Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is wonderful, I use it extensively.

One tiny notion, though. In Firefox 2.x, I used to be able to drag-and-drop links onto the manager window, links that were actually no HTML links (), just plain text selected. This neat feature is no longer available in Firefox 3, at least I attribute the lack of the feature to the version change.

Any ideas?

Keep up the good work!

DownThemAll vorsicht Rated 2 out of 5 stars

DownThemAll hält was es verspricht.
ABER nach Beendigung der Downloads ist der Datentransfer noch nicht zu Ende.
Über das Programm werden mit vollem Upload Daten von meinem Rechner gezogen.
Das hört erst auf wenn ich die Anwendung komplett beende, oder die Netzwerkverbindung trenne.
Ich habe zur Sicherheit das Programm deinstalliert.

Works very well... Don't know why the griping Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this extension for over two years now - through several Firefox versions - on my old XP box and my new laptop, on which I dual-boot Vista and Ubuntu Linux. I have not experienced any problems with stability on either of my machines, running any version of Firefox in ANY operating system.

I don't know what the deal is with "crappyaddonssuck" and "badplugin". There must be something else afoot in their systems. I have downloaded image files larger than 1GB speedily and without problems. I have dealt with flaky servers that drop connections, too, and I have ALWAYS been able to resume dropped downloads and eventually get the files I am after!

Nor do I have to "babysit" my downloads. I can easily continue working while the downloads are in progress. The system remains stable, doesn't lock, doesn't even slow down very much. And I don't have top-of-the-line hardware, either - just a clunker 2001-vintage Gateway box and a new but modestly-priced Acer laptop.

Across 300+ reviews, the overwhelming consensus is that DownThemAll! is a very good extension. Before one spews bile and invective, damning a piece of software, one should examine the consensus and consider - at least CONSIDER - that one's problem lies somewhere else. Perhaps a network driver is old or corrupt. That would be where I would look first, considering the stated symptoms.

I certainly don't get how one can lose one's settings and "personal data" due to a Firefox crash. Because I have used Firefox nightlies and betas as well as final releases, I have experienced Firefox crashes aplenty since the dark days when Firefox was still called Firebird, and NEVER has anything like that happened to me. An extension can cause Firefox to crash, but cause corruption of bookmarks? Ridiculous! Especially since this particular extension has NOTHING to do with bookmarks and interacts with the "bookmarks.htm" file NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST! IF that is really happening, something far worse than an errant Firefox extension is to blame!

Users need to NOT jump to conclusions and instead look inside the event logs that document all crashes. DownThemAll! is likely not a direct cause but only a tipping point - a trigger - interacting poorly with something else in the system that is already problematic. I would not rule out malware - not just viruses, but trojans, rootkits, etc. Even some piece of software elsewhere on the system may have written over a critical library (.dll) with a different version. With XP, this is a common scenario. With Vista, it's enhanced security is supposed to prevent this, but it CAN happen nevertheless! A bogus .dll file is a common cause of instability and crashes, no matter what extensions or applications actually trigger them.

To say that one is having trouble with an extension is valid enough - that is simply a statement of fact. To therefore blame the extension, damning it as "crap," without exhaustive investigation, without conclusive or even very persuasive evidence, and against overwhelming user consensus to the contrary, is not only unfair, it just generates heat without any accompanying light.

mi opinion sobre DTA Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excelente aplicacion, ha mejorado mis tiempos en descargas considerablemente en comparacion a la descarga normal de Firefox. Me parece muy util ademas que la aplicacion pueda filtrar por pagina los contenidos descargables ahorrando tiempo en hacer "clicks" en los archivos deseados

Felicidades y gracias DTA!

Works Grrrreat! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried a bunch of download extensions, and most of them don't really help you to download much. I now have the combination of DownThemAll!, Fast Video Download, and UnPlug.

With these three tools I can download most things, though it's tricky getting the settings just right. Particularly, I had to play with the file-type filters.

UnPlug and DownThemAll! (aka DTA) work particularly well together. There is some learning curve in knowing *what* button to click in the resulting page after clicking UnPlug.

You might have to reload a page more than once as you play with settings/what to click.

But that is all a side effect the multimedia formats and the way they are put in the web page! This really DOES do what it claims!

Get this one!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one very nice bit of software. I have from time to time seen good soft ware. This is one of those rare times. Well done. I will send support money to help insure it stays on the seen.
Worth downloading-well worth paying for!
