Here is a free download manager add-on for Firefox, named Turbo Download Manager. It supports multi-threading to download large files in less than normal time. You can set up to 10 threads to download a large file.
It has all those basic options that you find in good download managers. You can start downloading multiple files, pause, and resume downloads. If you manually enter a file to download process, then you can set up to 10 threads, but if you directly click on a download link, then the threads are set to 5 by default.
This Firefox add-on is under development currently, but I didn’t face any trouble while downloading the files using it. This add-on can might fail to download some files (that don’t support multi-threading), but most of the large files were downloaded successfully by me.
The screenshot above shows the download progress and multiple threads used by this free download manager add-on.
