Automatically close download window Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Addon keeps incrementally getting better. The only thing is that the download window doesn't automatically close when the browser closes which was the default Firefox behavior of the old download window back in the day.

Latest version v.0.6.7 Clear Downloads not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As above. Had to reinstall v.0.6.6

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.7).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Version 0.6.8 addresses at least some of this; e.g., https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/issues/45/private-window-download-loses-file-size#comment-38098688 discusses this.

The latest version no longer shows file size Rated 3 out of 5 stars

new issue with download window Rated 5 out of 5 stars

is there a way to revert the changes they've done in the latest firefox? show download size/info/where its from in the download window again? I don't wish to have to go to library just to check those info.

New issues with FF 52 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Addon still works great but icons have changed with Firefox 52 and the pause button now appears to be corrupt.

Glitch does appear fixed in version 0.6.6 but the icon itself seems blurry and out of focus compared to the cancel button. Progress bar is also larger with a border that wasn't there before.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.5). 

Should be fixed with version 0.6.6.

Absolutely necessary add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As the title says, this add-on is absolutely necessary for users like me.

But as of FF v52.0, Mozilla decided to make downloads look even worse, and now the progress bar of the downloads is a horrible blue mess, instead of using the default windows progress bar.

If there's any way to fix this, I would greatly appreciate it.
If not, then could you at least point me in the right direction?

EDIT: Thank you for the response and the update.
Very interesting info.

The bar is now thicker, but still pretty much the same.
Thank you for trying to fix it though, even though this is clearly Mozilla's doing.

In any case, it isnt actually an issue, more of an aesthetic annoyance.
I.e. I like the animated progress bar from Windows, and I'm used to seeing it whenever there is a file copy or download active, so its also a change from what I am so adamantly used to.

I hope this add-on will continue to exist in this form in the future?
I dont know how or IF it will work when webextentions are the only thing that will work on FF...?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.5). 

Yes, I see what you mean. Hopefully version 0.6.6 fixes it.

It appears to be fallout from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1301384 ("Unify the progress bar styling in the Downloads Panel across platforms") and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1269956 ("[meta] Firefox Download Panel UX Redesign").

It also, in my tests, occurs in the completely fresh-profile stock Download Library pane in FF52 and FF53, not just the previous version of this add-on.

Perhaps this is because https://bug1269956.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=8791134 ("Download Panel & Content Handler" design document) attached to bug 1269956 linked above explicitly says on page/slide 6 that the Download library is "out of scope" because "it is planned to blend into activity streams", i.e. Mozilla appears fine breaking it because they may deprecate it soon regardless.

Works well in Pale Moon 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Could you also make it compatible to "MinimizeToTray revived (MinTrayR)" so that it can be minimized to tray?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.5).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

I re-checked this, and what I wrote before still applies as of the apparently current version "MinimizeToTray revived 1.3.2":

I looked at MinimizeToTray revived 1.1.2 and its chrome.manifest very specifically applies to chrome://mozapps/content/downloads/downloads.xul which actually still exists and now displays an empty shell of the former downloads window. This add-on cannot/should not take over that URL, since the chrome://mozapps/ tree is reserved for some built-in Firefox code rather than extension code.

Thus, so long as MinimizeToTray revived's chrome manifest reads:
overlay chrome://mozapps/content/downloads/downloads.xul chrome://mintrayr/content/mozapps/downloads.xul

It will not apply to the Downloads Window add-on.

Been using the addon since the day Firefox removed it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry to report a bug through here, but I currently can't view my downloads. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. Window appears blank even though I'm apparently downloading something.

Edit: Bug fixed immediately! You're the MAN!

At least I can truthfully say that this addon is always on point, not just in terms of function, but also with developer interaction.

Restored Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Another fix for customisations taken away in later FF versions without any good reason. Without these add-ons to restore sanity I would've ditched FF long ago.

Very nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for restoring this classic and basic functionality. Also, seems to work fine with latest Pale Moon 27.

Issue with Nightly 51.0x Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly, except with an XML parsing error on Nightly and dev edition.

Other than that it is amazing! :)

Fixed in Bitbucket repository

Will make it to AMO at some point.

