Default Browser Web Extension not sending downloads to JDownloader

Hello everyone,

Recently, I was looking for a way to conveniently send links to JDownloader, so I setup my configuration my My JDownloader which works great.

I looked into the Browser Extensions and I installed and tested on both Chrome and Edge browsers. https://my.jdownloader.org/apps/

I am able to login to the extension, and even see my JDownloader instance and seemingly connect to it, but the problem is - all of the links I try to send don't seem to work!

Essentially, the setup piece seems to work at least from what it looks like on my end, and it even appears that links send - but clearly they don't or something is happening in the middle of things.

Just wanted to pass this along - and I can try to provide more information or troubleshoot if necessary - thanks!

@boktai1000: The extension simply doesn't support this feature. There is another 3rd party extension for this, that intercept downloads from browser and forward to JDownloader. Normally you should not initiate downloads by yourself but only add the links and let JDownloader do the rest. It's a planned feature for next version/extension

Okay, interesting. If you don't mind me asking, what does the Browser Extension actually do currently? I'll be looking forward to the next version or extension then - thank you very much for the prompt reply!

@boktai1000: the extension can be used to intercept ClickAndLoad from websites and forward to JDownloader. Also you can add links from websites via rightclick context menu or add clipboard content. Also start/stop downloads. And most important, it is required in order to handle captcha challenges like Recaptcha or HCaptcha.
