From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020622 BuildID: 2002062208 I really like the Download Manager. However, there are a couple features that would make it even more fun. Being able to right-click and select the options that are at the top would be nice (i.e., have a right-click menu with Properties, Cancel, Remove From List, Launch File, and Show in Explorer). This one I consider a bug: if you click "Properties" it brings up the old-school download window. However, if you then close that using the [X] at the upper-right, it cancels the download! It shouldn't, it should continue it in the Download Manager. (At least it keeps the part it already downloaded, so I only lose the time between clicking [X] and restarting, but it shouldn't stop unless I click the *Cancel* button, either on the old-school dialog or in the Download Manager. The point is there's a way to show the old-school dialog from DM, but there's no way to turn it off if the user just wants to watch the new DM dialog.) There's no way to restart/resume a failed download; that should be one of the options on the right-click menu (and should be a button at the top as well). This should apply to downloads that are Failed, Not Started, or Canceled. It would be nice if it saved the page that the download link came from, and gave an option (at the top and on the right-click menu) to open a new window with that page. This is different from restarting the download, as perhaps there was something else on that page (i.e., with ActivePerl, you download the installer and then there's a "Next" link to continue the registration process). Also, the Download Manager should have two additional columns so that it displays the same (or more) information as the old-school dialog: Elapsed Time, and Percent Complete (a number, that is, in addition to the Progress bar). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. This is an enhancement request.
I had one additional enhancement request: The old-school dialog's title is "xx% of ..." -- so if you minimize it, even with a lot of open windows, you'll see the percentage complete at the very least just by looking down at the Task Bar. The new Download Manager's title should change if the user clicks on a file, to be "xx% of ... - Download Manager" (or something similar). This way the new functionality is a superset. And if the user doesn't click on a file, the title should default to displaying the percent complete of the bottom-most file in the display (i.e., most recent download started).
I agree with the enhancements but the bug you submit, Ken, has already been reported in Bug #153702.
Please don't submit more than one bug/request per bug number as it makes it hard to work on them. Your suggestions are already addressed: The context menu: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132019 Closing properties stops download: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153702 The opening of the original page might not have been addressed. The time elapsed and percentage complete columns are already available. Just click the last button to the right of the column names and you will be able to see all the columns available for display. I am going to mark this bug won's fix because of the number of requests you placed together in one bug and most of them being duplicated. You should check out http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?product=Browser&component=Download+Manager for all the stuff that's being worked on for the download manager.
