New open folder button

Unread postby Utnapishtim » Wed, 12 Sep 2018, 01:34

I've noticed that Firefox and Waterfox have a new, bigger button to open folder in the Downloads window & drop down menu. It's a big square, taking up the whole end of the downloads list entry, as opposed to the small circle with the folder icon we have in PM right now.

I think this would be a useful change, it might look a little ugly, but I tend to miss Pale Moon's small open folder button pretty often, and I rarely want to outright open the file after I download it, so I usually resort to right-clicking the entry.

Good for them. It is ugly, and a big huge button? Why do we need that.. In any event, I always use the context menu.

Besides it being a stupid change that doesn't in any way match the rest of the UI controls.. People would bitch if we changed this. In this case, I would be one of them.

Shame, the FF way is indeed ugly, but the small button is really just eye candy, I can never hit it. I always have to use right click > open folder :( I'd say this is one of the few good changes to come out of the Mozilla bloat factory
