Why doesn’t the download window in Firefox open?

Sledgend May 31, 2011

For some reason, whenever I reopen Firefox its settings have been changed, so that no downloads window or tab opens when I download a file, regardless of what I had set it to do previously.
Why is this?

    I am using the default firefox downloader. I change the settings, but the next time I open Firefox they have changed back to not showing any download window/tab when a download starts, so I have to open it manually.

    Hello check your settings for downloads

    -- Click on Tools
    -- click on options
    -- on the general tab under the downloads heading make sure that the option show the downloads window when downloading a file is checkmarked.
    -- click on ok

    You can also use ctrl+j to show the downloads windows.  Are you using the default firefox downloader or an extension?
