Decided to try out FDM. Installed the browser add-on as well in Firefox.

The issue I am having is that it does not intercept the downloads. This option is checked in the settings as well.

So I installed a Download manager that does not download anything. :ROFLMAO:

There is an issue with firefox i think, they didn't write the browser extension properly to intercept downloads, for chromium based browsers the browser addon works great.

IDM is the best, I have tried everything else but none of them are as good as IDM. Why did you go for yearly license, just get the Lifetime license. I got the IDM lifetime license for 3 devices around 7 years ago and it is working fine and getting all the latest updates.
