As all Firefox users know, when you you download a file a separate download window opens.  That’s fine, but it’s not exactly optimum because if you click to another tab or on a link then that downloads window gets buried behind the browser.  It would be much better if you could make your download a tab of it own.  Fortunately, thanks to Firefox’s extensive add-ons market, someone has created an extension to do just that.

Downloads in Tab is an add-on that automatically moves your download window to a tab of it’s own.  The extension actually even gives you the option to show the old window.  You can also choose to open the tab when a download starts, close it when it ends, and move the tab to first.

The Downloads to Tabs extension solves a big need in Firefox for my house.  Having the downloads window hidden away has been a real hassle for us and this is a great fix with a few simple, useful options.
