Please note that it's strictly forbidden to use command line from any 3rd party extensions and add-ons hosted in Chrome Webstore, Mozilla AMO web site, and in Microsoft Store. The reason is that many users think that it's an official extension/add-on and they are confused to install it. As the result these add-on/extensions cannot provide the necessary level of integration with the browser. Internet Download Manager users contact us and complain about such 3rd party extensions. Also it's prohibited to use such Impersonation/Deceptive Behavior in all store policies. We will complain to store administration about such extensions/add-ons which confuse our users. We will block all such extensions in Internet Download Manager because they abuse our license agreement, usage policy, and store policies.
