HI,I have Windows XP (greek version)

Is there any way that i could use getright while i am surfing using firefox

for example with microsoft explorer getright has an option that when I want to download something getright will start downloading it automatically

In other words could getright replace firefox's download manager?

thanks once more for your help, Sakaman

No.

"GetRight" is only compatible with the Windows IE at this time.

According to their website, Getright will work with Firefox.

" GetRightŪ

Download manager and accelerator software
Accelerate Downloads: get a file from several servers simultaneously
Download recovery if connection is lost or computer crashes
Works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, AOL, and MSN
Easy to use for the novice and powerful for the professional
No spyware
http://www.getright.com/

It is $25. There are many available for free, but it looks like Getright will work, but it needs a plugin.

"Opera/Netscape6&7/Mozilla/Firefox Plugin. Headlight. If you use the Opera, Firefox, Netscape 6/7, or Mozilla web browsers, this plugin lets you do some of the same click monitoring that GetRight can do with Internet Explorer. NOTE that a subset of these plugins is now included built into GetRight 5.2 and higher. On the config, General--Monitor--More Browsers page is where you can turn it on/off for different web browsers."
http://www.getright.com/addons.html

Mozilla or Firefox user? FlashGot is an extension that lets you use GetRight as the download manager from Mozilla, Firefox, and other Mozilla based browsers
http://www.getright.com/opera.html

By the way, the FlashGot page lists many freeware download managers as well.

Thanks Enthusiast for digging out that information!

I missed the need for the plugin.

thanks for helping Enthusiast and KoanYorel

It worked. Actually if I had searched getright configuration I wouldn't have to ask for your help.
