Can you add support for [hosting.com]?
Yes! (Though maybe not right away). When you contact us or post a request to getsatisfaction we add these sites to our list and prioritize (mostly) based on the number of requests from users. So if you have a site you want support for, make your voice heard.
Right now, our priorities for new sites are: hotfile, easy-share, 4shared, and uploading.com, roughly in that order.
Hey, Rapidshare still makes me wait, what gives?
You can “click-and-forget”… for me that’s the important thing. And… you can click multiple links at once, and SkipScreen will auto-reload periodically until Rapidshare lets each one start downloading.
Help!? I think I found a bug!
SkipScreen’s behavior on [hosting.com] is annoying me! Can I shut it off, just for that site?
Yes! Just follow these steps:
- Make sure you’re running the latest version (some older versions don’t have preferences).
- Click on “Tools” in the Firefox top menu bar — click on “SkipScreen” — Click on “Options”
- Uncheck the box next to the site (or feature) you want to turn off.
- That’s it! Close all the windows and keep on skipping!
Are the links I download made public anywhere?
I love SkipScreen! How can I help?
There are four ways you can help:
- Tell your friends. Like, all your friends. Most people who try Skipscreen love it instantly… we’ve just got to spread the word.
Does it work as a manager as well? Like, can we put a series of links to be downloaded in row?
Since some sites have download limits and prohibit simultaneous delays, SkipScreen will automatically reload those pages–so multiple tabs will download one after another.
Rapidshare forces me to wait 15 minutes after my first download when I’m using SkipScreen. What gives?
That’s not SkipScreen, that’s Rapidshare. As far as we know, Rapidshare does not behave any differently for SkipScreen users, but they do impose a 15 minute wait after you reach their limit (a hundred megs or so).
Hey, where’s the XPI?
If our site offers you the exe installer, you can always get to the XPI installer by clicking the “other platforms” link below the download button on our home page.
How do I remove this toolbar thing?
We offer an optional toolbar to some users. If you install it by mistake, you can remove it by going to Tools > Addons > Extensions > Search Toolar > Uninstall and you can change back to the default search by following these instructions.
In IE you can go here: Tools > Toolbars > Bingtoolbar and disable it. If you want to completely remove the toolbar, go to Add/Remove programs and look for ‘Bing Toolbar’ or ‘Search Toolbar’ and click remove. You can also download the uninstaller.
