    I downloaded FDM yesterday and it worked initially. Today my system has asked it to be reinstalled, and I can’t download other programs. They simply do not respond.

  2. warpieke Says:

    i use free download manager along time now and its the best manager of the internet.
    it can do everything if you have 200 files awaiting on hold or whatever ,they all follow and the next day all your files are download.
    it never fails to work i use it from the beginning (its a must have on every pc)

    its free but its worth paying…

  3. Mike Says:

    With firefox 3 out today.. hopefully fdm will be compatible soon, because I don’t know what I’d do without either (probably be less organized and download more slowly ;)

  4. J Says:

    Can’t wait to have FDM updated to work with FF3.
    For now, I just have to rely on using “Copy Link Location” to trigger FDM.

  5. Daluz Says:

    Here is the same, firefox 3 says it’s not suported :(…any update in sight?

  6. MarkStrife Says:

    hey, do you now when FDM will be compatible wih firefox 3.0¿??¿

  8. earth2mike Says:

    Please please please make it compatible with FF3.

  9. Rich Says:

    It works with Firefox 3… you just need to uninstall Free Download Manager and reinstall the latest version. If you just install the latest version without uninstalling, it won’t upgrade the Free Download Manager plugin in Firefox to version 1.3.2, which is compatible with Firefox 3. It might also help to uninstall the Free Download Manager plugin from Firefox along with uninstalling Free Download Manager, before you reinstall Free Download Manager.

  10. Hyper Says:

    I have FF3 and FDM is already compatible since version RC2 :S I don’t know what you are talking about guys.

    I have just downloaded 758 from 725. 725 was running stable, but downloading torrent file was reallllllly slow 50Kbps. However, after a few minutes, it will crash. Restarting it few times, but still the problem persist. Any idea why?

    I have 20 download going on at the same time. No limit on torrent download and upload.

    Currently I have set the limit to reasonable amount. Still waiting for it to crash…..

  13. kathy Says:

    I think the reason that people say it doesn’t work with FF 3.0 is because upon installation (I installed today) you will get an error message that FDM has been blocklisted (the add-on). I found my way here, uninstalled FDM and re-installed. We’ll see if it works or not. If it doesn’t, I will revert back to FF (or whatever I was running before 3). I haven’t seen a huge difference with 3 and I’d rather FDM than FF3.

    2 Pakhri

    Could you please direct this question at our support team?

  15. zed2 Says:

    can FDM support seamonkey more than before(like IE and FIREFOX)?

  16. ValeS Says:

    For the people using Firefox 3, you can try the FlashGot plugin. It will autodetect FDM and works perfect for me. Hope this helps.

  17. Elliot Says:

    Yeah, i use FlashGot. It says that the official FDM plugin is blacklisted. apparently it causes FF3 to crash. The best thing to do is probably to try reinstalling.
    Anywho, FDM is amazing software, and a must-have. :)

  18. Amit Says:

    I can’t get the BitTorrent download to work:

    “Failed to receive the valid response from the tracker”

    I’ve tried several torrent sites including the Ubuntu site posted above (I did try their Tribe 5 download too).

    After it’s sent the request to the tracker it gives up after just a few seconds.

  19. arnold Says:

    i want to try the latest edition of downloader

  20. tom Says:

    please add RTSP/MMS support!!!

  21. Karen Says:

    I am also having the same trouble as Amit. “Failed to receive the valid response from the tracker” is the message I get whenever I try to download with a bit torrent link.

  22. mtax Says:

    please, I want it fot Linux!!!! This is the best download manager ever!
    please please please! :)

  23. Lauren Says:

    We NEED plugin compatibility with Firefox 3! These slow downloads are horrible!

    Thanks for a great program. And it is compatible with FF3 – just do as Rich sez in this post above…:-)

  27. vinumohan Says:

    Hey guys what Rich says is true… When the firefox says the free download plugin is not compatible with firefox3 it is true because the reason is you are not having the latest version of free download manager.

    Just download the latest version and install it after uninstalling the current version. The plugin with the latest version is 1.3.3 which is compatible with firefox3.

  28. vinumohan Says:

    The latest version is 2.5 build 758

  29. mick Says:

    hello.. i have problem here. my FDM version 2.5 build 758 which is latest version is not compatible with firefox3. i really dont understand. i uninstalled FDM, and reinstall again, it still the same problem. when i go to FDM monitoring, i click firefox, this message keep coming out. ” monitoring firefox browser can’t enabled due to flash got extension is installed. you should uninstall Flash Got first”….
    need help!!!!!

  30. admin Says:

    Hello everybody!
    We ask all FDM users to report bugs to the support service using the form at:
    rather than using the blog for this purpose.

  31. mAc2 Says:

    Add support for Google Chrome. This is a good idea!!!

  32. admin Says:

    Hello everybody! Once more about FF3 support:
    FDM build 758 and higher supports Firefox 3. If you still have trouble with it, reinstall FDM (make sure Firefox is closed)

  33. admin Says:

    2 tom:
    We are not yet planning to add RTSP/MMS support.

    2 mAc2:
    Adding support for Google Chrome is on our to-do list, though lower in priority than some other tasks )

  34. Nicole Says:

    whenever i try to download anything, it ust stops and the reason stated is that: “Device is not ready”…
    I beleive that fdm is a great manager, so i really need help…

  35. Salomao Says:

    I use Flashgot (Firefox extension) and FDM works very well this way.

  36. George Says:

    Free Download Manager Click Catcher Plug-In for Netscape, Opera, Mozilla never update since 2007 if you are going to update the plugin npfm.dll as well which has compatiblity problems with Windows 98.

    In Windows XP every mime type is listed in K-Meleon. However, in Windows 98 only one mime type is listed in K-Meleon. Which leads me to believe that npfdm.dll does not mime types correctly in win98. So it does not download certain files when you click a file in K-meleon, Netscape, Opera, and Mozilla.

  37. Денис Says:

    Спасибочки. Это именно то, что нам нужно было :)

  38. azreal Says:

    could you include the ability to edit the trakers accessed by each torrent in case of connection failer. it is nice to manage my downloads all in one prog thou. thanks for all your effort 5 cool points

  39. NJKdaGREAT Says:

    Please give priority to create Plug-Ins for Google Chrome. Its a great browser and FDM is the greatest dwonload manager, so both together will make most of our lives easy. Thank You

  47. Monica Says:

    I LOVE FDM, I have used it for I don’t know how many years along with the Firefox Plugin, unfortunately, I upgraded my Firefox the other day to Firefox 9 and FDM does not work with it, so Firefox has disabled it…and I miss it so much!!! I hope that FDM will come out with a new version that is compatible with Firefox 9!!!
