The 'low skill users' don't have to know 'how to use' a lot of Addons,
and if you are installing FF for them, you could just install the Addon
to eliminate this problem of yours.

Or, you could just tell them to press and hold the CTRL key then tap the
'J' key.

Or you could tell them to press the 'F10' key, the click the Tools menu,
then click 'Downloads'.

Sure, this is why I set the Downloads location to the Desktop, so
Downloads aren't hidden.

But if you are installing FF for them and assisting them all the time,
then you could install it and be done with it.
