How many click the Download button to start a download?

It appears when you start a Download and stays in the toolbar when the download is finished until you quit Firefox.

They will be implementing a Downloads button in the Library panel, so users can see download history.

Remember, Nightly is a development version prone to unexpected changes and bugs.

In the event of Windows missing the Title bar Minimize/Maximize/Close buttons -- you can use the Windows Task bar and right click the window icon for the element and select close window.

STR: Create new Nightly profile, install latest uMatrix beta from AMO: ... sions/beta
Open new tab

ER: uMatrix icon on the navigation toolbar is visible
AR: uMatrix icon on the navigation toolbar disappeared

I guess that's Firefox bug because I reported this bug in uMatrix thread and Gorhill didn't fix it. If someone else reproduces this bug, I'll file a bug on bugzilla. Or you can file a bug if you wish.

Hmm... If they are adamant about it being hidden by default, could someone please make a bug to have it behind a preference in about:config?

Video acceleration seems broken to me in this build (very high cpu utilization, should be accelerated by the GPU instead)
AVC codec - YouTube, Vimeo

Broken for anyone else?

I've been having problems vor a while now with AVC on a Radeon R9 390. Intel gpu seems to be working better.

AMD doesn't have VP9 acceleration, which google will default to.
