The Internet Download Manager CC extension is no longer officially supported by Mozilla, as of publication, so it's no longer available in the directory of extensions directly downloadable in Firefox 35. However, you can still download the extension from the developer's website. After downloading and installing it, enable it like all other extensions using the Add-on Manager in Firefox. If you have an older version of IDMCC, disable and remove it first from Firefox before installing the newer version from the developer's website.
