  • 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.

  • this addon is a bit of a mess... if u click "oneclick" it opens a certain window, if you click "downthemall!" it opens the same window..
    just clutterful and confusing

  • A follow-up to my post of 5 months ago. I worked out how to have this extension do something in Opera, though it under a fully manual control. From a Right Click context menu, I open a separate small window with 'Add Download',. then input the download URL from a clipboard Copy. (In these cases, one must first be properly logged into the site in question, in order to be able to download at all.) This gets a DTA download going.

    What remains to be answered is: WHY this strictly manual approach, when under the aforementioned legacy FireFox DTA initiates the requested download automatically, in effect intercepting the download request that the browser would ordinarily offer to do. That is a smoother, preferred behavior that I had long been used to.
    Also, Why is the DTA download under Opera so abysmally Slow ?? We're talking a low kb/s vs. a decent MB/s that I typically got under the old FireFox.

    Perhaps there are some valid reasons, and I'd love to hear about from the developers.

  • Очень неудобно! Постоянно приходится нажимать «сохранить» кнопку. И так каждый файл. А если качается весь сайт, то придётся нажимать «сохранить» сотни раз.

  • @kon7525ru-0: Чтобы этого не происходило, нужно выключить опцию в настройках, что-то вроде "Спрашивать каждый раз куда сохранить файл". Эта опция находится там же, где настраивается путь к downloads фолдеру.

  • Useless, because the clipboard is not evaluated, as it is the case in JDownloader. Without this function a downloader is meaningless.

  • Dead?

  • @pinheadlucas

    Depends what you mean by "dead." The functionality of the Opera version seems to be sorely limited . . . and I'm guessing that would likewise hold true for the contemporary FireFox edition. I continue to use the old-extensions-architecture version of DTA in a FireFox Legacy 5290 setup, where it mostly continues to work as it always did. Some sites tell me that this browser is outdated or no longer supported, but I'm able to ignore the warning and proceed. An exception would be in cases where the file to be downloaded exceeds somewhere around 1.7 GB, and DownThemAll will then just quickly download a useless HTML info file. I'm not sure why, and don't recall that being a regular problem back when these programs were still considered current. In Win-10, some of the controls for that old FireFox do not display, but I've found shortcut workarounds. When you have a tool you like that is still at least fairly useful, you do what you must to be able to keep on using it.

  • Does It Work On YouTube ??

  • @flipmode

    I don't think so. I think your best bets for YT downloading are either TubeDigger or Allavsoft Downloader (both paid programs), although TD is cheap with uncommonly generous license terms, and the Allavsoft turns up once in a rare while as a free promo, with a one-year license.

  • How can I get processed multiple urls (in a similar way to "DownthemAll - all tabs") to scan in batch mode, but picking them from clipboard or a list in text file?
