Firefox has arbitrarily disabled IDMcc even though I have been using it multiple times a day for months with no problems. I wish to reinstall IDM and use it. If I can't I will stop using Firefox and go back to IE. I would prefer to stay with Firefox but I will not use a browser that won't let me use IDM which was working just fine.

== I reloaded Firefox I told IDM had been disabled

Chosen solution

This was a typo in our blocklisting. IDM causes Firefox 4 and up to crash, we accidentally blocklisted it for 3.6+ instead. This has already been fixed, you should be able to re-enable it via Tools > Addons now.

C'est arbitraire!! Je ne peux pas me passer d'internet download manager et pour moi il n'a jamais causé de problème avec firefox. J'espère que l'équipe réactivera le plug in idm. C'est mon gestionnaire de téléchargement et je ne peux pas m'en passer comme je ne peux pas me passer de firefox. Merci de trouver une solution. Cordialement

Traduction google: Google translation:

Is arbitrary! I can not do without internet download manager, and for me it has never caused a problem with firefox. I hope the team will reactivate the plugin idm. This is my download manager and I can not do without it as I can not do without firefox. Thank you for finding a solution. Cordially

The Firefox community can't solve this problem because the answer lies within FIREFOX ITSELF. The technical team at Firefox must undo this blatant act hacking their users systems or lose a signicant number of their users.

Explanation-

The Mozilla team appears to have attempted to block Internet Download Manager from Firefox 4.0 betas ONLY due to high crash rate.

However, their block change contained and error and instead Internet Download Manager was blocked from most versions of Firefox.

The Mozilla team appears to be aware of this, and is working quickly to correct the error.

Rest assured, though I am not in the employ of Mozilla it does not appear that this is an intentional block for all Firefox users.

I expect it will be resolved very quickly.

See- https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=578443

For details.

I solved this exact problem by using these steps: Whenever I want to download something, I choose to open the download link in a new window by right clicking on the link and choosing that option. I ten copy the exact address form the address bar and copy & paste the address into the ADD URL address box in IDM. After all that, hit OKAY in the ADD URL window, and IDM will download your file for you with the same speed you've come to be used to. For the default download windows that opens up when you selct to open the link in a separate window, just close out of it.

I hope I helped you guys! Hello from Canada!

Been a firefox user for years. But cant live w/o IDM as well.

Can replace firefox? Definitely YES.

Can replace IDM?? Hell NO.

Why did Firefox arbitrarily blocked IDM? No option for us users? Did Firefox team get advice from Apple? lol

SO long firefox! Been a nice ride and thank you!
