Changes in version 1.52:
# Add support for Mozilla Firefox.
# Improve integration with Mozilla. The object would be to get functionality similar to the IE integration, e.g. that Star Downloader will use specified extensions instead of hard coded ones.
# Automatic configurations for popular antivirus programs.
# Add the parameter %F for file name in Options/Anti-Virus to satisfy anti-virus programs that needs parameters sent in a certain order. Also add %S for short file name (DOS-style).
# Some minor changes.
# If you use IE6 and add an extension for Star Downloader to intercept, which IE6 normally doesn’t provide a download dialog for, Star Downloader won’t intercept the extension.
# Some minor fixes.
