changed: the name of the add-on
New name fully reveals its essence: Download Manager (S3)
Old name: S3.Download Statusbar



This is a new life in Firefox 26+ for old well-known addon Download Statusbar
Original Download Statusbar add-on for Mozilla Firefox is abandoned October 28, 2011:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/download-statusbar/

Does it mean its death? Of course not! It has been reborn! I brought it back to life!
Now it is called S3.Download Statusbar and works with all Firefox versions 26+

New Features: Replace Downloads Library page.
Now you have full control of your downloads history!


https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/

Completely rewritten code to be compatible with the latest versions of firefox, but visual interface unchanged for use as a familiar old Download Statusbar

Thanks for taking the time out to update and improve the add-on.

I'm currently using the other Download SB and alternating between both to see certain benefits of either extensions, hopefully everyone can learn from one another so we never depend on one add-on that stops being updated.

Thanks for your work... On version 1.16 after the update, upon restart and when choosing the bar from the customize context menu, the Download bar appears at the top of the open window. The down arrow button at the far right does move it to the bottom. I would change the default position to the bottom position, after all that is where the status bar should be.. :?

hmm... you choose context menu for customize toolbar buttons, tollbar panels, etc...?
"Download bar appears at the top of the open window" - this normal work
after click "Ok" in menu - download bar returned to their place

I am currently on Aurora 28 and something may have changed in the Aurora theme. I'll test on Beta and Release later. Must leave now.

Execute command when all downloads are completed is a nice feature, but it's not a good idea shutdown computer when FF is open, Close browser and Shutdown would be better.

This addon since the update has been causing Firefox to crash.

I don't know if this is due to the update to FF 27 or the update to S3 1.16 but there is a conflict here somewhere.
