    Can I install DownThemAll! manually into the portable Tor/Firefox bundle? If so, where would I copy it to? Thx.

    Just download and install it as you would any other addon via FF

    Due to the fact that Torbuttion when enabled (a part of all Tor bundles now), turns off FF add-ons when Tor is actively connected to the Tor network - I am not sure that DownThemAll! would be able to work over Tor. I am not sure that all FF add-ons are disabled when Torbutton is enabled.

    To check this, I would assume one would simply have to right-click the mouse in a website being viewed with FF (with the DownThemAll! add-on installed) during a Tor session to see if DownThemAll! can be selected to download whatever you are looking at with FF.

    I installed DownThemAll! successfully into portable Firefox and it works fine on direct download links with Torbutton enabled.
