The latest update has made it so Firefox opens the download panel every time I download something, a very obnoxious behavior when downloading a lot of files, and I can't find a way to stop that from happening.

[came across another question that brings up the same issue], but that one focuses more on a site presumably changing about:config rather than the issue of the download panel itself.

Valgt løsning

In Firefox 97 and 98+ there have been changes to the download panel.

You can set this pref to false on the about:config page to prevent opening the download panel on each download.

  • browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Alright, that solved the issue. I hope this option becomes accessible through the configuration menu in the future, so going to about:config isn't required.
