Firefox tip - how to turn off the Downloads Complete popup

Figure 1: about:config
I was getting real tired of the pop-ups in Firefox telling me that the file download just completed. To turn these off just us the about:config page as shown in figure 1 to set the highlighted variable in figure 1 to false. You can toggle this setting by just clicking on the line.

The less interruptions, the less context switching, the easier it is to concentrate on the code you are working on! ;-)
