RapidShare -- did you click something?

  • Announcement
  • Updated 5 years ago
Are you getting a "JavaScript" not installed error on RapidShare?

Are you getting the error after clicking the big round "Download" button?


(thanks to yuukosakura for the screen-capture)

Were you surprised that the big round "Download" button showed up, instead of a cute-n-cuddly* SkipScreen message about automating the wait?

Well, we were also surprised.

Something changed in RapidShare's HTML, and the bits that SkipScreen tries to find to use for replace the download button are no longer there. SkipScreen is still automating the wait for you -- check out the countdown in the window title, and the SkipScreen message in the lower-left.

And in the meantime, while we're working on getting rid of that big round "Download" button -- just stop clicking on it, and go find more things to download with SkipScreen!

*hey! we're cute-n-cuddly! My mom said so!

zool -- could you move this into it's own GetSatisfaction thread? It's a good topic, but this message is purely about the Javascript-error/Download-button issue.

So you just do nothing ?? How long do you have to wait ? I don't remember having to wait before when SS and RS worked together.

That's a good idea ZOOL proposed. If he hasn't added it to the relevant section i'm going to do it for him.

"The first thing that you learn is that you always have to wait."

But SkipScreen does the waiting for you.

Seriously, SS has never been able to skip RS wait times, we were just managing the display better in the past. We've got a release in the works that has a fix for this.

Yeah. I noticed that on the FF tab but when i started using SS(probably last 2 weeks), i could click the download button and immediately download. After several days later, it won't work and i had to wait. Thanks for the new update.
@Andy. Thanks. You could added it to the thread section. I didn't noticed it because i'm still new here.

A release with a fixed version has been submitted to AMO, and is awaiting approval.

Hey SkipScreen is not working on easyshare.com & hotfile.com

That's important, but has nothing to do with the RapidShare issue this thread is about.

Kabeshan, this thread is about RapidShare. Hotfile issues should be in another thread; EasyShare is not currently supported by SkipScreen.

Hey All,

I have a similar error:

"Error
You want to download the following file:

http://rapidshare.com/files/254062792... | 27296 KB

The download cannot be provided. Please check, if your browser supports Javascript."

I did get the green bar. I also get the big round download button.

I was able to get a true Windows download dialogue box when I clicked Back on the browse from the error screen.

Thanks!

That looks pretty similar. Did you click download? Do you have NoScript installed?
