Firefox download window does not offer a link to the download location

Summary: Firefox download window does not offer a link to the download location

Comments: 
Hello,

I use a web based product for IP management, and have to download
documents all the time. However, the Firefox download window does not
offer a link to the download location. Each time, one has to go through
a whole lot of steps of going through windows directory structure in
order to access the downloaded documents. 

Windows IE download box, offers a "open folder" button, that takes one
directly to were the files are downloaded.

Would like to suggest adding the "open foler" button to the Firefox
download window, which would be very useful.

Thanks,

Ardavan

Problems with any download link with FireFox 3.0 beta 4 when download location unavailable
Name: Brice Dardel Email: bdardelatplexscidotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Problems with any download link with FireFox 3.0 beta 4 when download location unavailable Comments: When the download location is invalid (for me it was on a drive letter that wasn't used anymore), FireFox will not error out, not prompt another location -- nothing will happen. It took me a while to understand that it was because it didn't have a properly saved Downloads location. Regards, Brice.

According to this webpage http://superuser.com/questions/18285/prevent-windows-7-pc-from-sleeping-while-a-download-is-in-progress it is the duty of the downloading program to reset the system idle timer by calling SetThreadExecutionState with ES_SYSTEM_REQUIRED.

Firefox Download Window
I'm running Firefox 0.9.3. Started a download where the sever apparently did not tell Firefox what the total file size was. To begin with the 'Downloads' window showed 'xx of 0 K' transferred, the transfer rate, and ???? as the target size. But after a while it began showing ONLY the transfer rate, and ???? as the fiile size. I consider this a bug - I would like to keep on seeing the number of bytes so far transferred. mikus In message <OfZLBlW2vDRd092yn@daina.bga.com> - mikus@bga.com (Mikus Grinbergs) writes: :> :>I'm running Firefox 0.9...
