Feature Request: Make use of JDownloader Browser Extension for reCAPCHA

Issue #73 resolved
Former user created an issue

With Mangadex occasionally requiring Cloudflare reCAPCHA verification while they are under DDOS, it would be useful to have a way to solve the captchas normally rather than just error out.

JDownloader utilizes a browser extension to load up capchas in your webbrowser for manual solving. Would it be possible for Manga Downloader add support for using their Chrome/Firefox browser extensions when solving a capcha is required?

    Well, actually we don't even need an external extension, it would be enough to do as we did with Batoto Downloader (I mean open the web page directly in the program itself to manually solve the captcha) and yeah, that would be an ideal solution. But this would require a considerable amount of work, which would require much time to devote to coding, as well as bringing with it several extra heavy dependencies (specifically javafx) for the program and frankly I don't know how much it's worth, seeing as this situation (the anti-bot protection with captcha enabled) is indeed occasional and above all it lasts only a few hours. However I'll think better about it and try to implement it maybe by writing the necessary code little by little between one update and another

    The just released v15 introduces a first support to JavaFX, now we have to wait for Mangadex to enable again their captcha protection to test it

    Thanks for letting me know, I was finally able to properly test the new feature and now, with some little adjustments, it seems to work well. I will release the updated version to fix this issue as soon as possible

    v15.2 released, it adds improvements for the bypass function for Cloudflare anti-bot protection
