  • Good download manager for firefox?

    Since I am to damn lazy to find a suitable one myself what is a good download manager for firefox, that allows me to :
    • Pause files (I know fox already has this but I find it is very buggy)
    • Download 1 file from multiple mirrors
    • Preferable an addon, not an external program.
    • Allow me moderate bandwidth for each file.

    Thank you for your time.

    I am using "DownThemAll!"
    It's an add-on and has been working fine for me.

    I bet you're the kind of guy that
    would fuck a person in the ass
    and not even have the godda*n
    common courtesy to give him a
    reach around. I'll be watching you.

      Downthemall is amazing. Its the one reason I have Firefox installed. It's very useful for downloading a lot of links from a page at once (eg torrent files) but its a great download manager in general too. I wish they'd bring out chrome support.

      It does everything you asked for, except for "Download 1 file from multiple mirrors" - I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for there?

        I was meaning when a file is hosted on multiple sites and the a segment of the file is download from each site.Kinda like p2p.

          Ah, I had no idea, but apparently it does do this too: "Use Metalinks or add mirrors manually to download a file from different servers at the same time."

          Will have to give that a try some time.

            I didn't notice Downloadthemall did that, which was exactly what I was looking for.Thanks

                Downthemall as said above works really great.
