I was just downloading a 17 MB file on my slower than a snail dial-up
when I got "disconnected" at about 11 MB downloaded
(an hour or more of downloading!)
When I tried to go back and start downloading again,
the SM Downloader now wants to start all over again !
Calling that PoS a "Download Manager" is a fraud.
IMO, it is THE major shortcoming of the suite.
Here is a listing of various apps
with ratings on their Gecko compatibility:
Even if you can't get Click Detection
transfered from the browser to the app,
you should be able to open the app
and drag & drop the link onto it.
Been working with WinGet 1.9 whilst waiting for someone to answer this post.
I added the .dll to SM's plugin folder as directed, but SM 1.1 will not
detect the click - it always goes to it's default DM.
WinGet shows up in "about:plugins", so I know it is there.....
WinGet has a button on the Desktop's lower right bar (don't know what
that is called) which brings up the WinGet downloader.
If I copy and paste, it works quite nicely !
Must admit, I haven't interrupted the download and tried to resume yet.
What is strange is that SM 1.1 has had downloads interrupted and resumed
in the past - just wouldn't do it for this download:
From Googling about SM's downloader for a while, I see that resuming is
not one of its better functions.
