Downloads that are dragged and dropped into the downloads icon are having the 'Pause' contextual menu disabled
Reproducible on: Firefox 32 RC (BuildID: 20140825202822): Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 Firefox 32 beta 9 (BuildID: 20140822024446) Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 the latest Aurora (BuildID: 20140826004003): Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 the latest Nightly (BuildID: 20140826030203): Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0 STR: 1. Launch Firefox and navigate to http://www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html 2. Drag&drop a medium/large file to the Download icon. 3. Click on the Download icon and open the contextual menu. Expected results: 'Pause' option is enabled. Actual results: 'Pause' option is disabled. Notes: 1. Also reproducible on Mac OS X 10.9.4 and Ubuntu 13.04 32-bit. 2. The same behavior also in Library (Ctrl/Cmd + J). 3. Not reproducible with Firefox 20.0.1 - it's a regression; the regression range will be posted here by tomorrow. 4.

IIRC we use a non resumable channel for these transfers... I might be wrong but that's what I recall. We can probably improve here by doing the download differently, I think we had a similar issue with downloads restarted from History and we introduced DownloadURL in ContentAreaUtils. We might try to reuse that here.
