Okay enough with PMs about how to download:
Link Protector does work, but links id shift every now and then to prevent bot and other stuff from accessing links in bulk! If it doesn't work, just refresh that topic and try again!
Yes you can bypass Linkbucks since they not hardmasking. I can say for sure that 90% of the links on the forum works (mirror exclusive). More links lies within uploadjockey.com (tonnes more, use that if your download speed is slow for other host).
And you should get Adblock - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865
