Download Helper no longer shows up in Fire Fox's Download Screen.


Firefox just automatically downloaded/updated Download Helper Ver 4.9.13 the other day and something weird happened. It still links and downloads Video's off the web just fine but it doesn't show up in the Firefox Download list. The animated Icon in windows 7 shows the progress of the download but nothing else, so the problem there is I have no idea how fast the download is nor do I see multiple downloads progress.

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502
  • 5.1.10516.0
  • DivX VOD Helper Plug-in
  • Office Authorization plug-in for NPAPI browsers


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20130109 Firefox/21.0

You are running Firefox nightly version 21.0 as reported with your question. (Video) Download Helper 4.9.13 is currently compatible with Firefox 3.0 - 20.0a1.

You need to report that problem to the developer - http://www.downloadhelper.net/support-expert.php

Quite honestly, you're better off sticking with the Firefox release versions (current is 18.0) or Beta when you are using add-ons such as that.
