  1. Guys, the feature to download a list of URLs from a text file is desperately needed and has been needed for some time. Ideally, there would be a text box inside FDM where we could just paste all the links and FDM would detect the different ones and give the option to save everything into one folder.

    I’m on FDM 5 on macOS, so if this feature used to be supported in v.3 but was taken out, that still doesn’t help us.

    Please please please!

    1. Hello Jessica,

      There is an option Paste URLs from clipboard. This is how it works: you should copy your links to the clipboard and then choose the option. You will see the dialog window for a batch download with your links. Duplicates will be automatically removed.

      1. Oh wow, that’s awesome! Thank you so much! The other thing which I think is badly needed is a more granular control for traffic limits. I’m on quite a slow connection, so there is a massive difference between setting 128/256/512. I’d love to see the ability to input a value, rather than choosing from a list of options.

        Keep up the good work!

  2. Thank you all for the great job that you all do. I am new to the use of this program, but I like it so far.
    Please oh please can you make the software Opera integratable?
    That would be uber fantastic 😉

    Thanks again

  3. It’s the best in open-source and second best overall. Just one thing I felt that made me sad – it does not support Opera on its own. I think Opera is the best browser out there, less popular but way more functional. User interface is spot on and Opera turbo works very well. And it offers VPN. It could be way more functional if FDM supports it. For FDM to work I installed Mozilla and Chrome – they are way heavier, they look modern, but not the best when I use them. So please support Opera.

    1. Hello furqan,

      Please specify the following information:
      1.OS version, FDM full version number, browser name and version.
      2. FDM window screenshot (error log).
      3. File URL which gives the error.

  4. This update is very, very welcome! Thank you! I’ve been using FDM for years now, and I love it. I haven’t switched to version 5 on my PC because I feel it hasn’t caught up to version 3 in terms of features and controls (and translations: Brazilian Portuguese, my native language, is still missing), not to mention the huge difference in the installer file size. I use v5 on my Mac mini and I can see it’s getting better, but I’ll stick to v3 on the PC for now. Keep up the good.
