What is Motrix WebExtension?

Motrix WebExtension is a Firefox add-on designed to enhance your file downloading experience. Once installed and with Motrix Download Manager running in the background, it redirects all your downloads to Motrix instead of using the default browser download manager. This boosts your download speed and management efficiency. Note that the extension doesn't auto-launch Motrix; thus, the download manager should be running beforehand.
