The the download arrow only appears shortly after a download. I want to go back and install something I downloaded yesterday. I tried the following but the download arrow is not there.

Why don't I see the download arrow on my toolbar?

The down arrow indicating downloads used to be on my toolbar but is now gone. If I customize Firefox I can't find the arrow to drag onto the toolbar, so the only way I can see my downloads is if I go to my homepage and then click downloads at the bottom of the screen. Chosen solution

Right-click an empty area of the tab bar and choose Customize. Click the Restore Defaults button near the bottom right.

Chosen solution

Enter about:config in the url bar and set browser.download.autohideButton = false.

Note that you should always see the download button in customize mode. If that isn't the case then click Restore Defaults.

In normal mode you only get the download button on the toolbar if you have downloaded something during the current session. In customize mode you can left-click the download button to toggle "Auto-Hide in Toolbar". In normal mode you can right-click the download button to find the "Auto-Hide in Toolbar" item once the download button is visible because you have downloaded something during the current session.
