Comment 5 for bug 1006650

Dom,
For Firefox, check out http://flashgot.net/

Calibre, at least in my setup, copies the file to its managed library, and then deletes from the "Automatic Adding" directory. This seems to be by design, and a documented feature. And the way you want the program to work, unless you want to add the same file many many times.

There may also be something available with calibre's command line tools as well, I am also looking at that.
