How to avoid Firefox download manager pop-ups

Firefox has always been an excellent alternative to the Internet Explorer, infact more and more internet users, bloggers are using firefox because its actually faster than IE, there are number of free addons available which could make life simpler.. (more reasons why Firefox is better than IE).. infact if you haven't tried firefox do check out the latest version here.
But the one thing that always bugs me is although Firefox has a very efficient pop up blocker, every time you used its download manager (which is really good) a new mini download window pops up.. and you can not close it untill the download is complete.

Lately i had been looking for a solution and then I came across this new firefox addon which solved my problem. Its called the Download Statusbar, which is a browser extension that allows you to keep track of ongoing and completed downloads in a hide-away statusbar.

It auto-hides when not in use, single-click pause and resume, Resume all, Cancel all, and Remove all finished - available from the context menu of the bar itself are some of its features.

This addon really rocks. Try it out here.
