If you are downloading multiple (large) files at a time, only the two active downloads appear in the downloads window. You can't be sure that the downloads went through on the other files, and you can end up clicking them twice, downloading 2 copies of the same file. I think as soon as you ask camino to download a file, it should appear in the downloads, but as "inactive" or "paused" until there are less than 2 filed downloading at once. Similar to Safari.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download a file
2.While that file is downloading download another file
3.Download a third file.
Actual Results:  
after the first 2 files are downloading, the third, or fourth, fifth, or sixth file for that matter doesn't appear. 

Expected Results:  
While I understand you don't want to download too many files at once, it would be nice if they would appear as "idle" or "waiting" so that you don't have to guess if the computer recieved your request to download the file. Similar to how Safari works.

You're using a really ancient version of Camino; is this still a problem for you in a recent nightly?

I was doing this very thing the other day and had the third download appear in the window immediately....

I thought we had a bug about this already, but I'm not seeing it, so confirming. The tricky part is how we handle getting the information about what to save it as, since that requires talking to the server

Yeah, I thought we had a bug on this too.

We *do* auto-queue stuff if the server forces it (i.e., if you manage to exceed the max connections per server during a break in the downloading, you can get several files queued up but they'll just sit there with the indefinite progress bar until a connection frees up) but not otherwise.
You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
