We should have a way of measuring how often setting a download to launch is toggled from the downloads panel.

Romain, should we only record when a user clicks an in-progress download for the purposes of opening the file when it's finished? It's possible to click a download again to cancel opening a file, which I'm not sure is helpful.

Flags: needinfo?(rtestard)

It's also possible that user makes many clicks on the same download (maybe to make sure it will open in the end).

Is this something new? I cannot make this happen on my machine (Win10)
I any case I don't intend to analyze users cancelling downloads so fine with me if not captured.

One question though is: does payload.processes.parent.scalars.downloads_file_opened also increment when users open downloaded files this way?

You'll have to enable "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel" to try it out.

This bug will also include counting files opened this way.
