The firefox “Downloads” pop up certainly lacked chrome’s ease, but this little add on will make your  downloads easier and simpler.


  1. Opens tabs automatically on start of a download.

  2. You have option to choose when a tab opens, only when chosen from menu (when opened from tools menu), automatically when download starts (if a Downloads tab isn’t already open plus previous, default) or anytime when a download starts.
  3. Option to let the tab remain open (default), close automatically after download finishes, active window(tab only in active window) or all windows (that have downloads tab).

Works with Firefox 2.0 – 4.2a1pre
