If you regularly come upon websites that list direct links to mp3 music files you might find the Firefox extension Play Them All handy. Play Them All automatically scans the entire website for links to mp3 music. It creates a m3u file - that's a playlist file - containing all the mp3 music files found on the website which can be downloaded and played on the favorite mp3 music player.

Virtually no music player can parse websites for mp3 music links. That's where Play Them All comes into play. Instead of having to download all mp3 music files manually to play them locally one simply has to press the Play Them All button. The extension adds an entry to the Firefox tools menu. It does come with a button as well which can be added to a Firefox toolbar to simplify usage.

Once pressed or selected it will scan the entire page for links to mp3 music. The Firefox extension will then open a Open / Save download window. The extension is currently in experimental stage meaning that you need to log into the Mozilla website to download it from there.

The developer has only tested the extension on Linux using XMMS. Tests with AIMP2 and iTunes on Windows were not successful.

Update: The Play Them All extension for Firefox has been removed from the Mozilla Add-ons repository. I'm not aware of an alternative that is offering a similar feature set at this point in time.

You find a couple of mp3 related music add-ons on the Firefox add-ons website, but they usually are only designed for a specific site and not all sites that you come upon on the Internet. Still, it may be worth a shot so visit the site using the link above and see if you can find an add-on that works exactly as you want.
