Set Star Downloader as default download manager


I would like to use Star Download as my default download manager. I have it installed and I have checked that FF is integrated, but when I download a file/program, it is not activated. Do I need to deactivate some other DL manager?

To set it as the default, please disable the others that are not in use.

Thanks for the reply. However, even after disabling all the downloaders that I could see in "Add-ons" and "Extensions", Star Downloader didn't activate. Also, when I tried to manually add the video URL, all I got was a 19 second file downloaded.
