But I miss a easy way to start a download from a known URL or from a list of URLs (ASCII-file) like the program "wget" can do it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I think, Bug 142798 is related.
Dupe of 191094?
It's more than the issue of Bug 191094. My idea is to add the ability to download files from different URL-sources. Such URL-sources may be for instance: 1. Direct input from the user 2. Click on a link in current browser page 3. A arbitrarily HTML-page itself. (local file or internet. Download all links at this page) 4. Recursive download (spider) of a HTML-page. (usefull for offline reading) 5. A URL from clipboard 6. A list of URLs from a (text-) file I think, this list may expanded, but at first the Dowload Manager has to get a open interface for URL-sources in any way.

Why not use wget? Having a web browser handle downloads as well as surfing always stroke me as odd. There are download managers for that. I mean, the browser could execute some command to notify the download manager of a new URL to be downloaded, sure. But other than that, I even find the existing functionality extraneous...
@comment #3: 1.+5. this would be same as Bug 191094, in most cases simply enter the url into address bar These are not really necessary IMHO / or already possible: 2. = Right click, Save Link As ... (already possible) 3.+4. use httrack (or similar) for this! 6. use a download manager! What i would like instead is: * mark some text on the webpage and DO something with all marked links, for example: download the link targets (this is Bug 245344 (closed))

The SeaMonkey team has no intention of doing this in main UI, but feel free to develop and add-on for SeaMonkey 2 that does this!
