hi,
the last time I used video downloadhelper, I seem to recall closing firefox while using downloadhelper while files were not finished downloading. I forgot about the downloading files. later I found a few .part files in the dwhelper folder (where the files go).
is there a way to be warned (I seem to recall browsers doing this) that I am downloading, "are you sure you want to close?"

I know that downloadhelper is an extension, they probably have their own forum, but it couldn't hurt to ask here.
I am using linux mint.
thanks for your time.

You're correct. It doesn't hurt but any tweaks to the extension to add that functionality would be the responsibility of the extension's author.

Unless you do a one-off version of your own, based on that one.
