Built-in "Download Manager" Needed within Mozilla
Built-in "Download Manager" Needed within Mozilla. Mozilla should have a built-in "Download Manager" like GetRight or Gozilla. It would be the first browser to have this valuable and popular feature integrated into the browser. This is something that is sorely missing from all current large browsers. The features of this Download Manager should include: 1. Resumable downloads (this is a biggie) - see bug 18004 2. Automatically find and add alternate URL's 3. Segmented Downloads (multiple parts of same file at once from one or more URL's) - I can file a separate bug for this, if required. 4. Preferences Settings for default or last used download directory. - see bug 7840 5. The DM could be a MySidebar app. (or as a minimum, multiple downloads would appear in only ONE download window - see bug 25995)

No, this is not a duplicate. The other bug is specifically focused on having one download window for multiple downloads. It merely has the words "download manager" mentioned in the summary, but it is not an INTERNAL Download Manger request. This bug requests a "complete module" that includes ALL features of a full-featured download manager, including but not limited to having one window for multiple downloads.
Peter, add your suggestions to *existing* bugs. You keeps claiming in a lot of your bugs that they're not duplicates because the dupe doesn't include enhancement request x. Please use existing bugs. Verifying duplicate.

i'm must admit i am unclear when a bug is a duplicate and when not. The impression i have so far is that bugs should be as detailed as possible. Frequently, i have requested additional features in a bug only to be told to file a separate report. the other bugs i listed above only deal with specific and individual aspects of a download manager. There is no bug i could find that UNIFIED all these various bugs into one request for the feature: Download Manager. My intention is to make sure that all the various bugs don't get solved in "incompatible" or disparate ways. It would be much nicer if these features were somehow "integrated". If i am understanding something wrong here, please let me know. Thank You.
Just for clarification, its best mention feature request in the origial bug, if the person dealing with the bug sees the feature as something that can go with their work, they will include it, often they will decide to bother with your feature request seperatly once the first bug is fixed, asking you to file it seperatly, possible including a dependence tree. For this example, you would probably want to just mention the features you don't see listed in the other bug that you wish for in this. But it'll probably be best to wait till the other bug has some code landed, so you can see where they are going with it.
