Possible Duplicates:
Download manager to replace GetRight?
Download manager for file hosting sites like Megaupload, Mediafire

FlashGet has a Save as Default feature for saving logins and passwords for sites like rapidshare, filesonic etc. It does not work. I have to re-enter the login details every time I download a file.

Any ideas how to resolve it?

Or can you suggest an alternative 'free' download manager that has features similar to FlashGet and also saves passwords for such sites?

I personally use JDownloader. It's free, open source, and cross-platform (done in Java).

It allows you to enter premium account information, and automatically download files from nearly all file sharing websites. Furthermore, it has built-in capcha detection (but may ask for human intervention if the pattern is too difficult to decipher).

Built-in Captcha detection? That's worth paying for. Only if Web Browsers had that ability. Oh wait, why doesn't someone just develop a plugin (ActiveX or whatever) for IE that can do that? – uSeRnAmEhAhAhAhAhA Mar 27 '14 at 13:09
