How to Remove the Download Bar in Firefox




Use an extension




Similar to Chrome, you can also use an extension to remove the download bar in Firefox. There are fewer extensions available for Firefox than for Chrome, but here are some of them:


  • Download Manager (S3): This extension replaces the download bar with a customizable panel that shows your downloads and their status.



  • Download Status Bar: This extension adds a status bar at the bottom of your window that shows your downloads and allows you to manage them.



  • Download Manager Tweak: This extension enhances the built-in download manager of Firefox and allows you to open it in a separate window, tab, or sidebar.



To use any of these extensions, you need to install them from the Firefox Add-ons site and enable them in your browser settings. You can also enable them in Private Browsing mode if you want.


Change the browser settings




If you don't want to use an extension, you can also change the browser settings to remove the download bar in Firefox. You need to modify a preference called browser.download.panel.shown in the about:config page. This preference controls whether the download panel is shown when a download starts or completes.


To change this preference, you need to follow these steps:


  • Open a new tab and type about:config in your address bar.



  • Click on \"Accept the Risk and Continue\" if you see a warning message.



  • Search for browser.download.panel.shown in the search box.



  • Double-click on the preference to toggle its value from \"true\" to \"false\".



  • Restart your browser for the changes to take effect.



Note that this will also disable the download button and the download indicator in your toolbar. You can still access your downloads by clicking on the menu button and selecting \"Downloads\" or by pressing Ctrl+J.


How to Remove the Download Bar in Edge




Use an extension




Edge is based on the same engine as Chrome, so you can use some of the same extensions to remove the download bar in Edge. However, not all extensions are compatible with Edge, so you need to check their compatibility before installing them. Here are some of the extensions that work with Edge:


  • Always Clear Downloads in Edge: This extension is similar to the one for Chrome, but it works with Edge. It clears your downloads automatically after a specified time and hides the download bar.



  • AutoHideDownloadsBar for Edge: This extension is also similar to the one for Chrome, but it works with Edge. It hides the download bar after a few seconds or when you click on it.



  • Close download bar for Edge: This extension is also similar to the one for Chrome, but it works with Edge. It adds a button to close the download bar manually.



To use any of these extensions, you need to install them from the Microsoft Edge Add-ons site and enable them in your browser settings. You can also enable them in InPrivate mode if you want.


Clear the download history




If you don't want to use an extension, you can also clear the download history to remove the download bar in Edge. This will delete all your previous downloads and hide the download bar until you start a new download. However, this will not prevent the download bar from appearing again in the future.


To clear the download history, you need to follow these steps:


  • Click on the menu button (three dots) in the top right corner of your browser window.



  • Select \"Downloads\" from the menu.



  • Click on \"Clear all\" at the top of the downloads list.



  • Confirm your action by clicking on \"Clear\" in the pop-up window.

  • Download Bar Lite for Safari: This extension hides the download bar by default and shows it only when you hover over it with your mouse cursor.

Change the view options




If you don't want to use an extension, you can also change the view options for downloads in Safari. You can choose to show or hide the download bar, or to show it as a button or an icon in your toolbar. You can also change the location and sorting of your downloads.


To change the view options, you need to follow these steps:


  • Click on the menu button (Safari) in the top left corner of your browser window.



  • Select \"Preferences\" from the menu.



  • Click on the \"General\" tab in the preferences window.



  • Find the section called \"Downloads\" and click on the drop-down menu next to \"Show Downloads\".



  • Select one of the options: \"In Downloads Bar\", \"In Toolbar\", \"In Menu Bar\", or \"Never\".



  • If you choose \"In Toolbar\" or \"In Menu Bar\", you can also click on the \"Customize Toolbar\" button to drag and drop the download button or icon to your desired position.



  • You can also change the download location and sorting by clicking on the \"Change Location\" and \"Sort By\" buttons respectively.
