- Rated 3 out of 5by whitey3, 3 years agoI liked the previous version of this add-on a lot. There were more settings options. Now some settings don't work (such as not having a notification pop up every time you submit something for download) and the right-click drop down menu takes longer to access because the items for the add-on are buried in deeper menus. I don't know why the newer version has fewer settings options and has changed some settings for the worse.
- Rated 3 out of 5by paziu, 3 years agoIt is a good download manager, but it lacks on quite a few features that would make it an ultimate one:
1> the re-try on errors is less than functional. I am not sure what the developer calls "temporary" errors, but it never attempts to re-try the download even on short local or remote host connectivity issues... if you have 100 downloads in the queue, it all will change to failed within a second.
2> pre-allocate space before download: ( as an available option )
a> it does prevent "huge" fragmentation of the downloaded files when multiple downloads are running at the same time
b> it does not download the actual data in case there is not enough of disk space available which also prevents corruption of the downloads.
3> there is a substantial performance hit, after a while of use, if multiple files are being added ( one by one ) to the queue with 'OneClick'. Stopping the download, closing the tab, and often exporting/importing the links are needed to get the plugin back to a usable state ( Win10, and Linux ).
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 16124550, 3 years agoPoor error handling. Cannot resume partial downloads, doesn't retry on network failures, badly renames files (maybe related to retrying: forgets the filename set by the server and takes the name from the URL).
- Rated 3 out of 5by Robson, 4 years agoAs someone who used the older DTA 3, this version is almost useless in comparison. I know Firefox Quantum made very hard for the dev to keep all the features, and i appreciate the his hard work in rewriting the whole extension, but for me there's no point in using it anymore.
- Rated 3 out of 5by aliger, 4 years agoСтарая версия была намного лучше - можно было переименовать закачку, скачивание шло в 2 раза быстрее, поддерживались прямые пути до нужной папки (сейчас только в папку Загрузки/подпапку), расширение стало одним из многих и потеряло свою индивидуальность.
The old version was much better - you could rename the download, downloading was 2 times faster, direct paths to the desired folder were supported (now only the Downloads / subfolder folder), the extension became one of many and lost its identity.
- Rated 3 out of 5by David , 4 years agoAbsolutely perfect for Firefox 52 ESR and earlier. After that it's just useless. Missing options in the new version of DTA (such as choosing the number of segments)), the GUI sucks by comparison. Absolutely positively does not accelerate downloads one bit. Mozilla has made it nigh impossible for the dev to maintain the formerly clean interface and function. 5 stars for the older version though. All Mozilla's fault!
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14364086, 4 years agoIt works fine, but i use the old version on old portable firefox (only for downoad big files) which is a fantastic extension, robust and full of advanced options. The download folder for me is not a problem: i have 32Gb RAM and intalled in it a 20Gb RamDisk and downloading everythng in it
- Rated 3 out of 5by Frank, 4 years agoThe version does not start my downloads automatically, in previous versions when I always downloaded it automatically came out, at this moment I get the one from the firefox browser and not the Downthemall. espero que puedan ayudarme.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoIt does start downloads automatically, unless you configured it not to (having used Add paused and then selected to remember this decision). Or you might be expering a bug, in which case I suggest you file an issue here: https://github.com/downthemall/downthemall/issues
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 15286330, 4 years agoPlease add the option to skip the file if it is already downloaded. Also, I don't see the ability to set where to download files. I'm glad you're working on the add-on again. It's great news :-)
- Rated 3 out of 5by onesolo2, 4 years agoI don't know if I have a bug or not, tried all betas since beta 2, but when I try to click to download a file, I don't get a DTA download dialog box like it used before with old firefox versions. Can DTA capture or not download links?!
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThis is a feature that DownThemAll! cannot implement as it is not possible in WebExtensions.
Nothing we can do about it; mozilla would have to add something that allows WebExtensions to integrate in the Save As window like that.
