Default Why is JDownloader refusing to start downloads?

When we add new links to the "Downloads" tab, they don't start automatically. Twice today I had to use "Force Download" to start them. One from Megaupload, other from Filesonic. It simply stays that way, not starting, as if the program was just waiting me to instruct to start, to push a button.

For example, I have 3 files being downloaded now, one from Fileserve, other Filejungle, other Megaupload. After the MU DL ended, there was another MU link to be started. But it wasn't.

The Filesonic link didn't started the DL automatically after I added for the first time. Is this a bug? If isn't, do you need some data (from me) to help identifying what's wrong?

BTW, I am using the last Java version, 6 update 30.

Then push the start button.
And check the "Start after adding" check box in Linkgrabber pane.

That option is already checked.

I will continue to use "Force Download to Start", but I wonder if this is a bug, look at the screen:

Did you see the > (Alt + I) button already selected? So it should have started the Fileserve link. Instead it's waiting for my response...

At least in this case I need to start each download manually, since it's using a CAPTCHA that JDownloader can't recognize (and I don't have a Fileserve premium account), so no problem here.

I believe JDownloader is starting each download automatically, yes, but sometimes (and more than once) this sort of thing happens. And if the > button (Alt + I) is already selected, then ALL downloads should start automatically, regardless of what button we push.

Very funny picture. Sorry, what is (Alt + I) button?
Your screen capture is very wide, but the important thing is not there: Max Dls.
And if you have a long list, maybe down there some links are trying and occupy the download slot.

@GKar

You shouldn't have to "Force Download" links if the value of your "Max.Dls." setting is sufficiently high. Even if there is a captcha the download should start automatically.

It is set to 0, so there is no download limit for each server. Or do you mean another option besides that one?

About the Alt + I (>) I believe it's called "Start downloads" in english.

So if > is already selected, JDownloader was instructed to start all downloads automatically. Right?

Maybe it's just a delay that happens sometimes, or as you have pointed out, the fact that I have a total of 2204 links and 248 packages in the "Downloads" tab. However, when the download didn't started I only had 3 links downloading at this moment.

I think I found it:

Connections: 2 - Downloads: 2 - Speed: 0

I have changed downloads to 20 ( max ). But what do you mean by Connections: 2? The max number of links that can be started automatically (by default) is 2? Is that it?

Chunk is the amount of connections per file.
You can download a file with more than one connection depending on host and status (free/premium).
Note that the total amount of connections is Max.Dls * Max.Connections so using 20 and 20 you'll have 400 connections at all which is waaay too much.
3 connections and 4 simultan downloads should be enough.
