Users need to be able to see the download immediately. The fade-in feature often does not show the download until after the download is completed. This is a cosmetic problem but extremely annoying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right-click and "Save Link As" on any downloadable file of considerable size (e.g., 20megs+). 2. Wait for the download manager to show the download. 3. Continue to wait. 4. Download completes and download manager will finally show the download in the list.
If there is a way to turn off this "feature", a setting should be added to Firefox Download Options.

It could be a problem that is easier to see on a slower pc. Using an 800mhz celeron. In any event, there isn't a reason for a fade-in feature in a download manager.
The fade-in itself is not a real problem, more a matter of personal taste. But you're probably experiencing bug 227260. dupe ?
It could be a dupe as CPU usage does spike to nearly 100% until just after the fade-in completes.
