DownThemAll: DownThemAll! 1.1.9

DownThemAll! 1.1.9 was released.

It is a bugfix release.

The download link will redirect you to addons.mozilla.org.

DownThemAll! 1.1.9 is compatible with

  • Firefox
    3.0 – 3.6.*
  • Flock
    2.0 – 2.5.*
  • Seamonkey
    2.0 – 2.0.* (limited support for the development versions, limited functionality)

Limitations

  • The bleeding edge applications (such as Minefield, Songbird) are not thoroughly tested by us

High memory consumption in Windows 7

There were multiple reports that using DownThemAll! causes a high memory consumption in Windows 7. This is caused by a bug in the Windows 7 Filtering Platform (WFP), which some software, especially Anti-Virus tools, uses to filter incoming traffic (for malicious content).

DownThemAll! isn’t actually buggy in this regard, nor does it explicitly trigger this bug. However since DownThemAll! is often used to download large files using multiple connections this windows bug becomes more visible.

Microsoft released a hotfix for this, which we recommend you install if you’re affected by this:
Knowledge Base article with download link.
The bugfix hence is supposed to fix any high memory consumption you may also be experiencing with other download managers or internet tools.
We are not sure if this hotfix is also provided via the Windows Update service.

Thanks to one of our users for pointing this out.
