I just did a 9MB FTP download, and its estimate of the time remaining was pretty
poor -- it said 25 seconds were left just before it finished.
Confirming. I noticed this yesterday - it doesn't appear to take into account
the time taken to select the download location, when mozilla is still
downloading anyway.  I waited 10 seconds from the time the dialog came up to
presing OK, and at the end of the download I was told that I had 8 seconds
remaining. I tried anoth file, waited 30 seconds before pressing OK, and at the
end I was told that I had 35 seconds to go. Since it was only counting down in
lots of 5 seconds, those are quite accurate except for the offset.

downloadProgress.js probably shouldn't be setting the start time to the current
time in onProgress. The %age bar was accurate, but the elapsed time was
incorrect (it started from 00:00, and it shouldn't have, because the downloading
started immediately.

That was on an HTTP download - changing componant.

I fixed this along with something else. Adding appropriate triage keywords.

this is now fixed. when you first see the progress dialog the Elasped time field
now counts the time we were downloading while the Open/Save dialog was open.

vrfy fixed --ie, the Elapsed Time does take into account the time while the
Downloading and Save file picker dialogs were displayed [ie, includes initial
background downloading time]:

linux comm 2001.05.02.08
mac comm 2001.05.02.09
winnt moz 2001.05.02.12
Okay, I'm seeing this again.  Actually, the numbers are strange, more like bug
69307 with figures like "0-13:0-11" (but that was marked as a dupe of this).  

It doesn't help that the file size has been reported as smaller than it really
is.  I'm downloading a 110 meg file, but mozilla thinks it's only 41 megs. 
Don't know if that's a cause or a symptom.
