Right, working again, thank you very much.
However I guess all the Addon devs that are starting the huge job to re-write a WebExtension build will stop maintaining the old versions that we need on PM. And it reveals that the current versions are often breaking with the next PM release, even if it is just increasing some maxVersion internally.

For me DTA 3.0.8 doesn't remember the last download directory between PM restarts, it always resets to the default path, so every time I need to choose the folder again. Can anybody confirm this?

Cannot confirm - everything updated with previous settings intact. With PM closed try deleting the downthemall.net folder in your profile directory which was newly created since 2.0.18.1.

Thank you. Did not help. Something is wrong on my side. The preference string "extensions.dta.directory" is not created and disappears after restart when created by hand.

How are you going about setting the download directory?

Are other Preference settings maintained after restart (no necessarily dTa settings)?

Do you have incrementally named prefs.js files in your Profile folder?
(Like prefs.js, prefs_1.js, prefs_2.js, ... or similar?)

Here's a copy of extensions.dta.* for comparison to see if something more than directory is missing if it's any help.

I use DownThemAll! Selection or Add Downloads dialog to browse for the directory. I can choose it and download to it but after restart it's forgotten, there is no dropdown list either.
Yes, it seems that other Preference settings are kept after restart.
I have only one prefs.js in my profile. All DTA prefs are saved there except extensions.dta.directory. There is no such string there at all.

It is important to mention the error in the Error Console when opening DTA window:

Error: uncaught exception: 2147500037
Source File: resource://gre/modules/DownloadIntegration.jsm
Line: 784

All this doesn't occur on clean profile. I tried to disable all other addons keeping DTA alone with no result.

My bad! privacy.clearOnShutdown.extensions-dta was set to 'true'. Fixed. It's OK now.
Thank you both for your help.

:shock: Commendable detection effort - buried layers deep within custom shutdown privacy options.

There is a checkbox for that in Clear History prefs. Didn't think that it also affects the path settings. Just checked it once for testing and completely forgot about it...

How to install (or where) that? If I go here it doesn't allow me to install it. Searching in the add-ons search bar shows nothing... do I have to manually install it? :(

Go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /versions/

Download 3.0.8. Find downloaded file; drag onto PM; install. Done.

Thanks. I actually ended up just 'right clicking' on that disabled button, selected "open in a new tab' and it installed :)

DownThemAll versions 3.0.7 and 3.0.8 have a bug that versions 3.0.6 and earlier do not have: Speed Limit Download does not work.
The unfortunate thing is that developers have possibly abandoned this extension, and there is no expectation that a version 3.0.9 might ever emerge.
I wanted to install version 3.0.6 on Pale Moon 28.1.0 (which does not have the bug quoted), but this version is not working properly on the latest version of Pale Moon.
And the version indicated for Pale Moon (2.0.18) has become unusable in version 28 of the browser.
I even downgrade the Moon Tester Tool to version 1.1.15, but it seems the problem really is with Pale Moon.

a) it is not the job of a browser to accommodate the needs of an extension; it is the other way round.
b) DTA 3.0.8 gives me precisely what I need in PM28

The original poster indicated that it was more important that the DTA extension works than having the latest version of Pale Moon.
I feel the same way. I only started using PM because DTA worked within it. I have also rolled back PM to 27.9.4 and DTA 2.0.18.1-signed.1-let-fixed is working again.
In fact, judging from Forum comments, many users came to PM because it worked with many extensions that broke when Firefox moved to WebExtensions.
If PM developers are not careful, they will lose these same users.
There's some nice detective work in this thread. I will test DTA 3.0.8 in PM28 and see. I hope it works...
