Hi Jasdeep0028, I don't think

browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete

is a current feature. Maybe from the old, old days before Firefox 29?

Currently, when a download is completed, Firefox may do a tiny bit of animation of the download arrow on the toolbar. You may not notice it, especially if you are using a different app at the time.

There is at least one add-on which can create a desktop notification (rectangle in the lower right corner of the screen) for a completed download, but I haven't tried it myself. For more information, see:

I don't recall seeing one for a long time. The current approach is to color/animate the arrow button on the toolbar.
