I'd like to make suggestion for new feature in Firefox 3. It'd be nice to have some kind of bandwidth throttling implemented in download manager. I think best way to do this would be to copy it from WinSCP, it has small slider next to each download ranging from 0 to 100% and you can throttle the speed for each individual download in real time. It'd also be nice to put one slider on the top to control all items at once. This way you could decide what you want to have downloaded first and also transfer bandwidth to other applications.

The feature may be optional so that people who don't like it could turn it off or put it in a hide-able side panel. But I think many people would appreciate it.

One more suggestion. How about adding feature to save session and exit via ctrl+click on cross(close) button? This would be a nice replacement for the "save session" plugin which I'm currently using.
