This is what I saw today, the progress bar should go to end, but ends earlier, may be a recent regression
Priority: -- → P2
and Optimizer made me notice the problem is actually the long download name is pushing width of the panel, it should be cropped
Summary: Progressbar of "Other downloads" looks wrong → Long download file names are not properly cropped
So, the problem here is that we're setting a min-width on the description, but since there's no maximum, the description doesn't know when to start cropping.

The solution is to use width instead of min-width.
Attached patch Patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
So, here's a refinement to my solution: I set a width on the downloadTarget to match downloadDetails.

min-width overrides width, so in the event that some locales have the downloadDetails.width < downloadsSummary.minWidth2, we automatically set the width to the larger of the two. This allows cropping to work properly.

Review of attachment 699823 [details] [diff] [review]:

as discussed over IRC, this increases size of the panel cause the target font is larger than the details font

Ok, alternative solution; set the downloadDetails width on the vbox that wraps downloadTarget, downloadProgress and downloadDetails.

It means setting downloadDetails' font-size percentage on the vbox, and then boosting downloadTarget's font-size. It's not totally precise, but the error is negligible.

I'm really glad you found this solution

::: browser/themes/gnomestripe/downloads/downloads.css
@@ +104,2 @@
>  .downloadTarget {
> +  font-size: 111%;

mbrubeck in #fx-team suggested calc(100%/0.9) that is easier to mentally connect to the above 90%, or in the pinstripe case to 95% (so no need to recalculate manually if it should ever change)...

may be a bit more expensive but in the end we just show 3 items here.

And I'd suggest adding a brief comment above explaining why we do this (included a reference to &downloadDetails.width;).

same across all themes

here I meant "above both rules"
Actually, the details text can also contain the host, and the host may be long, so please reintroduce crop="end" in the details field. sorry for misinformation.
Comment added, and using calc now.
