I keep getting this message, "Unknown time remaining " in the bottom right corner of the monitor as well as in the Download box during downloads. FF won't tell me anymore the amount of time it will take to download any file . I something wrong with my com or FF ?

Most likely the server isn't telling Firefox the size of the file so it can not compute the estimated time.

No problem. Does this always happen on the same site? Or when you download from anywhere?

No just this particular website for 2 days in a row which confused me :) Instead of checking with other websites in haste I posted my doubt here, anyway it seems to have sorted it out on this site and downloads from other sites are normal. Thanks for the help. Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year 2009.
