Please Suggest Good Download Manager for Firefox Except FlashGot and DownThemAll

Hello Friends can you suggest a Good Download Manager for Firefox Except FlashGot and DownthemAll, I have KGet but unable to use it with Firefox, it works along with Konquerer. Any suggestions. I am relatively new to Linux, so a little explanation is requested (if it is possible) for integrating KGet with Firefox---Thank You

I'm subscribing because I am also interested.

Whenever possible, I use d4x (Downloader for X). That's a gem but, of course, you need a link to the file and javascript download "links" cannot be copied.

That app is moving to another site but you can still get downloads, I believe, at I installed my distro's version for some reason I've now forgotten.

EDIT: BTW, I have looked up Flashgot. It isn't a download manager; it's a plugin to let you use other download managers with Firefox. I'm hoping it will force Firefox to use d4x on my system. You may also want to look at this:

Fireofx plus the Flashgot extension work quite well along with Kget.

Agreed. This is the setup I use on my Gentoo box and it works really well.
