download box

When downloading a video, the download box appears with the name of the video. In firefox there is an option to automatically clear the box and close it after the download is complete. There doesn't seem to be such an option in Orca, i.e. the closings have to be done manually. I suggest that it be added.

Open Orca and type about:config in the address bar
Accept the warning about being careful
Type browser.download.manager in the filters box at the top

Double click the following row to toggle the value - make sure the value changes to false
browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting

Double click the following row to toggle the value - make sure the value changes to true
browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone

Double click the following row and set the value to 0

I implemented your suggestions and they worked. However I undid the following:
------------------------------------------------------
Double click the following row to toggle the value - make sure the value changes to false
browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting
------------------------------------------------------
The reason being is that I do want to see the download box during the download so I can see what is happening, but I want it to close as soon as it is finished.
