Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1

If multiple downloads are in progress at the same time, the remaining time until all downloads are complete is shown in the lower right corner of the Firefox Browser Window.

This time is calculated wrong. It shows the sum of the remaining time of all downloads and does not divide this sum with the number of active downloads.

Example:

There are 4 downloads active, each 100MB in size. Remaining time for each download is about 30 mins.

The status in the browser - lower right status line - shows the sum of all remaining times, which is 2 hours and does not divide the sum of remaining times by 4.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start several downloads at the same time
2. take a look at the browser window, lower right
3.
Actual Results:

I can't reproduce this; in my experience, it takes the longest-time-remaining download.

File sharing sites for free users may be part of the problem. Other reports here. My MacOS machine reports 10 mins at start of a download and speed in line with that but takes about 40mins. Chrome reports a much slower speed.

I believe this information was removed from the main browser window a while ago, so this issue does not exist anymore, right?
