Downloads slow down after repeated use
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 I've been downloading things in the browser from images, .doc's, ppt's, and pdf's. I've been using it for a while. Nowadays, when I want to download an image, the browser pauses for about 10 seconds. I created a new profile and I don't experience this slowdown. I've tried to clear the cache but this did nothing. I think it might be the download manager. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. right click on an image. 2. Select Save Image. 3. Select a location to save. This is when I experience the pause. 4. Open download manager. 5. select all the items in the list (I have about 1000+ items). 6. Click "Remove from List" Button. Completely lock out. I have to go to task manager to end the program. Actual Results: See above. Expected Results: After step 3, I should not have experienced a pause. After step 6, the download manager and mozilla should not have frozen. I should be able to select every item listed in the download manager and click remove list. As is is, I have to highlight no more than 10 items at a time.
workaround: Close Mozilla, delete downloads.rdf in your profile. An empty file will be recreated at next start of Mozilla.
