How to turn off download panel pop-up in version 98.0

more options

This is more of a convenience issue but the new download panel pop-up from the download arrow is very distracting. I couldn't find an option to turn it off so I had to go into the config and turn the true flag false for this "improvement". Is there a better way of disabling this pop-up and if not will there be in future versions of firefox?

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.

The answer from cor-el is almost completely beside the point. The original post states clearly that the feature has already been turned off in about:config. The questions were 1. Is there a better i.e. less cumbersome way? Judging by the answer, obviously not. 2. Will there be one in future versions? This wasn't answered. Implicit is of course a request that such an option should be added. I hope that was added to some todo list.

I would like to add my vote to such an option and also to add a request that when you add things, that impact workflows or the GUI always provide easy ways to turn them off i.e. without having to google after about:config entries.
