Browser Integration

IDM integration into my browser does not work. What should I do?
Download panel for video is not shown or shown in some wrong place. What should I do?
My browser is not listed in "Options->General" IDM dialog. How can I integrate IDM into it?
Please make sure that you have installed the latest version of IDM.

If your browser is Internet Explorer based, please click here. If it is FireFox based, click here. If it is Chromium based, click here.

1. If you browser is not Internet Explorer or FireFox, the only option to integrate IDM into your browser is to enable "Use advanced browser integration" option in "Options->General" IDM dialog (arrow 1 on the image). Then check that integration into your browser is also enabled (arrow 2 on the image).

2. If IDM shows some error when you try to enable advanced browser integration, please read this instruction.

3. Also integration may not work when browser is launched in Admin mode. This can happen not only if you do this intentionally but when you launch your browser from some intermediary program like Total Commander that is launched in Admin mode or if you use some portable version with custom launcher.

4. If your browser is not in the list, you have to press "Add browser..." button (arrow 3 on the image). Then locate your browser executable file. IDM will add it to the list and start getting downloads from it.
