When you double click in the title bar of the download manager, you can maximize/restore.

Could you give a little more description of the issue? Yes, double-clicking the title bar to minimize is the correct behavior, and it works fine for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; en-US; rv:2.0b2pre) Gecko/20100707 Minefield/4.0b2pre. And this has to do with aero effects how?

Look at the attachment I posted. At the very bottom of the download manager's that HUGE strip of aero glass. You can't do anything to it (ie. double click, aero snap). All you can do is draw it. That's it. 

I apologize for being vague in the original description.
Because that isn't the title bar, it is simply plain chrome that is now transparent via aero. That space is still there in 3.6, it is just styled differently. Nothing changed except for the theme you could say.

That's besides that point. Why even style it like the title bar if it's not going to behave like it? I never said it wasn't there. In fact, as the bug title says "aero effects don't work fully in download manager". You can't even draw it by the empty "plain chrome" in the bottom.

Well, the reason the title bar has it is to look cool. And to look cool (that is the one and only reason), it was implemented in the blank space on the bottom of the download manager. I don't see your problem.

My problem is it should behave as other glass parts of the browser. Features shouldn't just be implemented "to look cool."

Taz, not all glass areas behave like the titlebar area. See IE9's tabstrip for example. Double-clicking on that creates new tabs. Glass does not equal Titlebar.

I do believe, though, that glass areas do represent "click and hold to drag the window" even outside of the titlebar.

If that's true, then we either need to make it opaque or we need to make it a drag target. 

Is there anything else wrong besides dragability?

I agree. Making it a drag target seems like the best idea.

The aero glass area at the bottom of the Downloads window (behind the "clear list" button and the search field) should accept click hold and drag for window repositioning. Alternatively, the area could be made into a standard toolbar where users do not have that expectation.
