What do you mean here? There is no add-on bar in Australis, so either this is another add-on, or you mean the nav-bar, I guess? Please clarify.

Sorry, I meant the Australis toolbar (in the space to the right of the AwesomeBar and search box).

Hm, this add-on implement's it's own binding for a menu-button. So I'm assuming it's an issue on the add-on's side.

Tried contacting the developer again. I haven't marked the add-on as incompatible yet because of its massive audience and the available workaround (using the main menu).
Sorry, i completely missed this issue and discover it right now.

I am working on a full rewrite of Video DownloadHelper which probably don't have this issue, but it certainly won't be ready for the launch of 29 as beta, so i need to release another last update of this addon old code base. It's now at the top of my TODO list.
I now have a fix for this button issue on Firefox 29. It can be tested from http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=4.9.22b1

I could submit version 4.9.22 very soon but i would like to take this opportunity to fix an issue due to a recent youtube change. Is it ok if i submit the new version on Monday ?
My preference is that the Australis bug is fixed as soon as possible. There seems to be close to a million users who will run into this problem soon, and we want the Australis transition to be as smooth as possible.

Having said that, Monday isn't terribly unreasonable.
Can we negociate to Sunday ? :) But i'm not sure an editor will be available to approve the update on Sunday.
Version 4.9.22 is available here: http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=4.9.22

However, i haven't been able submit it to amo. It failed 3 times at the validating stage: 

"""
Your add-on failed validation with 1 error.

There was a problem contacting the server.
"""

Is there something currently broken on amo ?

I'll try again tomorrow morning.
Still no luck with updating the addon this morning.
This is strange, validation worked after trying from another user profile. Could AdBlockPlus or FlashBlock cause the problem ?

Anyway, the fixed addon is now waiting for review.
The update has been approved on AMO. Thank you, Michel!
