Hi, i just update today to firefox 26, and with my surprise the download box disappear, then i click on the download option (ctrl + j) and the bookmark open.

Are you devs out of your mind?

I use firefox for years and i love the separate download minibox where i can manage all my downloads, see the download speed, pause, resume and so on, why the hell you remove the best feature of your browser with this crappy bookmark/history integration no one ask? I really don't get it.

Please consider to revert this awfull change, at least make it optional so if i want to use the old download box i can use it.

If nothing will be done i'm forced to remove firefox from my pc and install chrome, after all these years with FF is a shame that you put in bad features like these withourt asking your community before.

Really disappointed, hope you revert the change.

Nice blog post: "Downloading Stuff in Firefox – It’s Better Now"

No, it isn't, not for everyone, anyway - that's why this thread exists.

Ehm NO. The old download box is 100 times better, i can resize, move and check all my downloads ans statistics without be forced to open a new tab now merged into the library. Who design this new unfriedly and unpractical feature have no idea at all how to manage a download window and should be fired immediately. The GUI is a core part of a browser not something irrilevant, make it bad mean your browser will be early abandoned, also changing something that the community never complained at all, is more stupid and retard.

That's how I've already left some feedback. And if I want to read canned responses & blind defenses of anything the FF dev team does, I come here.

Anyways, the thread to watch is here:
