    Firefox Download Managers?

    When dealing with really large file i use a 3rd party downloader called Free Download Manager.

    Works with Seamonkey IE and Firefox for sure and you can even use it to download of places like D2D were a password or such is involved.

  4. Firefox is dropping packets when downloading large files then stops

    Firefox crashes non-stop!!!

    Firefox is useless now. Last known decent version was 3. It was downhill after that. Better switch to other browsers.

    The prob you are mentioning is because of the sqlite file, Delete it, and it will be good to go. S
