Hi
Thank you so much for this awesome addon. It is not working well in the latest 56.0a1 nightly (which is so fast!!). Basically the bar itself comes up but its blank, nothing can be cleared off of it or seen on it. Is there a version to download for 56.0a1? Thank you muchly.

Hi,

I've been using your addon for a while and it's really great. Tiny request though, your addon only partitially works in combination with the 'Private Tab'-addon ( https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/a ... src=search ). The download bar in a private tab doesn't show but the download sound plays so your addon is active somehow. When I open a regular private tab without help of the Private Tab addon, everything works fine though. Is it possible you could make your addon work in combination with the Private Tab addon?

Regards

Rigido

I really hope the author will port it to Web Extensions, it will be a sad loss if he doesn't :(

Hello everyone!
I love this extension but it's unfortunately no longer functional with Firefox 57.
I am currently developing a version for Firefox 57 with the main features that I use.
I'll let you know if I get there. :wink:

Sounds great, I look forward to it! I like being able to rename, run or delete downloads right from the status bar. The color customizations were cool too, hope you're able/willing to include those.

I started developing it for ten hours.

there is a lot of work to have some things stable to start (with few features at first).

I could already put the beginning of what I started doing on github if some are motivated :D

Hi,

I have bad news.
The new WebExtentions APIs no longer allow access to downloads from a horizontal bar at the bottom of the window.
I started by developing a bar in HTML / CSS that communicated with a JavaScript script in background to make calls to the downloads API but I just encountered some restrictions, especially for the file download, which requires going through a sidebar, a context menu or a menu icon.

If I continue the developments, it would be necessary to go through one of the "official" features of Firefox : toolbar button with popup, page action on address bar, sidebar, context menu or bundled web pages https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add ... _practices

The only way to add content on the bottom is "content script" but the download API is not allow, and developer tools panels but isn't a good option for me.

If you have an opinion :wink:

Hi,

Will you recode the great Download Status Bar to new Firefox Quantum version?

Thanks,
Tibor

This is probably one of the reasons Szalgiris has said that there is a lot of work to continue this extension and he wouldn't have the time to do it.

Read something like that.So if we can´t have it at the bottom what about the sidebar? That´s not that perfect like at the bottom but if you stack the downloads one over the other and use the known colour schemes it´s better than nothing. The worst part for me is that I don´t see my downloads in FF, just a tiny arrow that´s getting blue.
For bigger downloads I use JDownloader but I think it´s not necessary to start a 3rd party app for everything I want to download.
I would appreciate something like that. So it would be Download Sidebar instead of Download Status Bar. What do you think?
