8.4. Using the Download Manager

With the help of the download manager, keep track of your current and past downloads. To open the download manager, click Tools+Downloads. Firefox opens a window with your downloads. While downloading a file, see a progress bar and the current file. If necessary, pause a download and resume it later. To open a downloaded file, click Open. With Remove, remove it from the list. If you need information about the file, right-click the filename and choose Properties.

If you need further control of the download manager, open the configuration window from Edit+Preferences and go to the Downloads tab. Here, determine the download folder, how the manager behaves, and some configuration of file types.
