Show download list on integrate downloader.

Post by Jabe » Fri May 15, 2009 11:58 pm

I recently discovered that Flashgot has some integrated downloader so I decided to use it and uninstall Orbit.

But then I realized that with the "Download all" option I'm not able to choose which file to download anymore as in Orbit.

Do you plan to add this feature ?

It should be great to display some list of the downloadable files and to be able to uncheck those that we don't want to download. And even type file format that we want.

(Note: I know I can choose file type with the "more options/download" menu but if I have to change file type each time it's not very handy)

So my request is to Improve integrated Firefox downloader to download all file by type and be able to choose which ones to download.

That added layer would be nice to have for sure. :idea:

@Jabe:
the "integrated" download is the Firefox "stock" one and is supported as a "courtesy" but not recommended, since it's very limited if compared with any external one.
May I ask you why do you ditched Orbit, which works very well with FlashGot (it's currently my default, in facts)?

I removed it because I was annoyed by their frequently updates which force user to go to the website to download update, then install it by clicking next next next but unchecking their toolbar and search engine that I don't want to use.

It's easier to update Flashgot and less intrusive ;)

Plus I rarely use all Orbit features, the only one I miss is this possibility to choose what to download.
