Tweak Your Firefox Download Manager

Change the Firefox Download Manager

Want to tweak the way the download manager from within Firefox works?  You can now tweak the way downloads are handled in a number different ways with the Download Manager Tweak add-on for Firefox.

The main thing you might notice, right off the bat, is the ability to changes download manager’s appearance and allow the download manager to be opened in a window, tab, or sidebar.

A few more options available to you are:

  • The ability to always ask where to save a file or always save files to one default location
  • Open the download manager after a delay of X milliseconds
  • Show or hide the toolbar on the bottom of the window
  • Show or hide the infobar, attached to the folder
  • Disable or enable the download manager theme changes
  • and much more!

This is an add-on for Firefox I could seriously see adding to my default add-ons list I put on every personal Firefox install I do, it is that cool.  The Download Manager Tweak extension is free to download, so give it a shot – and let me know how much you enjoy it.
