Green download arrow in Firefox – how to get rid of it?
Well, it could well be me, but I could not get the download window, just the irritating arrow.
I reverted version back to 18 as I download a lot of small files and its already driving me nuts with the green flashing. Thanks for an answer by the way, appreciated.
If control J works on v20 let me know as I have reverted to the previous version of Firefox for now.Posted 4 years ago
if you left click on the toolbar button it shows recent downloads and then the “show all downloads” option opens the old-type box
what’s ugly coogles ? I hadn’t noticed many changes but then I’ll never make a copper

This article describes what information is displayed, how to access your downloads, manage your files, revert to the old downloads window, and set downloading options.
Thanks scaredypants. If I remove the toolbar green arrow button (see no other way of disabling it yet) how can I get the show all downloads to display still? Or will it keep flashing the green arrow regardless of removing it from the tool bar?
I got so annoyed I reverted to prev version so cant test it now.
Wish it just flashed in the toolbar or something instead of intruding right into the page.Posted 4 years ago
Starting in Firefox 20, downloads are displayed in a pop-up panel attached to an icon on the navigation toolbar. For details, see the following article.
If you’d like to disable this feature in favor of the old Downloads window, perform the following steps.
Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.Posted 4 years ago
Press the big button to bypass the warning.
In the search box, paste browser.download.useToolkitUI
In the search results, double-click browser.download.useToolkitUI to set its value to true.

Sorry Cougar, did not mean to sound ungrateful. Its not been a good day for me so bit short tempered with the new upgrade. When I started doing the internet search and seeing the hoops to jump through just to get rid of a poor design element it was a bit the final straw to the day really.
Appreciated you helping. Maybe I will feel more up to playing with the program later in the week.Posted 4 years ago
Just upgraded Firefox from 18 to 20. Now when I download, there is an annoying large green arrow that intrudes onto the viewing screen instead of the download box sitting quietly at the bottom.
I have removed the green arrow from the menu in irritation but then cannot see how downloads are doing – is it possible to get the download box back or some other method that does not employ the annoying green arrow?
ThanksPosted 4 years ago
