Additional Comments

It doesnt need DLL overrides, third party software or other settings, you just need some elbow grease to get the downloads happening. Few Tips: How to download off MegaUpload(linux): Start your download in firefox. Pause it in the Downloads window Right click it and select "Copy Download Link" Now open FDM and Click start new download. The link should already be in the new download window as FDM grabs input from clipboard. This does not work with Rapidshare, as they do not allow download resuming. Only works with sites that allow download resuming.

Please use the latest 3.8 RC version, which runs flawlessly out of the box.
