Mozilla Firefox - Misc - View More Details on Downloaded Files

SUMMARY: FirefoxDownloadsView shows additional details about the most recent files downloaded from the Firefox web browser.

FirefoxDownloadsView is a Windows utility from NirSoft that displays additional information about the latest files downloaded via Mozilla Firefox. Details include (when available) each filename, original file and referrer URLs, full path to the download, MIME type, downloaded and total bytes, start / end / duration times, and an estimate of the average download speed (note that the latter may be influenced by hard drive speed, compression, and by your antivirus software scanning downloads).

As with other NirSoft tools, details can be saved to text, CSV, XML, or HTML files, or HTML reports may be generated from the results. Other features include right-click shortcuts to open the selected URL or filename and a "Find" feature in case you are wading through hundreds or more downloads. The software can be run via a batch file, for example to generate automated HTML reports.

Using FirefoxDownloadsView to display details for files downloaded from Firefox

Windows 2000, Windows XP, and higher are supported. Firefox 3.x and 4.x are supported. Translations are available in other languages including French, German, and Russian. More information and download links are available at the following site:
