Firefox: Is there a tweak or addon that I can install to show my downloads in a tab instead of the default window? I love my taskbar real estate, so this would save space...

Windows 7, either Firefox 3.6 or 4.

I believe the Downloads in Tab addon will do exactly that.

Since you're using FireFox 3.6 you may need to follow these instructions (from the download page)...

  • Right click the install link and chose save link as
  • Open the resulting .xpi-file with an archive manager
  • Edit install.rdf
  • Change line: 3.5.* to 3.6.* -Save the file and update the archive(the .xpi-file) -In firefox choose File->Open and select the your updated .xpi-file.
