Ubuntu: How to change default downloader on Firefox


I want to change default downloader of Firefox because it is very slow. I want to set uGet. I installed uGet downloader, but when I click some download link it start with Firefox's own downloader. What do I have to do?


The following info is outdated, please see "Update" at the bottom

You may use the "uGet Integration" extension by Gobinath to replace the default download manager by uGet.

This extension requires "uGet Chrome Wrapper" package to be installed. To install the package from Gobinath's PPA run the following commands first:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slgobinath/uget-chrome-wrapper  sudo apt update  sudo apt install uget-chrome-wrapper  

Then install the extension from here. Once it is installed, click on the uGet icon and toggle on "Interrupt downloads":

In 2018, uget-chrome-wrapper has been adopted by uGet team as an official add-on and renamed uget-integrator and so uget-chrome-wrapper is discontinued. Therefore, uninstall uget-chrome-wrapper and install uget-integrator.

To remove uget-chrome-wrapper, run

sudo apt remove uget-chrome-wrapper  

To remove Gobinath's old PPA, run

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:slgobinath/uget-chrome-wrapper  sudo apt update  

Then add the new PPA for uGet Team by running

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:uget-team/ppa  sudo apt update  

Finally, install uget-integrator by running

sudo apt install uget-integrator  

Also update the Firefox add-on to version 2.1.2 or later.


Just install DownloadThemAll Firefox AddOn and enjoy!!!!
