When you download a file, the "Current Downloads" space is not properly updated
if the save location path contains an accent.
The download progressbar stay gray, no percentage is displayed, and when the
download is finished, it stays in the "Current Downloads" space and doesn't go
to the "Finished Downloads" space.

To reproduce this, just create a folder which name contains an accent (like
"Sébastien" or whatever) and try to download files in it.

This happens since the downloads sidebar is in Phoenix. As far as I remember,
Mozilla's download manager had had the same problem, but it's fixed now.

Screenshot of the bug

Attaching a screenshot.

Btw, I forgot to add that the "Cancel" link in "Current Downloads" doesn't work
for the downloads that have this bug.

I was wrong when I said that the finished download doesn't go to the "Finished
Downloads" section. It does move to this section, but
1. it is totally blank (see the new screenshot)
2. it also stays in the "Current Downloads" section (in the same state than on
the first screenshot: gray progressbar, no percentage, Cancel link, etc. It
doesn't show "finished" in bold as it does for other downloads).
3. if you close then reopen the downloads sidebar (ctrl+e 2 times), the file
isn't in the "Current Downloads" section anymore, but the empty line is still
in the "Finished Downloads" section.

I can reproduce this bug on the October 20, 2002 nightly build on Windows XP
Professional SP1.

I get the exact same behaveoir described in the Additional Comment #2 (emptey
line in the 'finished downloads section' and the current download entry
dissapearing after the toolbar is closed and re-opened

i can reproduce it with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:1.2b)
Gecko/20021020 Phoenix/0.3.

however, when mozilla downloads something into an accented folder, the details
do not appear in download manager either (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US;
rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021020).

perhaps this is a mozilla problem. i could not find an existing bugzilla report
for this in mozilla.

Philippe, bug 176407 is not a dupe, it's something different.

Marking bug as confirmed. I'm seeing this on Linux too; changing OS to all.

By "Changing OS to all" I actually meant it... <sigh>
