I hope it's not too presumptuous if I add bug 797547 to this list.
Comment 2 Guillaume C. [:ge3k0s] 2012-10-28 12:53:09 PDT
Bug 588314 should be blocking the release.

> Bug 588314 should be blocking the release.

why? how does that behavior differ with the panel compared to the old DM?

With the download icon we do have a visual feedback on completed downloads. The growl becomes irrelevant.

What if the window area with the button is not visible?

Then maybe the growl should be pref'd on or another visual indication should be visible. The main problem is that there is a redundancy when the button is visible and the growl is pref'd on. UX folks must have an opinion about this. We should ask them.

Bug 588314 should not block the release of the Downloads Panel. It's not a new regression and isn't something that is special to the new implementation. It can be fixed as a follow-up and discussion for bug 588314 can happen in bug 588314.
Comment 8 Marco Bonardo [::mak] 2013-02-20 14:50:40 PST
We are far past the "blockers" point, any remaining work (mostly minor annoyances) is just tracked as usual with tracking flags and goes the usual approval path.

Thanks everyone for the help.
