Here is a typical plug-in you might have with almost any browser. It works with all direct download
links:

Millions of file sharing or cloud storage sites use redirects. There are no direct download links.

Most browser default download applets are horrible. I've used FlashGet since the first version,
so I wanted FlashGet to launch as my default on all file sharing sites. FlashGot is the solution.
It appears in the file "Save As" dialog box, so I can select FlashGet as my default.

FlashGot is a great add-on, but there is a problem. FlashGet loads the proper URL and filename,
but the download refuses to start! I need an expert to explain why this is happening.

Thanks guys.
