You are dishonest ! why do you spoil IDM through updating firefox?

It seems to me that you collaborate with other companies in order to save them from bankruptcy . I have had IDM for more than a year and I never wanted to update firefox or IDM since IDM always wanted me to do so just to destroy it BUT you asked me to update firefox - in a cunning way - not for firefox itself because your update is false : no new features , nothing to be compared with the old version of firefox - but only to dismantle the installation of my IDM !!! Do you get money for such a dirty job ? or Do you enjoy spoiling other people's time ? I do not know what to say because I have a hunch that you are either a hacking company or some kind of intelligence who spy on other people . I am sorry to tell you I lost confidence in your actions and your product so I am going to find another TRUE people. If you are angry at my message ,please do not bother to send a response unless you want to defend your position .

Updates to Firefox do contain new features and fixes (security alone is a good reason to update Firefox, https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html) and we release a new version of Firefox every 6 weeks, on the dot. IDM is a third-pary and has made their latest version of their program compatible with Firefox 25, you should update IDM. Read their own support site, http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/register/new_faq/bi21.html for details. We don't break add-ons knowingly, and since add-ons are developed by independent third-parties it is their responsibility to keep add-ons updated and working in Firefox.

Re: You are dishonest ! why do you spoil IDM through updating firefox?

hello, since you've made an unfounded statements about "some kind of intelligence who spy on other people": each update actually contains critical security fixes, so it's of paramount importance to stay up-to-date https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html

there are documented cases where agencies have exploited vulnerabilities in out-dated firefox versions that have affected users who didn't update their browsers: https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-announce/2013-August/000089.html
