Feature Request: Play sound when download completes
Hi guys. Summary: This is a long standing request for a simple feature that was present in various add-ons and that has dissapeared. You can see here since when it has been asked for: https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/667970 Implementation: -In the Options menu, General tab, Downloads section, a simple tick can be put (unticked by default) that says: *Play sound when a dowload completes*. A default sound to be added by you guys would be nice, otherwise a system sound would work good as well, like the *Default Beep (or bip)* or the *Asterisk* one (windows default system sounds). -Options should be added down the road to exclude certain files from sounding the alarm when downloading (.jpg .gif .mp3 .txt ; etcetera.) -Customization of sounds. The good, the bad and the ugly: -Good: Usability ramps up, the user gets more control over their bandwidth, time to work or do different activities, and in general, it improves the firefox experience, which is not good, IT'S GREAT! -Bad: Several options would have to be added and bughunted, like the "search for file" options to customize the sound as well as the exclusion of certain files that have little weith and are generally downloaded in quick succession: .jpg .gif .mp3 .txt etcetera. -Ugly: Support, development time and localization. So hey, there you have it. Discuss.! Cheers from a Venezuela long standing fan of Firefox: -Edgar
