Description of problem:
When downloading a file, the Downloads window opens in a tiny sliver of a window
to the side of the screen.  If you expand the window, it is a completely blank
Firefox window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070719
Fedora/ Firefox/

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure Firefox is set to show the Downloads window by going to Edit ->
Preferences -> and click "Show the Downloads window..."
2. Attempt to download or save any file.  For example, right click on an image
on a webpage, and select "Save Image As".  Choose a location, and save the file.
Actual results:
In the upper left of the screen, a very small blank GUI is opened.

Expected results:
The 'Downloads' window should open in place of the empty window.

Additional info:
Default FC8T1 installation from LiveCD.  Fully updated.  Running GNOME with

This bug also prevents you from downloading files that are pulled from a website
using a "get" function.

When you click a "get" link, the empty window opens instead of a "save" dialog.
 This makes it impossible to download such files, since right clicking and
attempting a "Save As" will only save the html link.

Not being able to download files is a real problem. Not sure if it's worth a
Medium priority though.
