Add-On Out Dated

Good day. I have a question for Firefox add-on's wed site. An add-on is out dated, or there is a problem with the add-on. You try to contact the add-on's writer, but there is no contact information in their profile page, and the home page information is no good. Is there a way for the web site administrators to contact the writer?

With the many add-ons listed in your initial question, it may help to answer your question if you would please provide the name of the add-on causing the problem.

Currently, I want to know about Download Sort 2.5.8 There are other add-ons with small problems but that;s for later.

Where are you being informed that it is out of date? The version that you have is the most current available.

The last update to Download Sort was almost 5 years ago (Version 2.5.8 Released August 26, 2008). I, too, can find no reference to current activity or information about the developer. My opinion: The developer has abandoned the project.

What site is asking you to pay per your post in the comment section on that add-on page?

Here is a possible alternative that seems to do roughly the same thing - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/automatic-save-folder/

  • It is more currently maintained
  • Click on "Add-on home page" in the right margin to see more information and links to support and forum for the add-on

You can try searching the add-ons site for other possibilities

Forgot to include this. Here is a link to the AMO Forum. I am not sure that you will find help there if you want to keep Download Sort, but you can try.

I checked the web page that was inside the add-on; http://downloadstatusbar.mozdev.org/downsort/. The last enter is for [Oct 05, 2005] <Version 2.5.7> My version is 2.5.8, so I assume the web page is out of date. This web page has a link to; <Comments or Questions?> This takes you to a page that redirects you to; <dlstatusbar.proboards.com> After having to create an account and logging in, you will find this; Ad-Free__ Our ad-free service is a monthly service offered at $7.00 per 50,000 page views per calendar month.

I looked over the page for Automatic Save Folder 1.0.4 . Unfortunately, the users are reporting problems with the current Firefox, so I'll wait and see.

Download Sort

  1. One question remains on Download Sort that I previously posted above:
    • Where are you being informed that it is out of date? The version that you have is the most current available.
  2. I did not want to create an account at http://dlstatusbar.proboards.com/ , therefore, I did not see the information that you referenced concerning a paid version.

Automatic Save Folder

  • All too frequently only users experiencing problems post in the add-on page comments section. Note that there have been 7,041 dowloads, only 111 reviews (just over 1.5%). The add-on has an overall 4 star rating by users, out of 5 stars. Just a suggestion follows. You could always install it after uninstalling Download Sort and see if you experience problems -- you may not. If you do experience problems, then uninstall it and reinstall Download Sort.
  • Also, in the forum for the add-on, http://asf.mangaheart.org/?menu=5 , "Development and bug report", makes mention of problems being fixed in what appears to be the development of version 1.0.5 and changes that are being made to address problems reported. I have been unable to find a way to download the development version for testing.
