    With options:

    • open file
    • open containing folder


  • I agree something urgent needs doing about the downloading status icon.

    Currently when a download is done the sidebar is opened which covers a fair proportion of the screen It remains open after the download is completed.

    Please consider moving the download status icon to the menubar, or to the status bar at the bottom of the screen. It would then be possible to monitor a download while continuing to surf. The next download performed that session could the replace the original status icon.

    This would eliminate the need to open the sidebar at all/

    Thanks



  • Yes, it is a possibility. But I was thinking of something extended to the other panels. The email panel for example. An icon in the address bar, near the download icon, warns of an incoming email. In this way I can surf at full screen without lateral bar.
    The address bar occupy the 80% of the row. And I don't think it is of interest to see all of an address …
    Another thing, for me, is to remove the search area to the far right and directly use the address bar to do a search.

    You know you can do that in settings now, right?



  • Ops. Found! Thanks

    I know this is not exactly the request being made, but it will surely help.
    This extension by Christoph142 (same dev from modern scroll) shows OS notifications when downloads fail or are completed. Like old Opera did.
