I need to download a bunch of files from a website but I don't want to have to click on each file to add it to downloadall or whatever.

The structure of the website is as follows:

The directory has loads of randomly named files with .doc extensions. I can't use the batch feature because the files don't start or end with the same characters e.g. 001...100.

Any ideas/

Is there an "index" page containing these links? If there is, many download add-ons allow starting all (or several) links at once. If there's no such page, is there any pattern of file naming? – bytebuster Sep 4 '12 at 23:24

Firefox and the DownThemAll extension should be able to take care of this easily.
