Problems Downloading Subtitles?

22 posts in this topic

Lately there have been some complains about you not being able to download subtitles.
IF CLICKING ON DOWNLOAD gets you back to the episode page, read below:

If you're using Firefox type about:config in the address bar.
It will ask you to be careful, so please try to.

There is a Filter field you'll paste the following in: http.sendreferer
It will bring back 1 result: http.sendRefererHeader, an Integer with status "default".

Double click it and change its value to 2.
Close the about:config tab and try to download again. It should work!
If it doesn't try restarting your browser.


Long story short, the server asks your browser where does it come from - what website -. If the value is 0, the browser refuses to respond so the server doesn't serve the file.
If the value is 2, your browser will tell the server it clicked "Download" from Addic7ed (and not another website) so the file is served and you can download it.

Hope it works!

Thanks for explaining!

But what does this setting do for other websites? Can it cause any harm?

Shouldn't cause any harm.. since this is only to inform the websites where you are coming from.
You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_referrer

Strange. This happens to me all the time not only on addic7ed download pushbuttons (this happens on multi-download but doesnt happen on download text links) but also on almost all forms that send the data to another page, so i have to go back and click it again. it's like the form isnt submitted. any ideas?
Thing is that the value of this variable is already set to 2.

Thanks for the info but it's always changing back to the default value which is 0. How can I save the new value ?

The referrer code is only in place on download stuff. I'm not sure why other forms would be affected, can you give me an example?

okay, take this forum for example.

When I make a new post [not using quick reply] and wait for a long time [more than 15 min average] in the post page, when i submit the post, it will probably not submit the form and take me to the default page that has been pre-set in server's settings for the site's subdomain or subfolder where the form page is located [on the server].

However, the form to edit my post that does not change or reload the active document [in order to submit the form] will be submitted normally no matter what.

Strangely, the only sites that work no matter what, are facebook and gmail (not absolutelly sure about gmail though).


If you have any idea please help me, I cannot fid a solution, not even in firefox support forums. I use FF 3.6

I tried to use both methods (Alex28 & Zozone) and both failed because the value goes back to 0. Is it possible that the file with all these parameters is in read only ? And how can I solve this ?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry, it seems i was too happy to share something fixing the problem, but i noticed just today that it works "for a few seconds" only.... so if you are a fast clicker it's okay lol....
No seriously, anyone with a sustainable solution please ?

After edit the value in the about:config, Firefox "should" remember the setting new value...

In any case, you also can edit the value manually:

Edit this file with Notepad (or any other text editor) -> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs\all.js"

Look for (inside that file):

// Headers
pref("network.http.accept.default", "text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8");
pref("network.http.sendRefererHeader", 2); // 0=don't send any, 1=send only on clicks, 2=send on image requests as well

Change it to 2, and then save the file.

Post here if this works, please.

Thank's for the fast answer, but it's kinda weird...

When i open all.js, the sendRefereHeader's value is already 2 whereas in about:config it's 0 (yes i've restarted mozilla)... so it's still the same :(

Thank's anyway

Same here !

Maybe it will help if I say that this problem started right after the strike. Before that, it was working just fine.
Thanks for helping

Then it's probably that some plug-in/Extension it's changing it back to 0 every time...

Hello everybody !

About this hellish value that keep changing back to 0, I found a (the) solution thanks to another forum.

The problem came from Illimitux 4.0.
The option "Deactivate the referer" (on the line under "MegaVideo") in the Platforms tag has to be unchecked.

I hope my explanation is clear enough because the terms are an approximative translation from french.

Honestly, have no idea on why you're having that issue. Maybe an addin?
