The FTP protocol is finally deprecated in Firefox and Chrome...

...so the FTP download links don't work any more (at least in these browsers).

Furthermore, if a download link points to a http:// page, it also fails (at least in my Chrome).

Just so you know.

I don't have high hopes, but it would be cool if this would be fixed.

Yeah got it, but can't this be fixed on the site so the people don't have to mess with browser flags or whatever to download a file?

That fix would be to serve some other protocol than FTP instead. Something that is deemed secure enough by current standards.

And i thought we are getting rid of external links alltogether. Silly me.

That would be the best, indeed.

What's with that anyway, is 100GB storage so expensive?

I think commenting out the code to create external links is too tricky :)

No.

If people chose to host their files somewhere that's only accessible by a now deprecated protocol the only way that can be "fixed" now is to copy the file to somewhere else.

Feel like uploading some files for a bunch of unlocked entries? :D

I'd say disabling the external linking is step one. Before that happens... futile exercise

That could be very easily automated. Isn't CSDb already hosting a huge amount of downloadable files on its server?

But forget it, I'll just change my flags in the browser or use a download manager to download products which only have an ftp link... *sigh*