Until then: https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/downloads/downloads_window_2016-09-04_rev2.xpi which includes the fix https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/commits/04ff9fedb8bfde4c7bf375e0aeac2ccebd639270

There is a little problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After I close FF 48.0 downloads window stays opened

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Intended, by design

This is a key use case of this extension and one of the reasons I created it to begin with. WONTFIX.

If you want to quit FF, there's a "quit" menu command/keyboard shortcut/etc. "Close" does just what it sounds like. It does not necessarily quit FF.

Works perfectly! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

RightClick-"Copy download link" grayed in 0.6.0 :( Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Fantastic addon but for some reason (I can't believe this is not noticed, maybe it's because of my locale setting) in latest 0.6 version I can't right click on download in progress and select "Copy download link" anymore...!? CTRL+C is working fine, but that right click menu is grayed out :( Can you please look into that, thanks you in advance,
Regards

P.S. Can you please put icon.png in root of your addon .XPI...? Almost every extension have it's own icon when looking at Add-ons in Firefox, only Download Windows has default green puzzle :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0). 

Both issues addressed for next AMO release

https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/downloads has a build from today which should address both issues.

Doesn't really work in Fx48.0a2 (Developer) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Dear Ungram, thank you for last version: in Fx47.0 (beta) it works correctly, but in 48.0a2 (Developer) its something awful, even if e10s is disabled: http://storage1.static.itmages.ru/i/16/0525/h_1464187302_4019864_5bfdf730bf.jpg
Though, in principle, it works, but window stays opened after the download finish. Please, if its possible, adapt the extension for the browser versions higher than 47.0.

Fixed window closing issue

I can also see the graphical button display issue your screenshot depicts, but at least with the fix above, the add-on is vaguely functional in FF48. I encourage you to report bugs using https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/issues?status=new&status=open as well -- AMO isn't ideal for this.

Does not work in version 47 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After updating to 47 beta, it no longer shows downloads. Instead, only a white background is shown in the area where downloads are supposed to be.

Works great as expected any update for e10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great for the official channel. Was wondering if there is an upcoming update for e10? Or are you waiting for things to finalize for committing?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Basically, yes.

It also works in the beta channel, just not, without disabling e10s, the dev channel.

I'm going to try avoiding creating an e10s XUL version when XUL's disappearing, or becoming unsupported, perhaps within a year or two also.

Thus, I'm going to target WebExtensions. This add-on uses mostly the downloads and history APIs. Until a couple of weeks ago, the downloads APIs were blatantly inadequately implemented, and the history APIs still are. I'm watching both tracking bugs (downloads and history), so I can follow this as it happens.

My plan is to initially wait for the next FF release/channel rotation/etc, and at that point re-assess how the APIs look.

bringt das alte DL fenster zurück, aber verbesserungsfähig Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Zwar erhält man damit das DL Fenster zurück, das dem alten bewährten und von den dauer-zugekifften Entwicklern entsorgt wurde, jedoch ist die Schriftgröße der Dateinamen zu groß (ca 14px und könnte 10px sein), auch zeigt es immer wieder falsche Symbole nach dem Download an (meist ein Hypertext Symbol) und obwohl es korrekt herunterlädt, bei den abgeschlossenen DLs die falschen Dateinamen in der Liste.

Aber man möchte ja nicht zu viel meckern und muss dankbar sein, dass es Leute gibt, die versuchen, den immer mehr
verpfuschten Feuerfuchs wieder nutzbar machen. An der Stelle einen großen Dank!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5). 

Thank you for your review.

The font size isn't really set in absolute terms, but rather it derives from being one CSS font size larger than "font-size: small;". It's actually 16px on my system, which does seem excessive. After removing that size increase vs background default, it's now 13px here.

As far as (trusting Google Translate) repeatedly incorrect icons, if you look in e.g., the library window (which one can access via e.g., Show All Bookmarks -> "Downloads", if the incorrect icons also show up there, that's an underlying FF issue.

I don't understand the Google Translate translation "closed DLs the wrong file name in the list" enough to comment.

Further follow-ups would be most productive if you filed bugs at https://bitbucket.org/ungram/downloads_window/issues/
