Description

3 years ago
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1152736 +++

We currently 40.0a1 (2015-04-07) have the following layout for downloaded items:

FileName
Size
DateTime

I agree with Richard's bug 1087233, comment 4, too many lines of information per download item is too many lines. Looks tidy if you have two or three, but very distracting when there are ten plus and all the less relevant information lines up top-level. Also wasting vertical space which is already very generously used.

Can we please make it like FF:

FileName
Size -- Source/Sender -- DateTime

Including sender information is certainly helpful to identify files.
Do it here if it's simple; otherwise in another bug.

Consistency with FF also helps our users to recognize such information.
