Queue works but not not with adjusted number of downloads (adjusted 4, downloading 4 to 10). Settings cannot be shown/changed (empty window) when several downloads running. DownloadManager opened with menu in status bar shows empty window while downloads running. DownloadManager window opened with icon in task bar only shows one progressbar while downloads running but nothing else. If there are e.g. 5 downloads running and 20 done, I cannot delet the completed downloads by using the menu in the status bar. I have to wait until most downloads are finished. So I get more and more lines shown in the status bar. I have to say that the S3 Downloadmanager works fine when I download not more than 3 or 4 files at the same time. But that is not the reason why I use a DLM. I want to start 20 DLs and keep my system working. For me there are more cons than pros. Sorry.
- by sevenkul, a day agoRated 5 out of 5It is a great addon to manage downloads quickly. I wish that the right click menu included a "rename" item so that I could rename a downloaded file without opening the download folder or minizing browser window. Most of the time, I want to rename a file as its link appears on the web page.
- by Skywoolf, 4 days agoRated 4 out of 5Just a minor problem. Some web pages have important data in the last line at the bottom of pages. Download Manager blocks the view of this line and has to be closed to see what is there. Not a big deal but a nice improvement if you can avoid it.
- by mr. sparkle, 3 months agoRated 2 out of 5This addon prevents the virustotal site from working and possibly others according to another reviewer.
One workaround is disable this addon from working in a private window then open a private window to use virustotal's site.
But I don't like addons messing with my ability to browse websites. I'll be looking for another download manager addon.
- by Prometheus, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5List of files from manager is gone after restart but is shown in firefox manager. List of downloaded files still appears on bottom of FF even i closed it at least 10 times.
- by FredMcD, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5This downloads the file but is very lacking.
The download starts when you right-click the link.
You are given no opportunity to rename the file
or select where you want the file saved.
I discovered that: under 'Files And Applications,'
setting Downloads to Always Ask fixes this issue.
