RPNet Helper allows RPNet members/subscribers easy download (or save to RPNet HDD) from any page on the internet or computer.
Its code is completely rewritten from the ground up with a slightly different concept (comparing to previous RPNet addons).
N.B. "Stay Logged In" must be selected on login for the addon to work.
RPNet Helper v2.0
RPNet Helper is rewritten as a WebExtension.
Works on both Firefox & Chrome
Option to Copy link to paste in Download Managers
AMO will not be accepting any non-WebExtension addons after version 53 (April 2017) and will disable all non-WebExtension addons after version 57 (Nov 2017)
Having problem passing the links to FlashGot to pass to Download Managers (Firefox only as Chrome doesn't have FlashGot)
I haven't added the keyboard short cut (I never used it myself, let me know if you need it)
Works on any site or local document with links, opened by the browser
Works with Text URLs, Hyperlinks and Right-Clicked single links
Grabs URLs from mixed text & Hyperlinks (exact selection not necessary)
You can even do a select all (Ctrl + a) to grab all links of a page.
Context menu and keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl +shift +F2) (v1.* only)
Context menu is disabled when not active
Link filtering for supported hosts which is automatically updated
Removes duplicate URLs
Requires Confirmation, displaying the selected links, before processing the links
Login is left to be handled by RPNet. If RPNet requests a login, the login page will be opened in a new tab so that user can log in. "Stay Logged In" must be selected on login for the addon to work
Displays RPNet notification of failed links
Displays connection failures and Server Errors
Direct Links generated by RPNet will be sent to your Download Manager via FlashGot (if installed) (v1.* only)
Localization (en-US for now until more are provided)
Option to save to HDD (Add-ons -> RPNet Helper -> Options)
Faster and more efficient RPNet API implementation (from v1.1)
Added FlashGot check plus option to save to HDD if not installed or not enabled (v1.3)
