  1. When Download Master is run, it shows in a movable popup window and now the demonstrated popup underneath the button. Popup window includes nothing but "Loading the files list ...", a few generic advertisements, and a generic Google sites footer.

    1. Hi Matt, thanks for your comment. I've tested this version intensively and didn't see such a behaviour. Can you please specify on which website do encounter this issue? Does it work fine on other websites?

      Thanks in advance for you reply,
      Mona

    2. The same trouble here.
      Seems like a bug in the last version (3.0.1.1)
      I've tested on two sites and the one of them is:

      http://qt-project.org/downloads

    3. Hi sarbash, thanks for reporting this issue.

      I've used the latest 3.0.1.1 and the previous 2.0.2.0 version on the qt download site, both worked fine.
      Can you please give me more details, like operating system and the other site you ser this issue on.

      Thanks again,
      Mona

    5. There was something in chrome://flags which created that behavior. I removed all flags and runs ok, but I can't say exactly which one it was.

    6. Thanks for the feedback popein,
      could you please state all the flags you removed and I will do the elimination work.
      I wonder which flag has such an effect on my extension.

      Thanks, Mona

    7. I am running Windows 8, Chrome dev-channel as well as Torch (a Chromium-based build). I have tried it on various pages that include links, including a small HTML page I created with a single link to see if it would work. popein: what flags were there?

      Delete
    8. I'm running Ubuntu & Chromium, I'm experiencing the same bug. I turned off all the things in flags and still didn't fix the bug. Would be really nice to fix, I haven't found an alternative extension that works for my needs.

    9. I am experiencing the same issue where the download list pops up but it is empty and displays: "Loading the files list ..."

    10. I really hate web pages like this cause links they are giving are not working!!!! Luckily, I did some searching and FINALLY found the working and true file that you have been looking for! I'm in a great mood now so might as well share this to you.

      CLICK THIS LINK TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL WORKING FILE

  2. Thank you for the quick reply.

    You're right I had have to give specs at first place.

    OS: Debian 3.2.41-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Browser: Chromium 25.0.1364.152 Debian 7.0 (185281)

    Looks like DM won't work at all no matter what site is.
    For ex.:

    http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/6.0.7/amd64/iso-cd/

    1. Hi Sarbash.s

      I can't reproduce this on Ubuntu as well.
      Can you please drop me an email to monadikotita@gmail.com, I want to send you the previous version of Download Master to see if this is extension of browser issue.

      Thanks, Mona

    2. Hi, Mona.

      Still using the previous version. It has one little issue. It shows a list after second activation. First run acts like initialization but without a list. Second click makes the job. It's ok does not annoying me.

      Just tried the last version from chrome web-store. Still doesn't work.

      Linux debian 3.10-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.3-1 (2013-07-27) x86_64 GNU/Linux
      Chromium 28.0.1500.95 Debian jessie/sid (213514)

  3. I would love a feature that could detect the file type you are downloading and depending on that information, move the file to a specific folder.

    1. Thanks for the feature request,

      in order to control the download location I need to use Chrome Download API, which is still experimental but is planned to be released in couple of month by Google Chrome team.
      As soon as Download API will be released, I'll release Download Master with your request and others which depends on it.

      Stay tuned :)

      Thanks, Mona

    1. Thanks for your feedback Dambo29.
      Ohh man, I wish I could do that ages ago...
      Google release a new API for me to be able to do that hopefully in the coming months, then I'll be able to release a version with this "must feature".
      Will update here.

  7. The popup with advertisements effectively destroyed this program.

    Since it's a popup, it doesn't work in incognito mode and causes other problems.

    Please go back to the previous method.

    As you can see, you're getting many negative reviews because of this!

    1. Hey Nguyen, thank you very much for bringing this up.
      I care a lot about the quality of this extension and tested it really thoroughly. My testing include the incognito mode, I see it working fine (will probably need your feedback on that).
      monadikotita@gmail.com
      The popup with the advertisement is the only way for me to moneytize the project and keep it alive.
      Please send me some details over email or here on the bad behavior you encounter with Download Master in incognito mode.
      I'll try to fix the issue you see and send you a private fixed version.
      Also I'll try to find another way to budget the project without the pop up.

      Thanks a lot for you feedback.

  8. It would be nice if you could have the option to save the file with the link name instead of the name of the target.

    It would also be nice to be able to save my settings.

  10. It downloads only one image even I have selected multiple files.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Rather than approve every download I'd like the option to specify a download folder and have all the files in the current operation downloaded to that folder. Otherwise, problems are likely. For instance, just now a Save As dialog box opened, got keyboard focus, and irrecoverably lost its file name while I was touch typing. :-(

    I'd also like to have some simple scheduling to soften the load on servers; for example, initiate no more than 3-5 concurrent downloads, queueing others as necessary. These features are important when a web page has many dozens of downloadable files. But, already, life is easier. Thanks!

  12. Having benefit of more experience with DM, I find that what I earlier reported seems to be a one-off experience. The app generally displays properly and downloads 6-7 files at a time. That said, a folder option is necessary, IMO. My touch typing keeps ending up mangling dialog boxes that DM pops up during long download operations. Thanks again for a real time/effort saver. Cheers,

  13. "Failed - Server Problem" Is what i get when trying to download multiple pictures. FIXES?

  14. A checkbox for supporting the DOWNLOAD attribute on A links. 4chan renames uploaded files to serial numbers but retains the uploaded filename in this attribute.

    ReplyDelete
  15. A very great feature that should be included is the downloading of files by selecting them then right clicking then clicking on download with DM ((Something similar to the rectangle select on Microsoft Windows Paint)))
    This would be something that should be on the top of your list!!
    I also would like to know if you are arabic....

  16. A feature to set how many files are downloaded simultaneously/at a time. Trying to download many links usually causes the server to cut off further connections for a bit. So, a checkbox with "Download [__] files at a time" with a textbox or a dropdown to specify an amount from 1-10 or so.

  17. Hey guys,

    We've been reviewing different Chrome extensions and yours stood out as a great product.

    I wanted to introduce our Chrome extension monetization service (http://www.revjet.io/) as we thought it might be a good fit for Download Master. We help developers monetize by showing search ads, display ads, and coupons on other domains. Your app would remain ad-free as this all happens outside of your app's UI.

    Let me know if this is something that you might be interested in.

    Best,
    Greg

  18. I'm getting an error message when attempting to save settings. I changed the default download path.

    "C:\Users\\Downloads\DownloadAll" which exists.

    Message:

  19. Hi there. Can you tweak your program so it will recognize files that don't have an extension at all? I'm trying to mass-download a list of files, and some of them have extensions (and work just fine), but there are other files linked on the page that don't have extensions. (Instead of "file.doc" , it's just "file", and your program doesn't display them as an option to permit downloading. Thanks for your consideration!

  22. When I resize the column it works ok but it not save what I resized when I start the program again and use the default.

    I'd like to save all files with one click. Here I have to save file by file.
