I think from better to bad soft... the version 10, if i close Firefox, the tab download windows continue to download till ends it. But in the new version really i dont like so i return to istall the old version 10. Sorry for the company but hope they make better the firefox. I will never install the new version untill they fix the error.

None of these replies or replies to similar threads are helpful. This behavior is simply a pain in the butt. I don't mind that the download window has been relocated, but apparently the consequence prohibits automatically opening a separate window for downloading.

You guys broke it, now fix it, dammit! There should be no reason to keep the whole browser open just to continue a download that has been started.
