+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #850378 +++

Bug 850378 lets "Save Link As..." use the value of a[download] as the filename suggestion for most cases by setting it as hint for the Content Disposition Filename, but in the case of headers not being received before a certain threshold the code gives up waiting and just uses the link text as a suggestion instead, in order to preserve perceived responsiveness of Firefox.  If the download attribute is there, that should be used instead of the link text.
