Really really valuable add-on. I need it and I've got it :) Works very wonderfully too...I just installed and wrote a very excited review for another add-on that may be an earlier version of this called 'Extended link properties +'. Not the same as in your link above. This one has same icon and same look as your present one, but only one tab in options panel. and the ominous word "(obsolete)" after title on add-ons page. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/extended-link-propertie-124503/ Also a different developer name. So I disabled that one when I found and installed yours. Since that one is said to be no longer in development, I extend all kudos and gratitude written there to you and this present and updated and currently maintained version.
See "Developer’s Comments" for Extended Link Properties +: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/extended-link-propertie-124503/#developer-comments
Extended Link Properties + is a bit modified version of my old (unofficial) fork (based on version 1.4.0): https://forum.mozilla-russia.org/viewtopic.php?pid=479897#p479897 (was changed only extension ID and localization)
For those of you that have a problem with opening pdf files in TB when this extension is installed, the author's suggestion of creating a boolean variable in about: cofig named "extensions.linkPropertiesPlus.download.forceFakeURIHack" (without the quotes ""), when set to "True", solves the problem.
If the variable is set to "False", when attempting to open a pdf file, both the pdf opening dialogue screen and TB hang will continue to hang as previously reported.
I'm now happy to up the rating to 5 stars, and am very pleased that this extension, unlike the original extension, supports TB.
Can't reproduce. Some special Tab Mix Plus settings (or other extensions)? And what you mean? Click on some "downloadable" link -> Opening ... dialog -> check Save File radiobutton -> Ok or you use "Save link as… (Ctrl+S)" button on Link properties dialog?
Anyway please provide detailed description here: https://github.com/Infocatcher/Link_Properties_Plus/issues Information from about:support page and exported Tab Mix Plus settings may help me to fix this.
A similar functionality once was removed from the browser (in the Age of Idiocy, that Firefox suffered much from). And that's why Extended Link Properties appeared (and it got very popular, just as a proof that Mozilla's management took a wrong decision to remove that functionality from the browser). I don't know the reasons why that add-on was disabled on AMO, but it is very nice, that it has now been revived and is being developed!
