I would recommend not removing show as a number of people (myself included)
always use this command upon downloading a file as they do not wish to launch
the file straight away. Adding a launch button is bug 227435 . Is this a dupe of

I've added bug 227502 as a dependency, because the in order to get the "Open
Containing Folder" context menu option working in a user-friendly fashion, we
should fix bug 227502 on Linux/Macintosh.

Assuming that Show == Open Containing Folder in terms of function, the Open
Containing Folder option will suffer the same problem unless the other bug is fixed.

If you have selected "Show download manager when download begins" and not
selected "Close the download manager when all downloads complete" than besides
file name there are two links "Show" and "Remove". But if you right-click than
you get "Open" or double-click than default is open.

Show is equivalent to Open Containing folder.
Open is equivalent to launch program.

I had wanted Open functionality and found that it is already present.

IMO, the workaround to 'open containing folder' should have been in a readme
somewhere obviously visible.  It's an irritating change in functionality to
people who haven't read this bug report.
