"Download all" IE integration

This is not a question or a request of information, but the solution of a problem (at least for me). I hope that this serves to others.

Since 2.7 Build 517 version, I have a problem of integration in IE: when I start the "Download all" (right-clicking in IE), the familiar "Mass Downloader add projects preview" does not appear and all sort of files are added to the download queue, and I receive the message "There is no valid URLs. Please check the Integration | File Types section of the Options dialog."

I found the first and second step for the solution in this forum:
In the "Options", sub-section "Integration-Browsers"
- the check-box "MS Internet Explorer" must be UNCHECKED
- the check-box "Retrieve file information from server" must be CHECKED
After this modifications, things went very better but there was still a (little) problem: the file "download.dat" was always queued, with the "Begin." comment. I found that in the file "add_all.htm" in the installation directory ("C:\Program Files\Mass Downloader\") there was a line:
MassDown.AddUrl("Begin.", "Begin.");
I commented this line:
// MassDown.AddUrl("Begin.", "Begin.");
et voila, things go perfectly.

The strange thing is that this line was always present, but only starting from 2.7 Build 517 version it causes a problem. I use the last version (3.0 Build 577 Service Release 1) but I think that the two check-box settings and the modification of the file go well for all the previous versions.

After some tests, the problem has happened again, even with the three settings described in my precedent mail.
I have uninstalled the current version and reinstalled the 2.6 Build 447 SR1 release dated 12-Dec-03. So this bug remains unsolved for more than a year.

My Internet Explorer is 6.0 with SP1 (6.0.2800.1106).
My O.S. is Windows 2000 with SP4 installed.

Sorry for the delay in the response, I have checked the "Notify me about new messages in the topic via e-mail", but I have received no notification.
