Another nifty Firefox add-on

One complaint that I've long had about Firefox, and it's a small one, is that darned Download window that pops up whenever I, um, download something. Looks like someone created a minor tweak to make the window more unobtrusive. It's called the Download Statusbar.

You can find more info at the development homepage, including these cool features:


  • Auto-hides when not in use
  • Single-click pause and resume
  • Pause all, Resume all, Cancel all, and Remove all finished - available from the context menu of the bar itself
  • Run a completed file with a double click on its finished box. Open containing folder, remove, and rename from the context menu
  • In-line view of percent done, speed in KB/sec, KB downloaded so far, and remaining time, can be customized in the options.
  • Updating tooltip provides a more detailed view of the current download, including source, destination, size of the download and the remaining time
  • Option to automatically clear files after a specified number of seconds
  • Copy source URL from the context menu
  • Stop downloads and save them for the next browser session.
  • Delete a file from your system from the context menu
  • Localized strings for translation
  • Download history can be viewed and configured to only keep the last # download items
  • Option to start virus scanner when a download completes
  • On browser close, option to continue downloads in download manager

Looks good to me. Then again, I AM a geek.
