Maybe i wasn't clear enough. I want the downloads window to open in the new tab when i click on show all downloads in the new downloads arrow.

i think this is not possible, see if is useful to create a bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar and set the location to about:downloads.

see if the next add-on is for you : Downloads in Tab add-on


There is setting in the bookmarks to make them open in sidebar always, i wanted to know if there is a setting to make them open in new tab always, individually of course.

from context menu (right click), you know that already


thanks again

Thanks in advance.

You can only open the about:downloads page in a tab via the "Show All Downloads" link when you are in Private Browsing mode. Otherwise you need to use a bookmark or open the page otherwise (see about:about)

thanks a lot for your clarifications. I have done the bookmark thing and i am happy with the sidebar downloads.

I didn't know about private browing showing tabs for downloads. That's where i saw that.

Thanks again. Regards.

Is there a way to get the Download Tab behaviour from Private Browsing the default during normal sessions?

The 'Downloads in Tab' add-on stopped working a long time ago (during 2011). It only works if it's set to automatically open when a download starts. If you click 'Show All Downloads' you get the default window...

You can create a bookmark to open the about:downloads page in a tab (middle-click) or a window (Shift and left-click) or use a bookmark with a keyword (ad) and use that instead.
