Global notifications for completed downloads
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 StumbleUpon/1.999 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 StumbleUpon/1.999 When a download is completed on the Macintosh, Firefox should post a Growl notification. Firefox Mac OS X does not have the download completion notifications that Firefox for Windows does. If you register the notifications, then the UI for turning it on and off and customizing it is in Growl. You might be cautious about implementing platform-specific features, but implementing the notifications in AppleScript (for example) looks simple to an outsider, and they could go a long way towards making Mac users feel special. - Growl (http://growl.info/) (http://www.drunkenblog.com/drunkenblog-archives/000341.html) - Growl is licensed under a BSD-style license (http://growl.info/documentation/Growl-Main-License.txt). - Documentation (http://growl.info/documentation/) - Implementing Growl in Carbon applications (http://growl.info/documentation/implementing-growl.php?lang=carbon) - Self-proclaimed hack that does this (http://www.mrchucho.net/index.php/archives/2004/12/27/firefox-and-growl/) Thank you. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know if we'd add core code to support a third-party OS-specific function. That seems a tad bloaty, not to mention I don't know if we can use AppleScript yet.
In case there was some confusion, Growl supports lots of languages besides AppleScript.
We're not going to mess with third party apps; any sort of dock notification is a better way to go.
This would not make Firefox bloated: 1) It can be implemented without any Firefox UI. 2) It's not slow.
Sorry to comment twice. I'm new to this tracker,heh. The reason why a dock notification is not enough is that dock notifications are quite annoying, whereas Growl notifications are very controllable by the user. Please try Growl with GrowlSafari, as it would be comparable to what the person in this ticket is requesting.

It is possible I think to implement Growl in Firefox by using an xpi extension that calls Growls through its terminal growlnotify plug-in. http://growl.info/documentation/growlnotify.php
fwiw, Growl's become a more and more prominent OS X add on, and there seem to be more applications for Mac that support it. Worth re-evaluating?

> This can't be checked in until the bug this depends on is checked in. I lied. After thinking about this I realized it will behave the same as if Growl wasn't installed with the other bug landing.
As per discussion with mconnor on irc.

Please note that whoever checks this in will also have to pull the winstripe file into the proper location in pinstripe: http://mxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/toolkit/themes/winstripe/mozapps/downloads/downloadIcon.png
