contents of "save as ..." dialog box painfully slow
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 StumbleUpon/1.998 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 StumbleUpon/1.998 When I try to right-click and save an image from a website (any website), or a movie link, or even download something from someone's ftp server with Firefox, the actual contents of the dialog box are drawn painfully slow. I thought PeerGuardian might have something to do with it, but when I turn it off, it does the same thing. Slow dialog box drawing. I didnt see this discussed on the forums, or here on Bugzilla, but since this only happens with Firefox, and not on any other program on my system, I would think it's a bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find a picture (or any file) from a website 2. Right click, save as ... Actual Results: The contents of the dialog box draw painfully slow, listing files anywhere on the system: the desktop, or a folder I want to save files into ... Expected Results: The contents of the dialog box should draw very quickly, like it does for IE, or any other program.

check the sice of your downloads.rdf in your profile folder, delete it, see if its any faster.
(In reply to comment #2) > check the sice of your downloads.rdf in your profile folder, delete it, see if > its any faster. worked for me :) I was getting annoyed with it to but just thought it had got something to do with the website....... So having a big list in the downloads manager is a bad thing... just did a clean up there and the downloads.rdf file went from 114k to 1 k and the manager and save as dialog pops up fast again ...... so it is a bug..... in a way but for me it is resolved.... bug is for me download manager becomes very slow with a moderately big list expected to be fast still or at least warn u about it somewhere
