Hi,

Thanks for this awesome extension, it's quite an improvement over the old Download Statusbar (which I loved).

I just have one small request. When the Downloads Library opens in a separate window, it has a default width and height. It would be great if I could resize it and have it remember that size. It's a feature I have come to expect of most applications.

EDIT: Apparently, that can be done using the persist attribute of window.

One other minor thing. There are some styles for the tree/list in the Downloads Library that have been overridden (#s3downbar_tree treechildren CSS rules). Having a different background colour for certain states is fine, but you should not change the highlight and selection colours. Leave those styles to the Operating System or the user's browser theme. It looks ugly on Win 7 having a grey highlight.

This image shows one item selected and another item hovered over:

Compare this with Windows Explorer:

All you have to do to fix this is remove your custom styles for the following CSS rules:
Code: Select all
#s3downbar_tree treechildren::-moz-tree-row(hover)
#s3downbar_tree treechildren::-moz-tree-row(selected)
#s3downbar_tree treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(selected)

Hi,
what about the new webextensions framework based on chrome extension api?
I read that by end of 2017 the current extension api will be deprecated by mozilla!
So you will have to port this extension to the new api, or it will stop working! :-(

Hi,
so are you saying that at the moment the "panel" is NOT available for web extensions?

http://arewewebextensionsyet.com/
devtools.panels - status: not yet

Chrome docs:
chrome.devtools.panels
Description: Use the chrome.devtools.panels API to integrate your extension into Developer Tools window UI: create your own panels, access existing panels, and add sidebars.
https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/devtools_panels


but this panel for devtools...
I hope Mozilla will make it possible to create a panel that would in any part of the browser, as in the current xul-version

Hi,
looking for webextension status in firefox I have found this bug about supporting noscript as a web extension:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1214733
I suggest you to submit a similar bug about supporting your extension, and then ask your users to vote the bug :-)
maybe it will help!

Glad to see your excellent extension is now Pale Moon compatible. Just wanted to ask if it's possible to configure what happens when double-clicking the download in the Statusbar. Seems there's no way to open the containing folder for example with a double-click, instead of opening the file. If not possible, hope you can consider adding this option in the future - thanks.

Thanks, it's a nice workaround although it only works if the file has completed downloading. If not, it acts as a double-click (pause/resume).

Have you considered my request for persisting window attributes? It's a minor improvement but should hopefully be quick and easy to do.
thanks.
