(https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar) This bug is to ask Mozilla to add necessary WE API to support this specific use case. Thanks.
Are you the add-on author? We'd need some specific API requests to be able to proceed with this and looking at that add-on there are parts of that add-on that are not possible to do in WebExtensions.

Summary: WebExtension API to support s3 download status bar → Allow s3 download status bar to be ported
no, I'm not the author, but still I'd like to help. I hope that at least the "core" of the addon can be supported: showing the downloads in a bar at the bottom of the screen (I really like the approach, since I can see all downloads progress while at the same time continuing browsing). I already asked the author about the porting, and he was hoping to use the devtools panels api to create the download bar. is it possible? thanks.
Hey, I'm author. when it will be possible to create a custom bottom panel (as is statusbar, download bar, etc) in WebExtensions?
There is no plan to be able to create a custom bottom panel at this time.
