Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I tried others. Simply put - the absolute best it could possibly be. This is one plug-in that should be included in Firefox install standard!! Don't even hesitate to get it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).

In like 1 word killer!; 2 words: must have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For the person who downloads day & night to just your average web browser: this is an absolute must have extension.
Not only does it cut downloading time substantially but it makes managing downloads much easier. From custom file names, to full web site mirroring. I can think of only a few days when I've not needed this extension.
For productive uses & also just for fun[as of FF3] this is my abs. fave extension. A must have for every web browser to web & software developer. Honestly I'd like to even see this wrapped in XULRunner & available as a stand alone download. It seriously is just this good!
All I have left to say is: *w00t!*
wats the preffered version then Not yet rated
i downloaded v 1.0, its just like the default dL manager of firefox (the speed doesnt change)..
since u'r all saying that "dont use 1.0", i downloaded 0.9.9.10... when i tried downloading, same speed appears...
how can u say that downloading becomes faster? (seriously, no sarcasm) is it from the shown speed or from some other else?
its my first time to use dTa... tnx!
Do not use version 1.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
DownThemAll is a great extension... up until version 1.0. Downloads that went 3MB/s (yes, megabytes) in 0.9.10 go 30KB/s in version 1.0. Yes, 100x slower. Although this seems to be largely due to a broken chunks system (1.0 only allows one chunk per file, whereas 0.9.10 allowed 10), that alone could only account for a portion of the speed loss. Furthermore, regular internet browsing became nigh-unusable with 1.0 installed. DownThemAll still gets a 10/10, based on the previous version, but if the problems in 1.0 aren\\\'t fixed, then I\\\'m going to have to lower my rating.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Problem With Version 1 Not yet rated
DtA prior to version 1 is a dream firefox Add-On.
I don't know what went on with this version ... but it slows Firefox (with anything more than one tab open) to a halt: DO NOT USE!
Check the FireFox "About:Config" set-up and reset the various offending paramters according to this:
Hope this helps.
excellent - recommended Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I am highly delighted with initial results. i had been trying to download a 600MB file froma secure site all weekend using bare firefox, but it always died after 200-300 MB. With this add on it appeared to download at about double the speed and went through to conclusion. I did have crash in the middle, possibly because I was doing 10 other things.. but this add-on successfully Resumed. Full marks!

1.0 hold up all internet connections Not yet rated
After installing 1.0, FireFox seems to wait forever to connect to the internet. I tried disabling it and everything works fine. Earier version don't has such problem. Seems to be caused by new bug in latest version. Don't install this version until the problem is fixed.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).

New "Stable" version doesn't work for me but Nightly Build does Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you can't get the new version to work, try the latest nightly build which you can find here:
It also has a link to older builds.
I love it! Works with RapidShare Rated 4 out of 5 stars
My favorite new add-on. I was glad for the accelerator that worked with RapidShare, but even more excited for the Download them ALL option to dl all links on a page w/o all the endless and repetitive clicking back and forth. I have FF2 and havent experienced any problems. Wish it would resume broken downloads, though.
for anyone experiencing troubles between DtA and RapidShare: you might need to change to 'direct downloading'. if you login to your premium account space, there is an options link button in the middle of the page. direct download is then an option... ie you skip the page where you'd normally pick the server/mirror you want to dl from and you are directed to the actual file. if you don't then yes, you will dl that intermediate webpage and not the file. if you are downloading 100MB PART files you might just need to change the file name. for instance, i have to add the . before rar to make mine valid archives.
Dont download Newest Not yet rated
Go back to the old version, there newest v1.0 is full of bugs and has become 100% useless to the point of not being able to use it at all.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Problems with Version 1.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
There is a problem with the new version of DownThemAll! When downloading multiple files or images from a website, Firefox locks up solid and the application has to be ended from Task Manager. I have reverted back to version 0.9.9.10 for the time being, and until the problem has been rectified with another revision. I did however like the new GUI, so hopefully the programmers can fix the problem. I'd advise sticking to version 0.9.9.10 for the time being! ;-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Get around the error Rated 4 out of 5 stars
If you can't install it directly, just right click the install link and "Save As" to your desktop, then in firefox click "File", "Open File" and here we go. works perfectly!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Wonderful, but not perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This latest update of Down Them All! is really good and makes a great add-on that should be, IMO, considered for inclusion to the core browser. It is just that darn handy and powerful - and very simple to learn and use. The ONE thing I really dislike about this newer updated build is that it doesn't retain the renaming mask (I used *name*.*ext* most often telling it to use the file's name and extension as downloaded) so I have to type that in every time I download with it - for everything except "dTa OneClick!" downloads. I do like the feature to download across multiple tabs with this new DTA build - great for getting pics from image galleries that open each in a new window - open a bunch and then DTA all of them across all tabs in one fell swoop. Very cool. Aside from the naming mask being less automatic and intuitive like the prior version this is absolutely a must have and darn near "perfect" for what it is designed to do. Well worth the time to get and to learn to use. It beats the pants of the standard download manager.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
A must-have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Put computer to sleep after downloads complete Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been using downthemall for a few years now. it's such a nice programme.
I usually leave my download on at night, but downloads finish a few hours later.
So I suggest that a sleep/shutdown is added to the programme when downloads are finished. I know the codes varies from OS to OS, but it should be simple enough...
Look no further! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Download and allow it do the job for you. May at first feel a bit complicated for the newbs but believe me - you are there.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1).
Minor bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Thank you very much. One minor bug only: You forgot to specify color for the From: and Size: fields in the progress popups. Since in my system I use white text on navy background, these 2 fields show blank. Otherwise excellent. My rating would be higher if you had decimals.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
