FlashGot 1.5.6.13

Unread postby Freezing Moon » Wed, 16 Mar 2016, 20:57

FlashGot 1.5.6.13 is totally broken in Pale Moon 26.1.1 .

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /flashgot/

Previous version (1.5.6.12.1-signed) is working fine.

What does that mean for those of us who don't understand what they're talking about?

Is it a FF bug, a plug in bug, or a PM compatibility thing... and can we fix it?

The PM compatibility thing. Can be fixed in Pale Moon (or in the extension).
But it's the same as with other things, e.g. https://github.com/MoonchildProductions ... Extensions
It is easier to fix this problem in FlashGot (using try/catch?)...

There's a recent thread in Flashgot's forum about this:
https://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=21717&sid=aa915436794128aee3b97a69515aaa38.

It could be helpful if you post there and point them back to this thread and to the posts by developerofthisfork here and here:

And for the time being roll back to v.1.5.6.12.1-signed since apparently it's working.

Edit: Just saw from here that v.1.5.6.12.1-signed didn't work for you before -- though it has worked for some others -- so if that's still true for you then obviously roll back to your own modded version.

I think whether 1.5.6.12 worked or not had to do with x64 versus x32.
Although considering FlashGot was reading Pale Moon as a more recent version of FF than it was and using the wrong components, I can't see why it would have worked for ANYONE unless they performed some other customization.

I'll be adding weak message listeners since it's useful for more than just flashgot, but likely flashgot will still not work because of the "Downloads API" which is pretty much Firefox only.

I'm trying to understand if the downloads api is an issue, and it seems to be for me, why some people are claiming to have no problems with the official version of 1.5.6.12 with the current version of PM.

What needs to be done is Flashgot should check for our GUID, and if so (meaning running on Pale Moon), not try to use the Firefox 26+ javascript-based downloads interface.
FTR, the GUID is {8de7fcbb-c55c-4fbe-bfc5-fc555c87dbc4}

I went back to "FlashGot 1.5.6.12.1-signed" and prevented updates. Since then "FlashGot" plus "DownThemAll" work again.
But from "PaleMoon [26.1.1]" start today this morning "NoScript" - recently updated to version "2.9.0.6" - does not work anymore. Same pop-up as in "FlashGot 1.5.6.13" asking for a re-install. I manually updated to the latest stable version "2.9.0.7", but "NoScript" stays completely unresponsive / inoperable. As it is the same developer as for "FlashGot", I suppose it has to be a similar problem. Before there will be hopefully a solution for both add-ons, I'm going to try a re-install of "2.9.0.5" and will post the result here soon.
One more question is about "Print pages to PDF". Version "0.1.9.3.1-signed" does not function (save) under "PaleMoon". Is there a solution in sight or has anyone advise regarding an old version which works?
But a very positive thing is at least, that the invaluable "Complete YouTube Saver" works like a charm again; since installing the " | Pale Moon mod 5.6.53.1" version. Thanks for that, guys!
And as "uBlock Origin" works as well again under "PM", I could disable "Adblock Latitude". The latter caused a growing number of distortions of websites leading to print-problems when converting to "pdf" with "PrimoPDF" on my machine.
Unfortunately I guess and according to the "PM"-website, there is no solution for the "Nimbus Screen Capture" to expect. Or is there some development now?
Anyway, a big "Thanks" to the 'wise guys' at "PM" and with the add-on-developers as well as to experienced fellow users to get things discussed and working!

Okay, the "NoScript"-problem seems to be solved for the time being. The versions "2.9.0.5" to "2.9.0.7" are deemed not to be compatible with "Firefox 24.9" [and PM] according to the Mozilla add-ons-site. I went back to version "2.9.0.4" which is installable and works under "PaleMoon" without problems. But now - most recently and after "..8rc1" and "..9rc1" versions - there is a seemingly stable version "2.9.0.9" on top of the list. It was released on March 20, 2016 and it installs and works in "PM 26.1.1". But it was still not on the "NoScript" changelog-list a few moments ago. Get it at the following link: <https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/versions/?page=1#version-2.9.0.9>

Flashgot installs, but still doesn't work for YouTube... have you tried there?

Edit: Heck with it, here is an updated PM version of FlashGot 1.5.6.13.

http://www.mediafire.com/download/m8b6zpzyaf9iuue/flashgot_mass_downloader-1.5.6.13-pm.xpi

Again, the only change is to SDownloadsAPI.jsm to change the version check from 26.01a to 29.0.

I noticed today that my above version of FlashGot hasn't been added to the compatibility fix list for Pale Moon.
Instead 1.5.6.12 is still recommended. Any particular reason?

PM v27 breaks Flashgot completely. Neither official nor PM custom version are functional.

Anyone know what got changed now before I roll back to PM 26?

No problems here. I just downloaded videos from Vimeo and YouTube (FlashGot + DownThemAll!) .
I'm using the latest official FlashGot version.

Are you sending the video to an external downloader? Flashgot is broken with PM's internal downloader. I can make it work in conjunction with jdownloader2, but frankly it was easier to switch to Video Downloader Professional.

Still, I'd like to know why Flashgot can generate a link that an external download manager can handle but not PM's internal one. Sounds like there is something wonky with PM this time.
