- by DooGie, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5This extension was fine until Firefox version 70.0 where it soesn't show the download progress bar.
Previously I would have given 4 or 5 stars but to me the bug which prevents the download bar appearing makes it no more useful than the built in download manager. I really hope a fix comes soon.
Now installed Firefox version 70.0 RC2 and DM (S3) is now working correctly again. Now worth 5 stars again.

У меня только карта мир (которая не работает с пейпал...), могу на яндекс.деньги или вебмани. Но при обновлении ВСЕХ ваших плагинов открывается страничка на которой только помощь через Paypal, и нельзя менять сумму! Мне это совсем неудобно. Пару раз открывал ссылки на форум и даже на ваш сайт - так и не смог найти реквизитов. Да и то, часть ссылок не рабочая... очень странно.
- by Akaitatsu, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5This probably works fine if you're on a fast Internet connection or otherwise don't need to queue feature. This was the main reason I started using the extension but it required far too much babysitting. I have slow Internet so I set the queue to only run one download at a time. However, it would often start a second download even if one was already running. I would then have to cancel the second download and try again until it just got added to the queue.
Although a smaller issue, the status bar isn't really a toolbar. It is actually an addition to the current page and obstructs access to the bottom (or top) of the page and you can't scroll the page to make the obscured section accessible.
I have switched to Simple Mass Downloader as the queue seems to work well. It isn't exactly "simple", but works fine once you get used to its quirks.
- by Firefox user 14884883, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5tried using this download manager, 1st it tried to change the name of the download, and 2nd it doesn`t do multi downloads even thou the description says it does.
- by Firefox user 14667734, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5This does nothing. It just shows what the regular downloader is doing. And if the regular downloader fails, as it often does, so does this downloader. I wouldn't be looking for a download manager if i was happy with the default firefox downloading. Worst of all, it wants permission to spy on everything you do with your computer. I'd have allowed it if it worked but it improves nothing.
- by Nikita, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5EDIT: Update on review.
Removed this crapware after trying it again. It never resumes anything. In-fact, downloads which can be resumed normally are canceled regularly with this extension.
I needed a download manager to queue downloads one by one and this works fine alright since "Download Them All" doesn't work anymore.
BUT, Download Manager has a lot of issues.
First of all, if you pause all downloads, you resume... ALL DOWNLOADS. Yeah. Download Manager forgets the fact that it's supposed to download one file at a time, like it's set in settings. It just resumes EVERY file you're downloading.
And if you pause these files? The download gets stuck or broken.
About the broken, I have to basically go and double check if every file downloaded actually downloaded fully or not, especially audio files. Sometimes, Download Manager shows download as "completed" but when you open download folder, the download still has ".part" files, meaning it never finished downloading and stopped at some point.
So you end up going back and re-downloading the same file, wasting bandwidth all over again and wasting time double checking every file you're downloading.
Then there is the annoyance where if the download fails for some reason, the download file CANNOT be cleared from the download history or download bar. No matter how many times you cancel it, or clear it. The download refuses to go until you restart browser.
Basically, this addon needs to fix all these issues. Right now the only thing it's good for is queuing downloads.
- by Norm, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5I just lowered my review from 4 stars to ONE STAR because this add-on no longer works in Mac Catalina Public Beta 6. The developer is non-responsive. The add-on continues to work properly in Google Chrome.
I would give it 5 stars except for one very necessary but missing feature.
I cannot restart or resume a timed out or failed download. Imagine a 800 MB file 97% complete, stalled. Sorry, the hour spent downloading the 97% is gone, wasted, and I get to start all over again from 0%.
Other than that, it is a very good add-on and one I use all the timer.
- by Firefox user 14041712, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5The extension don't save download history. Useless for me. I'll change my review when the extension could save my download history.
- by Firefox user 12239111, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5I am using this addon on Firefox pre-57 and I am disturbed by one lack of option, in fact I use this addon for everything except the add-on taskbar. So I would like to have the button in the bar, except when I click on it it will open all the downloads in a new tab (while actually it will show a sort of pop-up that resumes the download, a sort of vertical pop-up).
So the question is how to enable the option to open the downloads in a new tab instead of a pop-up when clicking on the Download Manager button in the taskbar ??? Thank you
