even in the window title), but that is just me digressing. Thanks again, for your answer.Thanks for reviewing!
Feature to save only links and not the real files? sounds good. I will add this to backlog.
Clarification about file chooser dialog:
If 'Do not open file location' is checked in Download-links, then no file chooser dialog will show-up at the time of download and all downloads will go to the default download folder that is set in Firefox Preferences. However, you can set relative folders in default download folder by specifying paths that is based on of tags. It is in Download-links->Preferences->Save Options. By that way you can organise files by date, filename and even by website name.
If 'Do not open file location' in unchecked, then the file chooser dialog *may* show up. It's *may* because that setting depends on Firefox setting 'Always ask where to save files'. If the Firefox setting is set, then the file chooser will be prompt for every download (not a good experience). If FF setting is not set, it would go to a default download folder.
Note: Firefox does not allow addon's to modify the default download folder. Hence the above behaviour for saving files.
- di Jorge L, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5It's a great plug-in!!
By the way, Could you add a maximum number of downloads at the same time?
If I'm downloading 50 files, I think that doing the job by 5 files at the same time as maximum is better to not be banned by the server.
Anyway, congratulations for this Add-on

- di Benico, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5Thanks for your effort ! I have the same comment as other users: I don't want to specify the location for each individual file. And it always defaults to the same (previously used) download location.In release 4.0 you can manage download location by means of rename tags. It's a powerful feature and allows customisation of directory names and file names.
- di Akerbeltz, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5Finally a working replacement for DownloadThemAll, many thanks! The only feature I miss is being able to specify a download location, it defaults to Downloads but that's really messy at times if the files being downloaded don't have a clean name pattern (like sometimes they'll start with YYYY_MM_DD_NAME, sometimes it's YYYY_NAME_MM or NAME_YYYY_MM etc) and then they end up all over the Downloads folder, so it would be much better to be able to specify a specific folder.
- di ArsenioLupin, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5Muy buena, permite descargar otros tipos de archivos que no sean solo los que tiene registrados. Le faltaría poder indicar donde descargar todos los archivos juntos (y no uno por uno) y además que guarde el listado de extensiones agregadas.
- di Utente Firefox 14020589, 3 anni faValutata 4 su 5Necessita uma opção para "somente copiar os links para o clipboard ou um arquivo txt" para download futuro.
Outra opção seria não mostrar os links não desejados, como por exemplo: seu eu escolhi somente os tipos .rar, então, não deve aparecer na lista final os links de outros tipos de arquivos. Mesmo que desmarcados!
veja o plugin / extensão: https://sites.google.com/site/linkgopher/
It need an option to 'copy the links to the clipboard or a txt file' for future download.
Another option would be not to show the unwanted links, for example: your I chose only .rar types, then the links of other types of files should not appear in the final list. Even if unmarked!
see plugin / extension: https://sites.google.com/site/linkgopher/Thanks for the review.
Will provide an option to save and read links from clipboard.
Filtering mechanism will also be altered.
If you have more comments or suggestions, kindly email me.
Obrigado pela revisão.
Fornecerá uma opção para salvar e ler links da área de transferência.
O mecanismo de filtragem também será alterado.
Se você tiver mais comentários ou sugestões, por favor me envie um email.
- di Skevos Mavros, 3 anni faValutata 5 su 5So far so good - it scans a page for links, even an RSS XML page of links to a podcast's episodes, and lets me download them. The ability to shift-select a subset of links would be handy, but other than that - it just works!
- di Utente Firefox 13978539, 3 anni faValutata 3 su 5Minimal alternative for dTa. It downloads specified files. That is.
I appreciate your work, however, I have to point two things (for version 2.1):
1. It seems to simply use Firefox's download function. If you're using "Always ask me where to save every file" option, you'll get the same number of windows and the downloading files. The current workaround is to set your option to "Save files to" and the destination folder BEFORE downloading. I'd be happy if I can set the destination folder for each chunk of download in the download panel.
2. It cannot get the links for some URLs. In my environment, the failed URLs contain ", ".Thanks for the review.
1. Choosing Download folder - Will add a option for saving a category of files BEFORE downloading but that would be all relative to the default Firefox download folder that is set in Firefox Preferences. None of the plugins have permission to save anywhere else in disk due to restrictions imposed by Firefox for security reasons. Feature will be available in 3.0
2. Comma in links - Bug has been addressed in 2.2.
- di Utente Firefox 13967481, 3 anni faValutata 5 su 5Exactly what i was looking for!
But it has a bug and i would really love to see it getting fixed soon.
If you use a custom extension like "jpg" because in the list is only "jpeg", then after downloading the files they will be in the downloads folder with the name "download" and no file extension.
So after downloading 20 images you end up with "download(1)" ... "download(20)".
If these at least had .jpg in the end would be great :)
Also sometimes it doesnt download the images and gets stuck ('pending downloads'), a second try would set all downloads complete which raises the question what went wrong the first attempt.
-- edit --
win10 / firefox was clean install since i use chrome for dev
i can't reproduce it either, the site seems not to want me to scrape their images and changed their image link behaviour. Nvm then, i tested the custom suffix feature on a major tech site and it worked. no bugs.Thanks for the review and with respect to issues:
#1. Downloaded files being saved like download(1) download(2) etc..
Could you check on this thread - it requires some plugins to be removed - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1200035
and let me know if it solves the issue. If it persists you can let me know the webpage which has this issue and if you are on Windows?
#2. Downloads not being completed - pending downloads
Throttling should help. Will soon get this addressed in next version.
