Attached image screenshot with toast
Lately, I've been noticing that sometimes when I open Nightly and visit a website, a "Download Started..." toast appears, even when I know this url isn't downloading anything. It's a bit unnerving to see, and no one else on the mobile team seems to be noticing it.

My hunch is that it is something our Home Feeds add-on might be doing in the background? Can we investigate this to see what's happening? I'd like to avoid showing this toast if we can -- I can see more privacy concerned users than myself getting pretty upset about it.
As an update here, ibarlow said that he was still seeing this without the home feeds add-on (and I myself haven't seen this with the home feeds add-on), so it sounds like something else is going wrong here.

We should try to get a log the next time this happens.
This is from Downloads.jsm. James has a patch somewhere for it, but if I don't see it soon (this week?) I'll grab these bugs and start finishing them.

So, do you still need a log for this? Sounds like Wes knows what's going on

Fixed by backout. Tracking for our next pass at Downloads.jsm, but these are cluttering up my list of bugs.
