"sending request to..." doesn't show progress bar

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

When Firefox is sending a POST request (such as when you send a form), the text "Sending request to <domainname>" appears in the status bar on the bottom-left part of the window. However, the progress bar on the right is shown completely empty and is not updated until the process is complete.

This is very annoying when for example you send big files through a form.

Firefox knows exactly the size of the request it is sending, and can perfectly know how many bytes it has sent, so there's no reason why the progress shouldn't be shown just as it is shown for other operations.

The issue is not fixed. Actually, it got slightly worse. There's no progress bar whatsoever, nor a percentage, nothing indicating the progress of the upload.

Actual used firefox is 45 into xenial; so many many changes have been made since you report that bug.
So report again against an active version if you think the design is not what you think it should be.

Did you miss the part where I said the issue still exists?

I've just checked on Ubuntu 15.10 which has NOT reached EOL.
