Disabling Firefox “Download Completed” notifier

It’s the clumsy, irritating window-ish and useless pop-up that appears on the right bottom corner after a download is completed.

It’s useless, because I can monitor downloads by opening a file manager window in another workspace. It’s irritating because when it appears, it prevents my to click on the workspace switcher (usually I have Firefox open on a workspace, and move to others when needed).

Thankfully, it could be disabled, by entering about:config on the address bar, then searching for browser.download.manager.ShowAlertOnComplete and setting it to false.
