Stop Firefox download window from blinking

The window that opens when you download a file in Firefox may sometimes be annoying, either because it pops up when you're trying to do something else or that the button/window on the windows taskbar starts to blink.

Firefox lets you disable these features through its advanced properties. Enter about:config into the address bar of Firefox, accept the "I'll be careful, I promise!" warning. Then enter one of the following in the Search field at the top: - set to 0 (zero) to disable blinking in windows taskbar. - set to false to prevent the download window from showing at all (it won't open if it's not already open) when you start a download. - set to false to keep the download window from stealing focus/showing when a download starts.
