Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr-FR; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080201 Firefox/2.0.0.12

While downloading files of unknown size, the download field in the download manager progressively increases taking more and more space with the information about the file rapidly "sinking".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a file of an unknown size. The easiest way is to install this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6033 and to try downloading something from Youtube or any other site it supports. Some HTTP mail clients don't show file size either.
2. Try to download the file.
Actual Results:  
The download manager opens, and the file data start "sinking" making it impossible to see what it says. Having finished the download, the program gets back to normal as if nothing has happened.

Expected Results:  
File of unknown size should show information as any other file.

Screenshot explaining the problem
Does this happen in safe mode?  I just don't see how that can happen unless an add-on is doing something weird.
I download files of "unknown sizes" often, on XP/Vista, and don't see this.

No, in safe mode it does not happen. It definitely has nothing to do with the addon as the problem existed far before I installed it.

Are you using WindowBlinds, or something non-standard?

I don't use WindowsBlinds, but a modified theme. It seems like unistallation doesn't help. I created a new user and installed this theme for him - this experiment appeared to be successful.

OK, so a problem with a theme (which one?), not the base code.
