Hi,

Since the yesterday installment of Firefox, the Download list popup every time I download a file. I tried to toggle about:config->browser.download.panel.shown->false but every time I download a file in toggle back to true & the list pop up

It's very annoying. Any suggestion please?

I have the same problem. I've tried changing browser.download.panel.shown to false but every time I download something it changes itself to true. I also tried changing browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel to false but browser.download.panel.shown still changes itself to true even then. Any solution?

ok. this is weird. so whenever I tried changing the about:config settings I got the download panel to show up again on the next download but since I changed browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel it only opened it once and every subsequent download didnt open it. so of course I thought it didnt work when the panel opened after I changed it. so if you have this issue, just change browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel to false and you'll get the panel one time but its gone again after that.
