It takes at least ten times as long to save a copy of an image that has already been downloaded for display as it does using IE. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!! Evidently there is something fundamentally amiss with the way that this software is architected. I don't understand the specifics, nor do I care. What I do know is that as long as the long-standing problem persists, this software is nothing but a joke. It is an unacceptable situation. The Mozilla browser and everything else that goes with it will never be taken seriously until the proponents of this endeavor exhibit the nominal honesty for them to acknowledge this problem and to admit that it must be solved. Until it is solved, the whole thing is utterly useless, and amounts to nothing more than a lot of hot air. Which is very unfortunate, since the only other alternative is Microsoft's ****. I guess what it boils down to is a choice between the lesser of two piles of ****.
No reason to shout. Reporter, do you have meny old entries in the Download Windos. If you do, can you clean them up (remove the old ones) ? That should speed up the behaviour of the Download manager considerably : bug 159107.
i was going to report a related bug/enhancement. when doing "save image as...," firefox seems to redownload the image, instead of saving the copy that's already downloaded. i would think it's a major issue...
...may be because somehow the server specifies no cache or something like that?
