Just installed todays nightly an realized that there now are (for me superfluous and even using up space when folded in) menu bar and a search field but the old buttons are missing.
I'd very much like to get back those buttons for open, open containing folder as I use them very often and they're more convenient than the context menu. There's enough room between the search bar and the Clear List button.

Reproducible: Always
What buttons? I don't remember any "open" or "open containing folder" buttons? Did you have an extension installed that supplied these buttons?
No, standard Seamonkey, see attached image. It has buttons for Properties, Cancel, Launch FIle, Show File Location a.s.o.

Yes but there are no "open" and "open containing folder" buttons as you originally stated.

Obviously open and open containing folder were synonyms for Launch File and Show File Location. I use those two buttons a lot too and it would be nice to have them back.
The two buttons are missing in the download "progress window" too (which can be selected as an alternative to the download manager).  Most annoying to have to navigate to the download folder twice in a row (once to download, once to access the file).

This changed from SeaMonkey 2.0a3 to the current version:

Philip: I intentionally haven't confirmed this one, as I consider it WONTFIX but want to hear about Beta 1 feedback before resolving as such.

Because too low demand?
Is it that expensive adding the button (at least "open location", execute/open can be done by double clicking/pressing return on the entry) or do you just not see the benefit of it?

People in the MozillaZine SeaMonkey forums want the buttons in the progress window/dialog back.
But I think they're ugly and I removed them intentionally, in both the manager and the progress dialogs. That said, this bug is about the manager, not the progress windows.
Perhaps Philip could extend his toolbar customisation work to the download manager too, then we can all have whatever buttons we like ;-).
No, customization wouldn't help there, but you can write an extension to get them, this shouldn't be hard.
Though it's a pitty an extension is needed for this, I anyhow just made one:

I nevertheless still hope for inclusion of these buttons in the app itself.

It's nice to have such a extension, but I fear you just delivered a excuse for the developers not to fix this issue. :(
