Can anyone recommend a good (cheap or free) download manager that works with XP and firefox 1.5.

FreshDownload from click here

Been using it with dialup and broadband for years; it's regularly updated although it's not necessary to update if you are not interested in a new feature(s).

Will also Resume downloads after a dropped connection, has no ads or any other unwanted baggage and is simple to configure.

I'm also using XP Pro and Firefox 1.5 but been using FreshDownload since Windows 98 days.
