Yeah... No fan of that notification either because, like I said, I don't use FF's DL manager. Looks like I'll be modifying this command in about:config
Code:
browser.download.useToolkitUI
Change value to TRUE
Thanks for that info Lebon14.

Is it just me or the tab for download manager seems only to work in private browsing and not normal one (Instead just shows teh catalog window)...

I'll also likely turn off the new download manager and go back to the old one whenever I get around to updating to Firefox v2308 (which it'll probably be at when I get around to updating) because I find the current one perfect for my needs.
You may when you catch a trojan. There have been numerous security fixes since Fx 12.

It takes 2 clicks to open it with the toolbar button and it makes managing things more difficult (i.e. clearing items).

Hi All,
There are some interesting references being made.
Could someone help me out by explaining about the different offshoots of FF that are being mentioned.
It would be a great help to me if the pro's and con's of each could be explored.
Many Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up.
It seems to be very good reading the description but do you know of any downsides at all which should be considered?
Thanks again.

One more thing, Pale Moon is NOT on the insane update cycle that FF is on.

My two cents.
Hi Sarris,
I am exploring the FF offshoots and wonder what exactly the problem was that you found with Ice dragon.
Many Thanks.

i havent found any problems with ice dragon ,it does what i need it to ,its fast and all my add ons work flawlessly.
im not sure what sarris had problems with.
also ff 20 is working fine too ,now.
i have ff 20 as the default browser as my partner uses it and it has trusteer rapport which protects the sites we use for making payments and banking stuff.
i quite often open up ice dragon when im just browsing.

Update

Some of my FF profiles (I've got 7) must have problems.

The clear downloads problem I mentioned only happens in one or two of them.
The rest behave the same as with the new or the old Downloads Manager.
