Description

have a suggestion that is minor and easy to implement.

The status bar (at the bottom of the JD download page) shows these items:

Package(s)
Link(s)
Total size
Dowloadspeed
Download complete in
Progress

However, the items are not consistent in what they represent. "Package(s)" and "Links" both refer to the total number of packages/links. The remaining 4 items refer only to enabled links. This is confusing.

I suggest changing the output for "Package(s)", "Links", and "Total size" as follows:

X / Y

Where "X" is the enabled quantity and "Y" is the total quantity (enabled + disabled). For example, a user might have 50 links, but 10 have been disabled. Then under "Link(s)", it should show "40 / 50".

I also suggest making the "X" part black, and the "Y" part grey. This might help make it clear to users that what is being shown is a breakdown based on enabled/disabled status of queued links.

The remaining three items, "Downloadspeed", "Download complete in" and "Progress" probably only make sense to show for enabled links, so they do not need to change.
