Question alternative mozilla downloader

my box freezes several times when mozilla is downloading files
and i noticed that mozilla-bin eats up to 80% or higher of my CPU
i dont know how to fix the problem
and i am thinking if i can use another program for downloading files from webpages like wget

how can i configure mozilla to use this alternative downloader ?

my box is suse9.1
thanks in advance

acrobat reader is used for reading the PDF, *not* for downloading it. So your problem may indeed be with Mozilla downloading.
I don't know how to change the downloader, but there must be a way, because Galeon can change the downloader, and Galeon is based on Mozilla.
