  • (2021-06-16) R. Daneel Olivaw: Works well for its stated purpose, but at some point I noticed it intermittently interfering with other download-related extensions. Most specifically, at present it seems to interfere with extensions that rename/move files during/after download, such as DownThemAll which grabs link details for extended file naming options. It also completely prevents DTA (and others) from downloading to subfolders, which is likely the same root cause. While extensions are limited to using the profile's Downloads folder per Chrome security policy, there are no restrictions within that folder. I have successfully tested all functions mentioned here without this extension installed, so it seems this extension is the only cause of these problems and there are no secondary/compounding factors. To fix it: The extension either needs a more specific automatic filter/mechanism or, if the circumstances/API doesn't allow for an automatic/programmatic fix, then possibly just a manual whitelist, like a short list with buttons to add specific scopes, like "run on this domain" etc. and a default exit/ignore if the current site/IP/range/etc isn't on there. Looking at the code, it uses a simple regex filter of "^viewer\.jnlp" to ID files, which should be fine as most file names wouldn't contain that string, so I can only guess that the issue is that the extension running on every single download is causing conflicts, meaning it should be limited in some other way, like my suggested whitelist. For reference, the red error message seen on the Chrome extensions page (main list or single extension page) after a conflict: """ This extension failed to name the download "" because another extension (Fix IDRAC .jnlp file) determined a different filename "". """

  • (2020-12-29) Dustin Travis: I love you Craig! As for Dell, you guys are horrible people.
  • (2020-11-22) Justin Buchanan: Saves the ballache every time we needed to access the DRAC. We still needed to add https://IpOfServer exclusion on ControlPanel/Java/Security too.
  • (2020-04-05) Tony Pellegrini: The extension I didn't know I needed! Of course I've been annoyed by this forever, but just dealt with it. Now I don't have to.Thanks!
