When saving small files with recent builds, the download manager does not open
but the files are saved.  Also, the popup notification does not appear to
indicate the download is complete.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Goto http://texturizer.net/firebird/extensions/ and try to save an xpi file
from a fast server.  The download manager will not open.
2. Goto http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firebird/nightly/latest-trunk/
and download a nightly build.  The download manager will open.

Actual Results:  
Download manager does not open.

Expected Results:  
Download manager should open even for small files that take < 1 sec to download.

This is the way that the system was designed. The download manager is not
invoked for files that do not take long to download.

I do not agree with the design then.  What if I wanted to launch the file or
show the file's location after I downloaded a small file?  Then I'd have to do
it manually.  If anything, there should be an option to use the old download
windows instead of the new download manager.

confirming as RFE
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
There's a hidden pref to control the delay. Use about:config to set:

browser.download.manager.openDelay  to 0

There will be no UI.
