Downloader Icon not showing in menu bar?

Posted

I have noticed after updating Firefox 12.0 the Downloadhelper's 4.9.9 icon is not showing on the top left such as around menu bar.

However, after doing some settings it appeared in the status bar which is painful. I wonder how could I show animated moving icon in the Menu bar or anywhere but on top left side?

PS* I had taken some screen shots but could not attach here.

Chosen solution

See this article -> How to change Extension settings

  • open DownloadHelper's Options -> General panel -> Remove Checkmark from "Show in Status bar" -> click OK

Now use the following article to place DownloadHelper icon wherever you want on the Navigation Toolbar

Check and tell if its working.
