After a while MD stops downloading files, but there are still files in the queue!
Also, some of the files are not renamed to their original extension, and still have the .Mass extension. I can`t quit the program normally, and need to use the taskmanager to end the program!

Furthermore, I only donwload 1 or 2 files at a time! Sometimes I need to redownload some files (because MD messed up the download and made the file corrupt). When I select like 10 files it will start downloading all 10 files simultaniously. The"re should be an option like "Download all at once" and "Download only maximum active downloads".

I`m sure this can be a wonderfull program at it`s own, and superb add-on for OE. But it needs a lot of polishing!

Good Luck!

CTRL+F5 works perfect for this (shameshame)

Dear Sir / Madam,

> After a while MD stops downloading files, but there are still files in the queue!

Which status do these files have?
Could you please make a screenshot of the Mass Downloader Projects list for a sutuation when download is stopped, but some files are available to start?
Please send it to support@metaproducts.com with a short problem description.
Thanks!

Yes, you can use Ctrl+F5 or program menu Download | "Start X priority downloads" item.
