Here is an image of what I am talking about Imgur

I have two 'download in progress' icons in my Safari window that won't go away. They two 'download in progress' icons are not clickable either.

There is no progress bar under my 'Downloads' Folder in my icon doc as you can see here: Imgur

How do I make the two 'download in progress' go away?

I have:

  • Restarted my computer
  • Restarted Safari
  • Screened my downloads folder to find any 'in progress downloads' or unknown files... All files in my downloads folder are mine and none are 'in-progress'

What do I do? I am a windows/Linux guy and really not familiar with bugs like this in Mac/Safari.

Note: I have OSX 10.10.2 installed

Try right clicking on the toolbar, selecting Customise Toolbar and dragging it away, it should disappear in a poof of smoke.

Also are you sure you've actually quite and restarted Safari, often rebooting relaunches where you last left off... You have to actually quit the application from the Menu bar...

  • Thanks that worked! I tried customize toolbar before and it didn't work. But when I followed your directions and 'customized it'. 'Poof!' Its all fixed! Thank you for the help!
