Publisher's Description

DownThemAll is a powerful yet easy-to-use Mozilla Firefox extension that adds new advanced download capabilities to your browser. It lets you download all the links or images contained in a webpage and much more: you can refine your downloads by fully customizable criteria to get only what you really want. It is all you can desire from a download manager: it features an advanced accelerator that increases speed up to 400%, it allows you to pause and resume downloads at any time and, last but not least, it's fully integrated into your favorite browser.

"Firefox prevented the installation because it is not compatible with FireFox 3.6.8."

The retry feature was added AFTER the previous reviewer noted its absence.

The auto retries setting is on the MAIN page of the options menu. You can set the retry frequency and limit. But yeah, I'm really not sure why they disabled retries by default.

It's a very good download manager, but it does not have some of the advanced features of standalone managers like FDM and Orbit. I don't think it was ever intended to entirely supplant software like that even if they share basic functionality.

Personally, DTA has all of the features I need, and the browser integration just makes things simpler for the way I do them. The "grab all media on page" feature works better than the competition, and is a natural fit.

Excellent stuff.

It's a nice extension, and it makes download selection much easier, but it's ridiculous to call this a "download manager". I say this because of obvious deficiencies, such as there being no way to add alternate servers for a given download. And when a download encounters an error--whether it's a server error, a timeout, a local problem, or anything else--it's too bad for you, because DTA won't retry the download. It just happily gives up. Anyone who calls this a "download manager" has ridiculously low standards.

as a download manager/resumer, DTA is great. unfortunately it has the nasty little habit of increasing the maximum number of connections, persistent connections, and persistent connections per server. these values (which can only be reverted manually via about:config) are increased so aggressively that normal browsing is noticeably impacted...i am on a 9mbps connection and experience significant bottlenecking when loading from 3 or more tabs.

if this addon could increase these connections only when downloading, and then reset them to their previous values when its downloads are finished, i would give it a 5.

If you download much with Firefox, then you need this extension. It also includes metalink ( http://www.metalinker.org/ ) support.

DownThemAll increases download speeds and is convenient to use. Haven't had any problems with it.

I find this one of the best Plugins for Firefox!

Hey "asaenz", it does allow for you to make the file what you want. Use the "Cue" option and it will bring up a Dialog Box, there you can direct your download to any folder and name the file whatever you want.

Also, it you are a little ties down with Bandwidth, set the downloads to one (1) file at a time and Cue the rest up, they will download as soon as the previous completes. If you are using FIOS or a T1 / T3, then it won't really matter, but this will help with those one DSL or slow Cable Connections.

Would be nice if it would allow me to choose a file name of my own choosing when using one-click download that way I can give the file a meaningful name besides setup_001, setup_002, setup_003, etc.. Reattempting partial/incomplete downloads would also be nice and a user accessable field in the user interface to input a value of number of attempts/retries. Once it is relatively "bug-free", it would be nice if the download speed could be regulated easily (perhaps a slider) for each download.

For small tasks and small files it works pretty nice . Downloading files between some megabytes up to let's say 150mb becomes really a pain :-(
dTa let a lot of files in incomplete status , it seems the downloaded segments are complete , file becomes light-green , but it will not finish to assemble the segments !
Also Firefox starts to show un unpredictable behavior , as for jumping between opened firefox windos , the cursor/mousepointer is unavailable for some long seconds .
Closing 1 ! Window results in closing some! , unpredictable count of windows .

Last time I installed it it changed my max.connections configs out of spec and slowed browsing... Uninstalling did not return the values either.
