Hi Juan, can you verify and provide steps to reproduce.

I tried downloading the file on Metro Firefox and it shows the total file size.  This may have been fixed at some point? Please re-open if you can still reproduce.

Just tested again on Fx 26.0a1 (2013-09-11).

I'm on a VM from the Paris office, so connection and environment are different but the results is the same.

both Desktop and Metro tests are being done in the same VM and both in the Paris office right?
Yes, it's the same version of Nightly, on the same VM and network.
Resetting back to Juan, I can't reproduce but Francesco definitely can.  Maybe you can find some extra steps that differentiate our two setups or something.

Tested on 2013-09-16 I haven't been able to reproduce this on an en-US build while trying to download different types of files including the one in the original report. I will try downloading an localized nightly build and see if there's something there.

A localized nightly (it) built from the 11th also didn't show this problem. I tried navigating to the file through the ftp directory as well as trying typing the link as in comment #0.
I am able to reproduce this problem after changing the Clock, Language, Region settings in Windows by changing the "." separator to "," in the number formats (Additional Settings).
Should be fixed by the patch in bug 910597.  Juan could you please verify on tomorrow's nightly build or later?

This is now working on the latest nightly built from

I tested by toggling the region settings corresponding to decimal separators and in both cases, using "." vs ",", I got a total file size and current download size reported.
