In the new version, the Downloads panel automatically opens whenever I save/download a file.

The problem... it STAYS open.

How can I turn it off? I already know where and how to check on my downloaded files. I do not need to see the downloads panel pop up every time I save a file. And I definitely do not need or want it to stay open, causing yet another need for a mouse click to make it go away.

Note that this is controlled by this pref.

WARNING: modifying prefs directly via the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior, and there is no guarantee that this will keep working in future Firefox releases.

unfortunately this setting seems to reset automatically to "true" after a new download...works as designed?
