This program revolutionized the way in which I get porn.

Well...it does what it's supposed to do. It allows you to use external download managers with Firefox. Been using it from the beginning and haven't had any issues at all.
The recent release allows you to choose download managers on the fly if you have more than one installed, too.
If you have any external downloaders and use FireFox, download it - its a MUST HAVE
Reviewing 18.104.22.168 (Feb 16, 2009)
If you use FlashGot to download FLV videos as does SueAmma below, you may want to avoid v22.214.171.124. A Bug has crept into this version that causes the same video to appear twice when you hover over the download icon. If you click to download you get two copies of the same video. To work around this problem you must right click on the icon and select one of the two identical videos. I personally solved this problem by reinstalling v126.96.36.199 retrieved from a backup of my Firefox profile.
This anomoly has been reported and hopefully will be fixed in a future version. In the meantime I will keep a copy of v188.8.131.52 to replace any update that still has the problem.
ADDENDUM: NOTE FROM PROGRAM'S AUTHOR:

FlashGot is great for downloading FLV files from YouTube and similar sites. When a video is available on the web page, a button appears on the right side of the status bar. One click and the video is downloaded.
