For previous versions of Firefox and Chrome even, life was seamlessly smooth about my cozy style of having Wget and Curl intercept downloads in my browsers with a flashgot extension installed. But all these went south after the new upgrades to the Firefox Quantum and now I can't have wget or curl intercept any of the downloads except the boring built-in download manager from Firefox. Does anyone have a fix or a working tweak to this lag? Thanks.

  • Don't use Quantum. Anything up to Version 54.0.1 should be compatible. If you are worried about bug fixes, there are also the Extended Support Release versions (currently 52.3, I believe). – Anaksunaman Dec 29 '17 at 12:57
  • I am using elementary os loki and firefox was updated to quantum. There is no point downgrading all in the name of flashgot extension. I think I will wait till a version compatible is released for quantum and above. Thank you @Anaksunaman – Mr One ZED Dec 30 '17 at 13:11
  • Not a problem. Genuinely hope you don't have to wait too long. I have a few extensions myself I am crossing my fingers will be updated soon as well. =) – Anaksunaman Dec 30 '17 at 13:13
  • We can only hope. – Mr One ZED Dec 30 '17 at 13:55

I have read somewhere that the Flashgot developers are yet to roll out a version compatible for Firefox Quantum and future releases. So, the best fix now is to wait till that is done. Thank y'all.

As stated here, Flashgot should be fixed only after Noscript (by the same author).

I see Noscript is fixed now. Flashgot should follow.
