Firefox 20 introduced a new Download Manager with their version 20 release. Like with any change, some people have complained about the change, and want to revert to the old behavior. I don't mind the new Download Manager, but the change does break my workflow.
Formerly, to check on my downloads, I would press
J, scan the list quickly, then hit
Esc to continue with my browsing. But, the new Download Manager opens in a full window, which does not close on
Esc. I have noticed that Firefox also has some sort of Download quick viewer, which opens when I select the Download toolbar item. This shows a quick dialog window, which will close when it loses focus or I press
Esc, and I actually prefer this for viewing my downloads.
So, do I have a keyboard shortcut to open this quick view? Or, can I re-map
J to open this view instead of the full Download Manager?
