Summary

This extension pauses any downloads that are initiated outside of the user's preferred download time window and resumes them inside the time window. Any downloads initiated inside the time window are allowed to progress normally.

You can amend the time window via the Download Scheduler's settings button on the toolbar. This allows specification of the start and end hour of the required download window.

This will ensure that any downloads do not use up your ISP's data limitations and allows you to download files at a time when your ISP offers free data usage, often during the small hours of the morning.

User reviews

I have used this add-on in the past and had the same issues as people have spoken about in the other reviews (downloads cancelling instead of downloading once it hits 12am), but I recently added it back on again and I'm happy to say that it has been working perfectly! Thanks to the developer for fixing the bugs! This add-on is a life and data saver!

Although I appreciate the time a programmer must spend on writing add-ons, it is sad when it does not work on my configuration. Not once, for the past less than 10 downloads, did the scheduler actually started the download during the specified hours. Downloads say 'Paused' next to them when started, but in the morning it is changed to 'failed' Hope it gets fixed and will continue to try the updates. (or look for another scheduler add-on) I hope to change my review to 5 stars in the very near future, when it works for me.
