Superb downloader the only problem is integration .
For mozilla it can be solved .
For any download link right click and copy link.

Sorry. I can't get it to work with Portable Firefox either. Only with the Firefox installed locally.

I also can't make it work with FlashGot in portable Firefox. Trying to run FlashGot's download manager detector, it won't detect wxDFast...???

I installed this on my USB drive and tried to run it from the PortableApps launcher. It's looking for a registry key:
"Can't read value of 'HKCR\http\shell\open\command' (error 2: the system cannot find the file specified."
