Old FF Download Box

I believe in 20.0, FF would prompt you when your download finished and it would show the open or save file box.

In 21.0 and 22.0 it doesn't do that. It says downloads finished in right hand corner, you click that, and then it shows the open or save file dialog box. Anyway to just have the dialog box show when download finishes?

I don't think that is a good solution to recommend, unless I'm the only one that had problems with it.

Half of the downloads would stall and not even finish. Also, you cannot view the download at all and once it finishes, you can't click it to view it so you have to go to wherever is your default location for downloads just to open or run the file.

If downloads hang at the last minute (just before reaching 100%), the cause might be antivirus software which tries to scan the file and during that process hangs the Firefox instance.

In order to fix the problem, try disabling the scanning as follows:

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page. A list of settings should appear
  3. Filter the list by typing in the search bar at the top. Type in scanWhenDone. You should now find the "browser.download.scanWhenDone" preference.
  4. Double-click on that preference to set the value to false.
  5. Next, try to download something and see if it still hangs.

Please reply and tell us whether this helped you!

Sometimes it would hang in the middle of the download. Thanks for the reply, but there really isn't a point in me seeing if that solves the problem, because now I have to go to the default location for the installed files. FF doesn't even show the files or allow me to open/save them from FF. It isn't like how the old download manager was.

did you follow the instructions in my first post, that brings back the window based download manager before firefox 20.

Yes. But when I did that and I downloaded something, the file doesn't show as downloading. I only see a green progress bar on the FF tasbar icon. When it finishes, there is no where to launch the program or open it. I have to go to my desktop (my default location for downloaded files) and run it there.

In FireFox 21 and 22 it added the arrow at the to right that flashes green when a download is complete. By clicking this you get Firefox's download box with the most recent downloads in it. You can also right click next to an open tab in FireFox and choose Menu bar. Now click the tools button and you will find the downloads there as well.
