Well, Tor is JUST a SOCKS proxy - so make it set into the download manager's settings and you're good to go! A separate remark if you're about to use a download manager from dot-onion sites: make sure they're properly locally resolved and routed to Tor's TransPort


As I've searched HERE, currently FDM does not support SOCKs proxy and it is their TODO list. Therefore you should use some external applications for tunneling the system traffic through TOR (or a specific program) such as Proxifier. You can run TOR browser in order to run the SOCKs proxy on your system, then add the proxy server to Proxifier as below. Proxifier Server Setting.

Then you can add a rule to tunnel FDM traffic through the proxy, as below: Proxifier Rules

However, Proxifier is not free. You can see list of alternative programs in this link.
