Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008010904 Minefield/3.0b3pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008010904 Minefield/3.0b3pre

Sometimes, when downloading a file with a non-descript name the possibility to add a tag or comment for it would be good. Especially when downloading compressed archives with password protection.

I don't know exactly what changes will come when Places will be fully implemented, but I haven't seen this feature mentioned.

Thanks for considering my request.

Sincerely,
Pas

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Now all the information that can be gathered for a download is the time and the page where it is originated.

Expected Results:  
When the download dialog pops up, a field for comments, az input line for tags/keywords/labels could be presented for the user. Then these could be seen in the download window when clicking on the actual item. And optionally the tags/keywords could be searched, like bookmarks.

Thanks. That's a slightly different problem, but solvin one of these will provide solution for all of them, so thanks again for pointing me to those bugs.

Ever confirmed: true
This doesn't seem to be useful beyond a niche set of use cases, which makes it a bad fit for the core application.  Would be an interesting application, for sure.
