Annoying Download Window

Post by Candy » Mon Dec 28, 2009 3:36 pm

Is there any way of turning off Orca's Download Window (manager or whatever it's called)? It is so annoying (not to mention the added keystrokes it forces me to use.).

Open Orca and type about:config in the address bar
Accept the warning about being careful
Type browser.download.manager in the filters box
Double click the following rows to toggle the value - make sure the value changes to "false"
browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting
browser.download.manager.useWindow (depreciated - no longer required)
browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone (optional - prevents virus scan of file)

Ok. One problem. browser.download.manager.useWindow is not in the list. Here is the list...

browser.download.manager.addToRecentDocs; true
browser.download.manager.alertOnEXEOpen; true
browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone; false
browser.download.manager.flashCount; 2
browser.download.manager.focusWhenStarting; false
browser.download.manager.quitBehavior; 0
browser.download.manager.resumeOnWakeDelay; 10000
browser.download.manager.retention; 2
browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone; false
browser.download.manager.showAlertInterval; 2000
browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete; true
browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting; false

Please ignore browser.download.manager.useWindow - this is effectively the same as setting browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting and was removed in an earlier version of the Gecko engine. You can find out more information by searching the web for about:config settings.

I would do two things:
- set closeWhenDone to true and showAlertOnComplete to false
- stop using big purple fonts for your posts

Ok. I changed what you suggested and I'll not use the purple anymore on this forum. Sorry about that. And thanks for your help.
