I recently closed and re-opened Firefox to refresh it. Now, when I download an attachment from Gmail, a pop up appears next to my downloads icon. How do I turn that off?

I didn't realize I could right-click on the icon. It looks like, if I uncheck "Show Panel When Download Begins", it stops doing what I was trying to get it to stop doing.

Hi KT, I simply dragged the Download button back into the Customize palette. I use the Library button -> Downloads instead.
