Guys, today Firefox has updated their Firefox browser, now finally version 102 has been released, where there are a number of improvements including the ability to hide download panels which will appear automatically when the download process starts.
“Tired of too many windows crowding your screen? You can now disable automatic opening of the download panel every time a new download starts. Read more.” Write Firefox in its release page.
Now, let’s focus on discussing just one of these new capabilities, because this is something that is quite interesting, especially for you Firefox users who want to focus on the main screen without being disturbed by download panels which appears automatically when the download process starts.
For example, you want to download something using Firefox, usually Firefox will immediately display a short download panel (via a popup) on the toolbar, just like in the following picture.
However, in version 102, you can hide it, so that when the download button is clicked, there will be no notification, except for the download indicator that appears to be running, as shown in the following image.
Of course, if you don’t like this change, you can adjust it by right-clicking on the download panels in the browser toolbar.
Well I myself quite like this new ability, and what do you think? comment below guys.
And if you’re curious, here is the changelog from Firefox 102:
- Tired of too many windows crowding your screen? You can now disable automatic opening of the download panel every time a new download starts.
- Firefox now mitigates query parameter tracking when navigating sites in ETP strict mode.
- Subtitles and captions for Picture-in-Picture (PiP) are now available at HBO Max, Funimation, Dailymotion, Tubi, Disney+ Hotstar, and SonyLIV. This allows you to view video in a small window pinned to a corner of the screen while navigating between apps or browsing content on the main screen.
- When using a screen reader on Windows, pressing enter to activate an element no longer fails or clicks the wrong element and/or another application window. For those blind or with very limited vision, this technology reads out loud what is on the screen, and users can adapt them to their needs (now, on our platform, without errors).
- Various security fixes.
- Improved security by moving audio decoding into a separate process with stricter sandboxing, thus improving process isolation.
- You can now filter style sheets in the Style Editor tab of our developer tools.
