If you are addicted to download stuffs like movies, music and some apps which are quite large in size without installing any download manager then you know that download speed of Firefox is quite slow and is limited to some kbps. Selecting and installing an external download manager as per our requirement itself is a tedious task and not reliable in many cases. Firstly most of the download managers  are not available for free and secondly it puts some extra load on system resources. However if you really don’t want to waste time in installing resource hogging download managers and want to remain stick with conventional Firefox download then it’s better for you to improve and accelerate the download speed of Firefox.

However it has some compatibility issues with the certain versions of Firefox. As I checked it is not compatible with 8.0.x and 10.0.x versions of Firefox. I think it’s most likely compatible with older versions of Firefox.
