2.53.1 and download status extension

Helllo,


After upgrading from 2.49.4 to 2.53.1 the extension "Download Status Bar 15.0.0.1" stopped working.

I have tested that in both Seamonkey 2.53.1 32-bit and 64-bit builds.

Has anyone got this extension to work with Seamonkey 2.53.1 ?

The old downloads api was removed by mozilla. 2.53.1 switched to the 
jsdownloads api same as in Firefox (since around 26 I think).

Thanks FRG for the reply.

Actually, although the extension seems almost completely broken, somehow it got to intercept the downloaded file names
and (wrongly) put them in the bottom line of the Mail window (instead of the Browser window) which is completely odd,
and those downloaded items handling is also broken (right-click menu items do not work).

Now I am stuck between two choices: to upgrade just from 2.49.4 to 2.49.5 (to keep that extension working) or to go for 2.53.1
and not looking back (forgetting that extension, but per my initial testing 2.53.1 is significantly faster and compatible with more websites).

Anyway thanks for the excellent work !
