View Full Version : Firefox downloads...

Have just installed Firefox and Thunderbird and coming to grips with it...

How can I disable Firefox's Downloading system and revert to using DAP which I have used for some years now - don't seem to be able to find a means to alter the default loadup to Firefox's own system.

You should be able to drag and drop the URL on to your download managers dropbox. There also might be a plugin to make DAP capture the downloads.

Last time I used DAP it didnt work with Firefox. I see there's been a major release or two since then, so try re-installing DAP and see if it puts itself into firefox as a Plugin perhaps?

Otherwise do as JM says and copy the URL and paste it into DAP. A hassle I know, but its that or try some other download managing software (Check the Firefox plugins page and see if theres anything good in there).

Thanks guys,

tried the Downloadwith option and installed it but can't find that it does anything to help. Went to Downloadwith site to find they have a discussion forum there with a stack of people having much the same problem as me (if I can understand the tech jargon.) Think at this stage I 'll just have to leave things as they are - I obviously have the latest version of Firefox, perhaps this has some bearing. Will need to do some homework on extensions etc...
