Here is my code: I have gone through your code but unfortunately I'm not really familiar with the requests module.
I do think your code looks fine and should work great but from the little I know I think the problem with your code is you only write some part of the files content. In your for loop. I think only the chunk part is written not all of it. I think a solution to your problem might be to use a while loop something like this:. Like I said I am not familiar with the requests module so I can't really help you there but I hope you understand my point.

Well, this is my first article so if it sucks tell me Story Time Well, story time Step 1: Import the Modules So this typically parses the webpage and downloads all the pdfs in it.
Great article! The downloading items are now visible in the downloads tab of the popup; you can manage this list in the usual manner pause, resume, open or remove individual items etc Question 2.
How about other alternative workflows? Answer The general idea of the extension is to collect links to the resources list with optional filtering and finally to add checked items to the download queue. The collecting stage has many variations: using the web page context-menu: you can right-click individual links from the web page or a larger selected text region using the special tabs dialog; here you can collect links from active tab all tabs right tabs left tabs and even decide if the collected links must be immediately downloaded or if the associated tabs must be finally closed.
The resource list has too many links and I find it difficult to recognize the wanted ones!
Answer By default, the resource list displays the estimated filenames of the collected links. These names are usually different from those displayed on the web page. There are many possible strategies here: If the desired items are images, it may be better to use the thumbnails view there is a special toggle button for this.
If you know the file extensions of the desired items, you can use this info for the extensions filter box.
Sometimes it may be better to select a text zone on the web page including relevant links and use the context menu to extract only links from this selected text range.
More generally, it's important to know that every item has some textual info associated to it. Or simpler, all: word if you are not sure where the word comes from.
Every item in the resource list can be right-clicked and this will reveal an informative popup will all info known for that item. Question 4.
How to set a custom download directory? Answer On the resource list tab, there is a directory input field. Here the user can set a download directory.
Please note that every such directory is defined only relative to the default download directory this is a web extensions security limitation , so you can define only subdirectories of this main directory. Another thing you can do is to use the general browser settings to change the location of this default download directory. Also, the user can prepare a custom favorite folders list see extension's options, the Download directories section.
Once defined, this list will be available via autocomplete or simply by double-clicking this text field. Question 5. Why there are two add to queue buttons?
Answer After checking some items from the resource list you can decide to send them either to the active queue, either to the passive queue using the corresponding buttons. Sending to the active queue means that downloading starts immediately or as soon as possible. This is the best option if you are content with the default names or don't care too much about that.
On the other hand, sometimes it's better to rename queued items before starting downloading them. This can be done either individually using the edit button associated with every item from download list or in batch mode using the multi-rename dialog Question 6. I want to download some files from the resource list but I don't like the filenames used there.
On the original web page, they had other, better names. How to change that? But if the user clicks the name header of the resources table, he will be able to choose another attribute url, title, text, alt text for the actual displaying.
The most obvious candidate is the text attribute; that usually corresponds to what the user sees on the web page. Sending to the queue will preserve this displayed mask.
But once the items are added to the queue not for immediate downloading , it's possible to rename them in more advanced ways. You can select some items and use the available multi-rename dialog for batch renaming them. Here you can set a common name mask using many types of available masks, and combine them in various ways. Your extension is not capable to download embedded videos.
Answer My extension is, indeed, not designed to download embedded videos or streaming media but only normal, direct links. The main reason is that these extensions are most exposed to all sorts of legal issues and I don't want my extension to be taken down.
Though, in the future, it's possible to add some more support for these types. Question 8. Your extension is not capable to download files from sites X, Y, Z
