If I open a downloaded file with doubleklick on the statusbar entry I get a popup "klick here to open". That sucks. Is there a way to disable this dialog and open the file directly? If not, please implement such a setting.

Is there a way to make the add-on not open a new tab when it is updated, I dislike when it takes focus when I am doing something? At least not take focus, or disable the tab option completely. Using HoldTab add-on, new tabs rarely ever take focus and don't load, so if it can work with that it would be great.

Hi guys:

I am still using Firefox 56.0.2 but S3 updated itself and can't roll it back to version 4.13, which is not available on AMO. Does anyone have a download link for it?

Thanks in advance.

If you install Classic Addons Archive from here https://github.com/JustOff/ca-archive/releases explained a bit more here https://github.com/JustOff/ca-archive and reviewed here https://www.trishtech.com/2018/10/use-o ... s-archive/ you can search classic addons archive, and old versions of Download Manager (S3) might be there. If you find extensions you want to keep you can save them to your computer instead of only installing them, often by right clicking. If you have backups of your old profiles, extensions installed in them often are in .xpi files in the profile. Many are named with the name of the extension, but some have a ID number which you can often google to see what extension it was. You can copy the xpi from the old profile and drag it into a running Firefox browser window to install it.

Thanks, indeed the S3 download manager is available on the Classic addons archive. As a side note, I was unable to install the classic addon archive straight forward, I had to download the xpi and install it as a temporary addon from about:debugging. Once there I could run the classic addon and install the addon I wanted to.

At https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/s3download-statusbar/ the first two links in the About section are redundant, since legacy add-on files are no longer served by AMO:

  • https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/s3download-statusbar/versions/4.13
  • https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/download-statusbar/

Corresponding URLs in the CAA:

  • caa:addon/download-statusbar
  • caa:addon/s3download-statusbar
