See the Progress

See the Progress

If you use Firefox as your main Web browser, you’re probably often downloading stuff on there too, right? Well, Firefox makes it very easy for you to see the progress status of all your downloads.

Once you start downloading something, you can do a quick click on the “Display the progress of ongoing downloads” icon and it will bring up a box that lists all of the downloads that are in progress.

It even has a list of your old downloads as well (unless you already deleted them). If you don’t want the older downloads to be on there, you can click on the Clean Up icon and they will all be gone.

Once your new download is done, it will pop up and ask you if you want to Open it or if you’d like, you can still back up and Remove it. It’s just a nifty little feature that Firefox offers so you can keep even better track of all your downloads.
