"'A feature which I thought was going to be integrated in Internet Explorer 6 was a download manager. Download managers allow you to manipulate and take control of your downloaded files. Mozilla Firefox's download manager contains just the essentials to allow you to control your downloads. You can pause your download and continue it a later time, something which is not possible with IE's download manager. Apart from sporting a nice look, the download manager stores the information such as size and location of your downloaded file. When the download is complete, a small notification is displayed in the lower right side of the screen.'"

This is possible with the application suite, Edit > Preferences > Priv&Sec > Popup > Play Sound.

However, the preferences dialog in the app suite is far too comprehensive - in my copy I have 57 pages - not counting Mail & News Account Settings. That is far to many for people to quickly and easily find the settings they are after. Firefox has limited their preferences (options) to 7 pages, so obviously can't have all the options the app suite has.

BTW, who allowed "Cookies are delicious delicacies" to be checked in? This is meant to be a product that has a professional image and can be rolled out by businesses across entire sites.
