Why is the "Firefox Throttle" addon not available anymore and is there a replacement?
I need to be able to dynamically slow down (throttle) the speed with which my firefox downloads content. There are thousands of google links to an extension that seems to do exactly what I want: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5917/ However this is now a dead link. Why?
Is there a replacement?

I have been in contact with the folks there about a time line for a version that will work with FireFox ver: 4.x and their response is:
That's ok. I'm really swamped with other stuff at the moment. Best bet is end of April-mid May.
Hope this estimate holds,

Though it's not my app, I've put it on GitHub. I need it!! https://github.com/hkirsman/Firefox-Throttle
I changed the version limiter to Firefox 5.*
It installs but menu is a bit weird, it's missing active/disable button on the toolbar and when trying to save options, it says "TypeError: this.watcherservice is undefined"
Maby somebody can fork it!?
It works on FF 3.6.17 though. Multiple installs? I have!

@momashi69, I like your method and use it myself, but Firefox 3.6 is scheduled to be "end-of-lifed" on April 24, 2012:
One could continue using Portable 3.6 but would be missing out on security updates..
Edit: DownThemAll! (2.0.13 as of this writing) supports download throttling for individual files and works in Firefox 4+ (10.0.2 as of this writing) - no upload throttling, though..
