Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a download manager (wget) and a browser (friefox) running at the same. Some times the network bandwidth becomes bad, and browsing becomes hell. At that time, when the page loading, I pause the download by opening the downloader. After loading page I resume the download.
Is it possible to automate the process of pause/resume using a keyboard shortcut (say F10 ) ?
