I've had files get stuck in this list even though the file itself was properly
downloaded.  I'm forced to manually delete the download file to remove these
invalid entries.  I also worry that some downloads never actually happen, and
this is why they remain in this list.  I'll keep an eye open.

I had the same problem but now it seems to work.
I had 3 file stuck in the list for a long time (2 phoenix and 1 mozilla build).
I just remove the file downloads.rdf and 'it seems to work now' (tm).
This for linux and Windows build.

And the same build for linux.

Just to commit my build #.

Doublechecked, I've got stuck downloads again.
For some reason, I've got the feeling that this downloads list was blank after I
did my surfing/downloading, and then /later/ these downloads appeared.  Of
course, I could be mad. =)

The dowload folder does not contain any accented characters.  It does, however,
have a couple of underscores " _ " in it.

The filenames themselves are mixed-case and contain spaces, but nothing out of
the ordinary.  I am unable to notice a trend with filenames, as I can download
<filename>001.ext and see <filename>002.ext stuck in the list.

If you do a clean install into a new directory and start with a new profile do
you see this problem?

I'll make an afternoon of this on Sunday with a clean install, and some surfing
with extra care taken to keep an eye out for this.

Confirmed.  Changed the summary to be a bit more descriptive.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021026 Phoenix/0.3

fresh install, fresh ~/.phoenix.

pulled up an adult website, opened bunches of links in tabs, flipped to tabs and
right-click-k (save linked target as) pictures. Downloaded a 21 pictures and 4
html pages this way.

It's possible for me to redo this test, and only use ctrl-s while viewing a page

During this browsing/saving, I kept the downloads sidebar open, and confirmed
all downloads succeeded and were cleared to the 'finished' portion of the list.

ctrl-w all tabs, paused for a moment on the last tab, ctrl-e to close the
downloads sidebar, then ctrl-w to close phoenix.

paused, loaded phoenix back.  ctrl-e, notice two of the downloads I made were
still pending and at 0% in the sidebar.  They were two different pictures from
different sites.  From what I can tell, it appears that the frequency of these
sticky downloads is based on the number of saves I make.
Summary: 'Current downloads' list is broken. → download sidebar: some downloads are sticky and at 0% next session.

I did a lot of work on downloads this past week, and I believe this may be
fixed.  Please try in tomorrow's nightlies (using new profiles).

My apologies for the delay in my followup.. for a while I couldn't ctrl-s or
couldn't properly save pictures the way I had been, so testing for this bug
wasn't very possible.

I just did some playing and can confirm that this bug appears to be completely
squashed.  Items appear in the ctrl-e download box as expected and don't linger
between sessions.
