FF v0.9 - progress meter while dl?

    Both IE and Netscape have some sort of progress meter popup box that
    shows you the progress of something dl. I miss that something awful
    in FF because it's disconcerting as I'm wondering if something is dl
    or how along in the process it is.

    Is there something we can switch on in FF to do this? I currently
    have v0.9 but apparently there's a security flaw in 0.9 so I'm
    switching over 0.9.1 which I dl last night.

    Are you talking about the Download Manager window? Tools >> Options >>
    Downloads >> Download Manager?

    Another neat option is the "Download Statusbar" extension, visualizes your
    downloads in a less obtrusive way:

    I dl and installed this one. I figured out how to configure this
    extension and now it works just great!

    Thanks for the tip.
