    When you close Firefox any downloads you have active or paused are cancelled. Most modern download managers will save a foo.bar.part on your hard drive even when the session is closed so you can resume later. Or, in some cases, you can even move the partial file to another system and continue the download from there.

    Unfortunately, Firefox can't do this. Personally, I wonder why they don't just borrow some wget code.

    Iv always liked GetRight but its pay. I'm willing to pay for software if its worth a crap. You can try it out with ads (like you do with opera) to see if you like it and you only pay for it once. All the upgrades are free.
