Manual installation of IDM plugin for FireFox and other Mozilla based browsers.
If our add-on is not available in FireFox or other Mozilla based browser, you may need to install it manually. Press FireFox options button (arrow 1 on the image) and then on "Add-ons" menu item (arrow 2 on the image).

Then open IDM folder where you installed IDM ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Download Manager\" by default).
Here you have 3 XPI files. They have the same name, but a different number at the end. Select appropriate add-on for your browser basing on FireFox version that is used in it. Please look carefully at the following:
