  • Update?

  • @pinheadlucas Right now the Opera website doesn't let me update the extension, because it says the opus file type is a an invalid type (IIRC I tried wav and ogg vorbis formats too, which were rejected as well). The Firefox add-ons site and the Chrome WebStore do not impose such a restriction. I believe the Opera developers merely forgot to whitelist this benign file type.
    I reported the issue to Opera, of course, as DNAWIZ-73448.
    https://github.com/downthemall/downthemall/issues/125

    I was waiting for a response and fix from Opera (which I guess should be as easy as adding opus to some list), but so far nothing. Since it has been about 20 days since I reported the issue and nothing has happened, I will now add a work-around where I just remove the "play sounds" feature completely from the Opera version. This will take some time, so it will be ready maybe this weekend.

  • 👌 thanks

  • 4.2.3 (with sounds removed, to work around the opera website issue) was approved now. Yay!

  • Finally, Thank you so much :). I'm glad you came back

  • @nmaier
    First of all: many thanks for your great extension ! Like many others I am very happy it is back again. Some extensions are a 'must', this is one of them.

    It works fine, but I do have one question or possible feature request(?)

    If 'batch' downloading a number of files (for instance, multiple PDFs), I have to click on the [Save] button for each and every file.
    Is there a way to really.. 'download them all' with 1 hit?
    Maybe I am overlooking an option?

    Thanks.

  • I am very glad that you are back, a very useful and convenient addition, thank you very much !!! Have a good time!

  • @mopw69: yes!! this would be great!!

  • Welcome to Opera ! Just donated after seeing this, had previously donated as a longtime FireFox user. Still using this great extension (the pre-WE ver.) there, mainly with FF Legacy 5290. I recall reading though the DTA blogs, re all the travails with the new add-ons architecture, and the doubts as to whether DTA could continue at all. I'm sure glad that it did ! I really don't like -- at all -- many of the things Mozilla has been doing with FF, after 5290. They seem to be doing all they can to ruin it. In any case, Opera has shown itself to be superior in several areas, such as the odds of being able to actually print out what you see onscreen, in a complete and ungarbled fashion.

    I do hope that you can be more responsive to user queries or comments than seemed to be the case in the past.

  • Thank You for this awesome plugin! I will send donate soon. I know this plugin from Firefox.
    Great Job!

  • Update pls

  • Tried to post a bug report for the Opera extension version, on the appropriate bug-tracker page, but for some reason it did not post. I did install the new Opera extension, which shows up under their Extensions, but it seems to do nothing. It won't trigger DTA in a download situation (as one of the options), whereas the Windows extension for FireFox always worked, at least up through that final 5290 Legacy release of FF. Looking for some help in getting the extension for Opera to work that way also. As I noted earlier, I had donated previously for the Windows extension, and would do so again for this new one -- if I can get it to actually work.
