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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20070719
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.
In the upper left of the screen, a very small blank GUI is opened.
The 'Downloads' window should open in place of the empty window.
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.
Huh. strange. Wonder what caused it. Anyway, thanks for retesting!
