Anyone here ever used the download manager in his extension?
All I need is to start a download, the data is there, even
downloadManager.openProgressDialogFor(downloadObj, window.opener, true);
displays the right info, but still no progress.

What am I missing/doing wrong?

Thanks for your time and help,
