It’s a known issue in 27.0 and the extension developer has been notified.

In the meantime you may want to try Download Manager (S3) which is currently compatible.

This add-on seems to works with simple fix.

first open XPI with any program of your choise and modify bootstrap.js

change lines 1386-1387.

switch(Services.appinfo.name) {
case "Pale Moon":
this.ff26above=false;
DownloadBar.ff26above=false;
this.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
DownloadBar.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
break;

change lines from false to true:

switch(Services.appinfo.name) {
case "Pale Moon":
this.ff26above=true;
DownloadBar.ff26above=true;
this.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
DownloadBar.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
break;

Great work!! I'm using PaleMoon v27.0.3 & your fix works fantabulously!

This is a first.......2 fixes in one day.....

First, the Nav Bar/Address Bar bug/incompatibility fix with incompatible themes https://userstyles.org/styles/135791/pale-moon-27-address-status-bar-fix

Then Second, this mod/fix of the DL Status Bar Add-on js file ▲ ABOVE ▲ (thanks for the link, I wouldn't have been able myself)

Two unintended (AFAIK) changes to our beloved PaleMoon via updates, bite the dust!

Bravo!!! Image


Thanks very much! Image

Thanks guys, works like a charm. :thumbup:
Can I somehow manually change language of this addon from English to my native? Download Status Bar has many translations.

Ok, here you can find all translations.

Just download as .xpi and enjoy DST in your language.

This win7-7 fix works for Pale Moon 27, but breaks Download Status Bar for use in PM26 and prior. A better fix, for both the Pale Moon user and the add-on's developer, is to change the bootstrap.js file in Download Status Bar (beginning with line 1384) as follows:

Code: Select all

		switch(Services.appinfo.name) {
			case "Pale Moon":
				if (appInfo.version<27) {						// this line added
					this.ff26above=false;
					DownloadBar.ff26above=false;
					this.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
					DownloadBar.windowtype = "navigator:browser";
				}													// this line added
			break;
After adding these two lines to bootstrap.js in DSB, DSB should continue to function normally in both PM26 and after updating Pale Moon to PM27.

Note that Firefox changed how downloads were handled in FF26. Pale Moon made similar changes, but not until PM27. So, PM version 26 required the old download process. And PM version 27 and FF version 26 required the new download process. Download add-ons which ignored differences between PM26 and FF26 broke in PM26, perhaps to work again in PM27. Add-ons like Download Status Bar, whose authors included code specifically for Pale Moon, now see their add-ons requiring a minor fix to continue to work in PM27.
