    Hi all
    I really don't know where this has vanished to. However my download icon, which used to be next to (or near the) google search box on the toolbar of safari has vanished. I really don't know where it has got to. I have tried to click on customise toolbar, but I do not see the download icon in there.

    When I download something, it briefly appears on the toolbar, then vanishes again. So therefore I have to open up downloaded items through finder, as its got a download icon on the left hand side of finder under Favourites.

    Can anyone help?

    I think it's a matter of going to the Safari preference pane, and under the 'General Tab' selecting the 'Manually' option in the 'Remove download list items' box. Hope this helps.

    thanks I have done this. will see how I get on, and if it comes back. But my understanding the icon was always showing, weather I downloaded something or i didn't. At the moment, its not showing yet, after I done what you suggested.

    Have you downloaded something since changing the setting?
