My appologies if this is not the right area. My Downloads addon has gone missing in action. Not sure if this is the result of the latest upgrade 10.0.3.

I have flushed the cache, but not visible in the addons area at all. Weird.

Hi,

That's very strange. So you're saying if you do a browser find (ctrl+f or whatever) and search for download on the addon management page nothing shows up?

Oh, and was it installed before and it's now fully gone? And did you run the integrity check when upgrading and let it delete files? (although if it did somehow delete the download addon files that would be weird also). Just trying to narrow this down.

This is very weird indeed. Yes it was installed before the upgrade. Having a look in the directories via ftp, every downloads file has been removed. I am in the process of re-uploading them now. No idea what the downloads addon was removed from the server.

And the upgrader doesn't pickup on the files as being missing. Did an integrity check and i didn't check any files to be removed, but watched the downloads files being removed.

I can't explain it to be honest. The upgrader isn't normally involved in deleting stuff, I can only think of (or find in the code) a few very specific cases for specific files, or when the integrity checker is told to cleanup alien stuff (but that's not automatic).

I'm wondering if it was somehow something else in parallel, like an FTP client picking up on a queue of commands, or another user with admin access uninstalling the addon (for that though it should have still been on the list of the addons, albeit at the bottom as non-installed addons display underneath installed ones).
