Pale Moon add-on that does what the linked Firefox add-on does

Post by Zero3K » 2019-08-23, 12:58

It would be nice if someone could make a Pale Moon compatible add-on that does what the add-on available at https://github.com/erickutcher/httpdown ... bExtension does.

Since the repo doesn't even have a readme or any other kind of detailed description what this supposedly does, that's going to be hard ;)

Looks to just be a downloader add-on, like DownThemAll or Turbo Downloader.

Its an Add-on that integrates HTTP Downloader with Firefox. You can see HTTP Downloader's source and download a binary of it by going to https://github.com/erickutcher/httpdownloader.

See if you can interface HTTP Downloader (site; pictures, description) with/through FlashGot.

Code: Select all

Only if your download manager is not in the list, and it supports command line parameters, you can Add it (see screenshot), providing its executable path and an arguments template. The latter can include these Placeholders, which will be translated into their actual values at download time:

    [URL] - the URL of the current link
    [REFERER] - the URL of the document containing current link
    [COOKIE] - cookie info for the current link
    [FOLDER] - the folder where user wants to save its download (it will be asked with a dialog if Firefox|Tools|Options|Download|Ask me where to save every file is checked).
    [POST] - data to be sent with POST request if a form button has triggered this download
    [ULIST] - expands to all the URLs to be downloaded, space separated
    [UFILE] - path to a file containing the URLs to be downloaded, one per line
    [CFILE] - path to the cookie.txt file for the current profile
    [FNAME] - guessed filename for multimedia download (usually extrapolated from the title)

I know, its just that FlashGot doesn't automatically intercept the downloads. I still have to click on OK in order to get it to forward the link to HTTP Downloader.

Off-topic:
In FlashGot... In the simplest sense:
General -> Add (Download Manager)
Name: HTTP_Downloader
-> point to location of, HTTP_Downloader.exe
Command line arguments: --url [URL]

That's it.

Right-click a link (context-menu), FlashGot Link (or Selection or All or Tabs ...) & down it should come, theoretically.

You'd want to set HTTP Downloader (Options) to Single Instance (otherwise a new downloader would open for each link).

That said, HTTP Downloader blows up (crashes) on my end, XP.
So certainly not robust, for me.

The developer of the add-on and HTTP Downloader wrote how the add-on works at https://github.com/erickutcher/httpdown ... -526782457.

Perhaps that someone should be you? ;) Regardless of whether you'd say you're "not a programmer" or something to that effect, learn.

For as much of a meme as it was when it was first released, it's actually quite effective as a motivational video. I've used it, or variations of it several times in the past.

What about this?
Drag and drop links into the program's main window or, select File > Add URL(s)... to bring up the Add URL(s) window.

That doesn't help at all.
