...I clicked on the "Automatic Proxy Detection" button, the output message was "Found Proxies: 0".
"Automatic proxy detection" queries the system/browser for proxies and imports those.

By default JDownloader will only use first possible proxy for free download and then switch to next one once the limit is reached -> doesn't increase parallel downloads.
You can change Settings->Advanced Settings-> GeneralSettings.freeproxybalancemode to let JDownloader use multiple proxies at the same time and thus download multiple files at the same time as free user.
RANDOM -> Choose next possible random proxy
CYCLE -> First, next, next,next..
BALANCE-> try to balance free downloads over available proxies.
JDownloader will NOT use multiple proxies/switch for downloads with accounts to prevent account blocking because of multiple IPs.
