FlashGot is the free add-on for Firefox and Thunderbird.

Overview

FlashGot is the free add-on for Firefox and Thunderbird, meant to handle single and massive ("all" and "selection") downloads with several external Download Managers.
Supported Download Managers for Mac OS X (Folx, iGetter, JDownloader Leech, Progressive Downloader, Speed Download and wxDFast*)
* wxDownload Fast for Mac OS X is currently available in source form only
FlashGot turns every supported download manager into a download manager for Firefox!
FlashGot offers also a Build Gallery functionality which helps to synthetize full media galleries in one page, from serial contents originally scattered on several pages, for easy and fast "download all".

What's new in FlashGot

Version 1.5.6.13:
  • Fixed breakage due to getter/setter definition changes in latest Firefox nightlies.
  • "[Middle Button Drag Down] gesture starts FlashGot downloads" checkbox in FlashGot Options window.
  • Bug fix: Link Chooser not properly honoring its "Choose all items by default" checkbox (thanks BaptX for reporting).
  • Fixed built-in download manager not working on SeaMonkey 33 and above (thanks therube for report).
  • Fixed POST data being sent with preamble headers no recent browser versions (thanks MoSal for report and flashgot.user for patch).
  • New custom download manager argument placeholders, courtesy of flashgot.user's patch: "RAWPOST" sends the raw POST upload data including its headers; "HEADERS" sends just the POST data headers.
  • Added Folx 4 and 3 support as "Folx" (legacy support is kept as "Folx 2")
  • Support for 5 additional terminal emulators on Linux (konsole, lxterminal, urxvt, rxvt, xfce4-terminal, thanks Mathias Bauer for patch)
  • Fixed JDownloader 2 detection issue (thanks user).
  • Updated Youtube support (thanks user).
  • Graceful handling of invalid referrer URLs.
  • Support for full encryption on https://flashgot.net/
  • Terminal windows attached to Linux/OS X download managers are now paused on completion with "Press [ENTER] to exit...", unless you set the flashgot.term.autoClose about:config preference to a non-negative integer value, meaning the number of seconds to be waited before automatically closing.
  • Several FlashGot Media capturing improvements (thanks user for patches).
  • Customizable terminal/launcher for Linux/Mac OS X download managers: if a "flashgot-term" script is found in $PATH it gets passed a "FlashGot (number of links)" string as its first argument (to be used as the terminal title), followed by the actual executable with arguments.
  • Updated fr & pl localizations (thanks Jack Black and Teo)
  • More compatible and complete generic URL parameter redirector (grabs the "real" final URLs from redirects and trackers).
  • Addresses of media content captured by FlashGot Media can be copied to the clipboard by right-clicking their menu entries (thanks GµårÐïåñ for RFE).
  • Updated dfiles.eu (FKA depositfiles.com) preprocessing for batch direct link premium downloads (similar FlashGot-supported preprocessed file sharing services are fileserve.com, filesonic.com, hotfile.com, megaupload.com, netload.in, rapidshare.com, uploading.com, uploaded.to, ul.to, zshare.com).
  • FlashGot Media toolbar icon placement can be customized also while no media is playing.
  • Added recent folders autocompletion support to built-in save path chooser; just focus the text field or type in it to have up to 10 recently used download paths to be looked up (thanks Scott Merrill for RFE)
  • Added suggested file name support for links diverted from the "Save as" dialog.
  • Added private mode support when calling built-in download manager.
  • Further accuracy improvements in the Middle mouse button + drag south gesture, which triggers either FlashGot Link or FlashGot Selection, depending on the context (can be disabled by setting the flashgot.gesture about:config preference to false).
  • Improved oron.com preprocessing for batch direct link downloads (similar FlashGot-supported preprocessed file sharing services are fileserve.com, filesonic.com, hotfile.com, megaupload.com, netload.in, rapidshare.com, uploading.com, uploaded.to, ul.to, zshare.com).
  • Batch download support for linksafe.me (other already supported link protection/redirection services are chooselinks.com, re-links.com, protectlinks.com, rapidsafe.net, relink.us, rsmonkey.com, hideurl.biz, ftp2share.net, rapidbolt.com, linkbank.eu, linkbucks.com, rsprotect.com
  • Updated and enhanced batch download support for relink.us (other already supported link protection/redirection services are chooselinks.com, re-links.com, protectlinks.com, rapidsafe.net, rsmonkey.com, hideurl.biz, ftp2share.net, rapidbolt.com, linkbank.eu, linkbucks.com, rsprotect.com (WARNING: Feb 15 2009, the rsprotect.com web site is infected, don't open without NoScript enabled), link-protector.com, stealth.to and lix.in, urlcash.net).
  • Download Studio support (trial download here).
  • Improved FlashGot Options|FlashGot Media panel, to choose a distinct download manager for streaming media capture. Firefox's built-in download manager is recommended because it uses browser's cache whenever possible and supports name guessing, and it's set as the default for FlashGot Media on new installatios.
  • Windows visual download managers are fully supported on Linux and Mac OS X through Wine and Darwine (tested with FlashGet and Orbit Downloader on Ubuntu 8.0.4). You can enable or disable Wine support by setting the flashgot.useWine about:config preference to true or false.
