Pick of the Month: S3.Download Statusbar

View and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar. Despite its compact size, S3. Download Statusbar packs in more useful features than the standard download window. The fully customizable interface auto-hides when not in use, allowing full control without interruption.

Great add-on, a must have. The checksum verification is a blessing. Also thanks for good and fast support!”

Nominate your favorite add-ons!

Featured add-ons are selected by a community board made up of add-on developers, users, and fans. Board members change every six months, so there’s always an opportunity to participate. If you’re interested, please follow this blog and look out for invitations that we send out every six months.

If you’d like to nominate an add-on for featuring, please send it to amo-featured@mozilla.org for the board’s consideration. We welcome you to submit your own add-on!

    Your description of Free Memory wrongfully displays the one from Youtube Unblocker: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-unblocker/ (which, incidentally, had its Privacy Policy “sneakily” changed since version 0.5.6 — now removed from AMO, but available on the add-on’s official site –, though that’s another story).

    Are you sure that’s what Free Memory does? :-)

    and FT GraphiteGlow doesn’t really “Convert web pages into PDF files” (C’mon April Fools Day is over)

    Hi Amy,

    I submitted my add-on to be Featured but today I see that another add-on which copies most of my add-on has been featured instead.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/

    How can this happen? With all my respect, my add-on has better properties and statistics than other add-on.

    · My add-on is older than it. I published Dec, 12 2013 while the other was published Jan 2, 2014
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-status-bar/versions/1.1.18
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/versions/1.4

    · Most of the functions and ideas are copied from my add-on into that add-on.

    · My add-on has 172,000 users where it has 43,000 users
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-status-bar/
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/

    · My add-on has 193 reviews while it has 116 reviews
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-status-bar/#reviews
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/

    · My add-on has better support. My support forum has 69 pages while the other one has only 8 pages.

    · I sent over 100 updates for my add-on while the other has 12 updates.
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-status-bar/versions/
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/versions/

    I submitted according to this policy page and my add-on met all criteria required.
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/developers/docs/policies/recommended

    I am sorry but I can not understand why my add-on is not chosen as Featured while my add-on has better meet criteria. I was sleepless by days to code up the features user requested so they can use it as soon as possible. I can not accept someone to come up after me, copy me and get the title I deserved. This is so unfair.

    Cheers

      It appears that both of your add-ons were nominated for April, but S3.download statusbar received more votes from the community board. You’re welcome to nominate your add-on again though, and we’ll include it on the list for June.

    Sorry about the earlier mistakes in the post–it was inadvertently published before it was ready! It’s corrected now.

    how can I stop firefox from blocking add ons that I need to run my programs?

    It is hilarious to see Zalgiris Guruno complain about someone copying his work. Both of the new “Download status bars” copy the original. And by using the name, both are infringing on the copyright that is owned by the owners of Download Statusbar.

    Is the best.

    after actualization it is not possible to clear finished downloads (and hide) by double-clicking on download statusbar :-(
