There is no clear indication for failed downloads please change some other color to know which one is broken or it needs to re-download also there is no notification for completed download

The other browser have a clear notification against this type of error

In many cases, the program thinks the download is done when it is not.

Why it was thinking like that is that knows how much the size is other browser indicates red error massage to know but we need because if you clear the history it destroys the all links including not completed one so we can't download it back or we are missing so please include clear message thats helps more

This is what I do, I place all downloads in one directory. Later, I sort them out. I also place a web link for that file in the same folder. If something goes wrong, I still have the link the file came from to try again.

You know some links not works because it was restricted with expire within time that means the YouTube links download links only works 24 hours if i face like this what can i do some website have a lot of restriction you can't download the file only once its was broken or failed to download

You can consider to give these downloads a background color.


Add this code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line for the Downloads Manager (Library).


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

 #downloadsRichListBox richlistitem.download:not([state="1"]) {
  box-shadow: inset 0pt 0pt 120px rgba(255, 153, 153, 0.6);
}

Add this code to the userContent.css file for the about:downloads page.


@-moz-document url(about:downloads){
 #downloadsRichListBox richlistitem.download:not([state="1"]) {
  box-shadow: inset 0pt 0pt 120px rgba(255, 153, 153, 0.6);
 }
}

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

Hello sir cor-el i can't find the userChrome.css in the profile folder i am currently in beta channel 39

You need to create the chrome folder (lowercase) in the <xxxxxxxx>.default profile folder if this folder doesn't exist.

  • Use a plain text editor like Notepad to create a (new) userChrome.css file in the chrome folder (file name is case sensitive)
  • Paste the code in the userChrome.css file in the editor window
  • Make sure that the userChrome.css file starts with the default @namespace line
  • Make sure that you select "All files" and not "Text files" when you save the file via "Save file as" in the text editor as userChrome.css.
    Otherwise Windows may add a hidden .txt file extension and you end up with a not working userChrome.css.txt file

I got this warning whenever i close firefox

The second screenshot shows a download that is still in progress. My code is supposed to work with downloads that have finished and do not show the progression bar.

I'm not sure about the problem in your last post about closing Firefox.

Do you get this frequently or can you reproduce it with visiting specific web pages?

Use "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox; Linux: Firefox/File > Quit) to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.

still i am face bad download management in firefox the download was brokened and it was really bad to click again and again to the retry button

Sorry that Firefox doesn't have the feature/s you want. Time to look for an extension that adds what you want to Firefox.

Addon Search for "download" 1,617 returns = something there should have the features that you are looking for

Or start your own search at AMO and see if your search terms can provide a more pinpointed search.

ok why the failed downloads are removed when we click clear history or clear download. it must be there until user knows are put other menu link to clearup

more options

I guess you were unable to find a suitable add-on with the features you want.

Then don't use Clear Downloads to clear the entire list. Remove each individual download record by using the Remove From History contextual menu item.

whether i am gonna die hmm :(

it was not a good idea your are just simply adding two option only is that really a big problem hmm

the option menus are remove completed downloads only and other one is grouping failed and finished downloads that's all and adding some nice color the recent downloading color is too bad
