http://rapidshare.de is ad-financed file-sharing service with somewhat confusing way to download shared files. Basically, many users has to do same repetitive and useless tasks.
When pointed to a download link, rapidshare user must select if he is a free or premium user, an from this:

[copy or print]
<form action="http://rapidshare.de" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="uri" value=" [same download link here like only relative, i.e. w/o hostname] "><table border="4" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
Choose download-type</b></td><td align="center"><b>Free</b></td><td align="center"><b><font color="green" size="3"><b>PREMIUM</b></font></td></tr>

i guess it's absolutely useless (why not read a cookie  instead?). Nothing is advertised on that page so rapidshare and its users won't miss anything from some automation

further, free user has to wait for final (other than initial)  download link. (anybody interested should check this weird stuff manually)
Some community of rapidshare users use same password for all shared files (.rar's), and it would be nice to have  a minimal GUI gizmo to:
1. submit that "uri" value (initial URL in fact)
2. get final download link and download the file
3. execute " rar e -password downloaded_archive_name"

GUI will be extremely helpful for new users who are often confused with rapidshare
Options to enter URL and password (possibly - path to rar.exe) are desired

I didn't find any ToS at rapidshare. FAQ doesn't prohibit automated download, just restricts general download managers (FlashGet etc.) use to premium users

Thank you

Nice to see tool integrates with Firefox, but i can't get it to work
I see is "File not found", while a file actually downloads  (usual way).
Tried IE and standalone tool, with same result
I tried to understand code in rsdl.xpi and found that it opens a new window and supposed to work with  "rapidshare://" URLs (i don't know javascript or XUL well, might have missed something).

I've found this tool:
http://www.chouck-wap.nm.ru/get-rapidshare.rar

It's written in Perl (archive contains source too) and supports RapidShare, QuickFile and MyTempDir.
I see some room for improvements: tool retrieves download link and passes it to clipboard (for download managers to download). I think that it would be nice to pass link to default browser.
Unpacking with pre-defined password would be nice too.

Get-Rapidshare from previous post doesn't work now (due to changes by rapidshare i guess)
Also it has no GUI an unpacks perl runtime binaries to temp and doesn't delete them.
I've found Linkgrabber which has GUI, works through a proxy. Works with Rapidshare, Megaupload, Ultrashare & Qfile.

I've used rapget before, and if you use tor then you can point rapget's proxy to use tor, and then you can download multiple files with rapget.
