Potch, the pagination on https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/5326/statistics/downloads/ is funky, in that it doesn't:

A) show you the number of total pages
B) ellipsize (sp?) in the middle and have endcaps (usually beginning with the first page and ending with the last, 'cuz that's handy)

> B) ellipsize (sp?)

/me votes yes on that, though Merriam-Webster seems indifferent. Might be a neologism from the world of tl;dr on the Internet ;)

one of the issues I have is that I actually don't know how many pages there are in the pagination, as I simply ask the server for more data when the user clicks next, and only refuse to advance a page when no data is returned. I'd like to come up with a far better solution for this.

With new design for stats page, following is current scenario:
There are 2 buttons: Previous and Next

Note: comment#2 also is addressed in bug 686643

Sounds like a good reason to wontfix?  People seriously interested in that data are going to be consuming the csvs anyway.
