How do I disable the annoying yellow color of applications that needs attention in Windows 7. An example would be the Firefox download, every time I download, the icon on the Taskbar always blinks with the yellow color until I click it.
For Firefox specifically it would probably suffice to get rid of the Downloads window. This Add-on is actually pretty nice, imho.

However, setting a new value there only takes effect after re-logon. A value of 0 means “blink forever”. So the lowest one you can probably reasonably use is 1.
