Download finished. Forever.

One of the few trivial annoyances of the Firefox interface is a flag which pops up from the staus bar when a download has completed.  Thanks to Mozilla Links, I've finally disabled it.

In 'about:config', find the line 'browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete' and set it to 'false'. Simple as that.

When I get a moment, I'll try to do the same with Thunderbird: for some reason I find the similar 'mail arrived' flag disproportionately irritating. I'll discover whether I have new mail when I specifically choose to look for it, thanks; I don't want any immediate notification whatsoever.
