DownThemAll (DTA) is a download manager/accelerator extension for Mozilla Firefox, licensed under the GPL. It can pause and restart supporting downloads at any time, without losing data, and enables users to download all the links, images or embedded object contained in a webpage. Both HTTP and FTP protocols are supported.[4]

Multi-part downloading[edit]

One of the main features of DownThemAll is the capability for multi-part download. This feature is similar to features in GetRight and Download Accelerator Plus. When enabled, this allows the user to download the file in pieces, then combining the pieces after a completed download; thus increasing the download speed when connected to a slow server.[4] 1.0b1 adds Metalink support which allows multiple URLs for each file to be passed to DTA, along with checksums and other information.[4]

Download filtering[edit]

When extracting links from a page, the user may choose to download only specific files (for example: all pdfs) using wildcard or regular expression inclusive filters.[4]
