couldn't find a bug on this, but dup as needed.

is there some way that we could automatically close the Downloads window, after
a download has completed?

Yes, please. This, plus the fact that there's no preference right now to get the
download window to "clean up after itself" once a download is completed, makes
downloading w/ Camino rather unwieldy.

automatically closing the window makes only sense, when the download is openend
automatically.

A little bit strange, but useful would be an option which:

a) removes items automatically if they are downloaded completely AND
[("automatically open" is ON) OR (the item is openend or shown)]
b) closes the window when now downloads are shown.

A pref option to auto-close the dl manager after successful download would be a
useful and time saving addition.  Firebird has similar options, surely Camino
could have the same?

so glad I spent ages trolling through all the download manager bugs to see this
was already requested. I'm voting for this bug now!

I'll do a patch for this for 0.9. I don't want to do it until we do the major
prefs rewrite for 0.9.

Simply adding:

user_pref("browser.download.progressDnldDialog.keepAlive", false);

to the user.js does not work. There will have to be some tinkering around in the
code to get Camino to recognize this preference.

correct - our dl manager doesn't know anything about that pref at the moment.
