    Okay, so I just updated my Galaxy S3 with the latest android update last Saturday. And since then, i've been getting bombarded with notifications about downloads on my phone. I thought it would be enough to just delete the things I downloaded (they were unimportant, just some pictures) so I did, I deleted all of them. AND THE NOTIFICATIONS STILL KEEP COMING! I clear my notifications bar and five or so minutes later the same list of download notifications comes right back. Does anyone have any idea of how to get rid of this, because this is really starting to get annoying.

    You have to go into the downloads app and clear everything out from there otherwise they will just keep popping up. Look for the icon with a green downwards arrow.

    Go into DOWNLOAD MANAGER, not just "downloads" and clear data. Clearing the download will erase your downloads. Clearing data in download manager stopped my repetitive notifications immediately.

    Go to the app drawer and find the icon with the downward pointing arrow. That's the download manager.

    After a whole day of research, I was able to figure out that this is a browser specific issue. The Dolphin browser is causing the keep coming the download notifications. I tried to download an item with Dolphin browser. Once the download is starting, all the old downloads appear in the notification drawer. One more issue, you have observed or not that is once the current file is downloaded and you tap on it, it won't open. You need to browse through file manager and open/play it.

    Finally, I backed up the data of Dolphin browser from the 'backup' option it has and then uninstalled and reinstalled both, Dolphin browser and Jetpack and it worked. Yaaay! no more download notifications.


    This method applies to any other browser like UC browser etc. Try and let me know if it fixed the issue.
