Firefox Download window not appearing

Even after pressing Ctrl J, your Download window is not appearing, or after clicking on Tools -> Downloads, the Downloads window doesn't open in firefox, then follow this simple steps.
1. Go to D:\Documents and Settings\your username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx
2. Find for the file, downloads.rdf
3. Delete downloads.rdf
xxxxxx is something that will be set by Firefox.
Don't worry in deleting this file, this will get created the next time you start Firefox.
If you don't find the Application Data folder then in folder options, choose to show hidden files.
If you don't find downloads.rdf, then search for the file downloads.sqlite
If while deleting the file it says, that "the file cannot be deleted, it is used by another application", then restart the system, and try deleting the file. This will work.
