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.
Reopening as RFE.

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.
