    I don't know if there's any integration of DAP with Mozilla. However, I personally copy the link in mozilla and then paste the link into DAP using "Add URL".

    DAP only downloads the exact file you tell it download. When you manually insert a URL, you need to copy the exact address for the file you are downloading into Download Accelerator Plus (DAP). One way to do it is to just right click on the link and select copy link location (or whatever it's called in Mozilla) and then paste into DAP:
    Here's an example of a screensaver on that page that you mentioned:
    http://www.jermar.com/scenesaver.exe
    You would have copied that link above and pasted it into DAP and DAP would download it.

    What he said lol

    umm... there are alternate download managers if you want it all done within Mozilla rather than having to right click.

    Off the top of my head i can think of GetRight and FlashGet. They both have plugins that will intercept .exe, .com, .zip, .rar (and a crap load) and send it to FlashGet or GetRight (depends on your flavour).

    I personally use FlashGet but without the plugin. Most of the time its a small download so i just leave Mozilla to do it.

    Mozilla actually has a decent Download Manager standard but it doesn't have the multi download threading that other ones have.
