- by Cyberknight, a year agoRated 1 out of 5It's still useful for quick downloads, despite the WebExtension constraints (like no timestamp retrieval, inability to download from some password authenticated sites and so one), but it is full of bugs, like when Firefox crashes, and, after restart, no matter what were the state of the files, DTA (re)tries to download everything again and again, even already downloaded, paused and whatnot files, refusing to open the manager to stop the mess (more often than not, the only solution is to remove DTA from Firefox's extension directory), and the import function is almost completely broken (it doesn't read the given filename, title and description fields, so it's impossible to retrieve exported queues), so it's not even feasible to split the job into smaller and safer chunks. All in all, it is not trustable with larger and more important download jobs (for them, Waterfox with original DTA is my current option, until something better is brought to light).
- by Firefox user 13482431, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Absolutely worthless add-on, I have no idea what people see in this, if I have to add a link manually for each download, might as well just click on them and have them download, I don't need a queue for that.
It can't even do a simple recursive link handling where it should be drilling down.
The interface is clumsy, the UI is a nightmare and should be used as an example of HOW NOT TO design a UI.
Garbage add-on, hope you weren't trying to harvest whatever info you are getting out of our browsers.

Only one thread, even though I set it to download 3 threads at a time. Tried to find a help page, there doesn't seem to be one...
