Your Downloads panel and Library keep track of files you download while using Firefox. This article explains how to access and manage the files you download in Firefox and how to configure your download settings.

How do I access my downloads?

You can access downloads from your current browsing session by clicking on the Downloads button (the down arrow on your toolbar).

  • The arrow will appear blue Fx91DownloadsButton-blue to let you know there are unviewed downloaded files.
  • During a download, the Downloads button becomes an icon Fx91DownloadProgress that gradually fills with color to show your download's progress. You can click on the download item, even before it's finished downloading; Firefox will open the file immediately once it is available.

Click on the Downloads button to open the Downloads panel.

Download protection

Before beginning a download, Firefox will attempt to protect you from potentially malicious or unsafe downloads and will block downloads from insecure connections. To learn more, see the Mozilla Security blog posts Firefox 93 protects against Insecure Downloads, Enhancing Download Protection in Firefox and Improving Malware Detection in Firefox. If something is suspected, the download will not begin, but rather the Downloads panel will display a warning message:

Fx91UnsafeDownloads

Potentially malicious downloads are detected using Google Safe Browsing Service. The file name will be displayed along with the warning message,

  • This file contains a virus or malware.

Other files covered under download protection may be potentially unwanted downloads (explained in the Google Policy) that may make unexpected changes to your computer. Or, a download may not be malicious or unwanted, but simply not commonly downloaded. The file name will be displayed with one of these warning messages:

  • This file may harm your computer.
  • This file is not commonly downloaded.

Download protection is enabled by default in Firefox. See the article How does built-in Phishing and Malware Protection work? for more information.

How do I handle unsafe downloads?

When you see a malicious file or other types of potentially unsafe files in the Downloads panel, click on the right-facing arrow to choose what to do with the file. You will be given more information about the type of unsafe file and the option to allow the download or remove it:
