When I download a file using Safari or Camino on Mac OS X, the two browsers add the source URL into a Spotlight meta tag which preserves the original location for later reference.

When you press Cmd-I on the downloaded file in Finder, the Information dialogue shows the source URL (please see attached screenshot).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Download any file. Navigate to the file using Finder. Press Cmd-I.
Actual Results:  
No source URL meta information.

Expected Results:  
The source URL of the downloaded file.

As Camino already supports this feature, it might be possible to integrate Camino's implementation into Firefox on Mac.
