Hi there

since I upgraded to Chrome Beta 79, I have problems with the login for the premium downloader. I have to enter the login credentials each time I want to download. Before Chrome Beta 79, I had to provide the login credentials only once in a session. I guess this has something to do with the increased security in cookie handling, described in https://www.chromium.org/updates/same-site. This change will break many websites (inlcuding, amongst others Microsoft Azure) and requires small changes in the cookie handling. It would be great if someone could have a look at this before the new behaviour becomes standard in Chrome 80.

I had this problem a few months ago with Firefox. I deleted all cookies, site data, and cache and it fixed the problem. I know it's inconvenient, but try this first.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a zombie on the hunt for brians is in need of an editor.

unfortunately this didn't help. The September 30 entry of https://www.chromium.org/updates/same-site describes how to test the behaviour with the new security. I used this information to temporary disable the added security measures and it works again. Looks like someone really needs to have a look at the cookie attributes `SameSite=None` and `Secure`.

Dropapk is currently working, might have been temporary.



Just for info: at the time of writing Dropapk via Primium Download is completely down for me - had issues for days already.... Direct download from dropapk works fine....

@mookrhodan I PMed the owner of the Dropapk, the issue appears to be on their side as logging in is currently down. Instead of downloading immediately you just get an empty grey screen in the Premium Downloader's window.

Thanks a million!

I'm having a similar problem. Download sits at "waiting for mblservices.org" then quits after a minute or so. I've tried three different browsers with my VPN running. Still the same results.

dropapk does not work with my premium subscription. And many new books seem to be stored there as the only premium site. When I click on the blue arrow, nothing happens. At this point this greatly diminishes the value of premium membership

There is nothing we can do about this. It is an issue that must be fixed on Dropapk's side and we have contacted them in regards to this. If you'd like to see for yourself what the problem is, create a free account on Dropapk, log in, and click on My Account at the top. Whenever the Premium Downloader fails to work, you will also fail to get to the My Account page (it will time out or take a very long time).

Still not working for premium downloads, for me anyway. Still the same message that there's a problem with this file host.

Regarding Dropapk, if I click on it and leave it alone for awhile, it usually downloads. It may take a couple of minutes, but it does work.

Update on Dropapk: the owner told me that he will be moving some of the files to different servers to reduce the load and that he will keep me updated when this happens. We think it makes sense to wait until the issue is resolved rather than remove it from our supported filehosts entirely, for now.

Dropapk does not work and has not worked for several days. And it seems that many new books are stored there. It should be removed from the list for premium download.
