Re: Prevent Flashgot from automatically downloading images?

Today I had JDownloader2 running and downloading some files (I have it configured as my download manager if Flashgot) while I was browsing some forums, when I noticed a significant slowdown of Firefox. Turned out, JD2 was downloading thousands of images from those forums in the background. The only way it could do that is via Flashgot.

This is a huge problem!

How can I stop this behaviour?

Sometimes Flashgot automatically downloads images from a page without me asking it to do it.
This happens when I have the configured download manager (JDownload2) running.

It happens consistently when I write HTML code with links to images in UltraEdit and then tell it to display it in the browser.
But it also happens on random pages with images.

How do I prevent it from doing it?
