Firefox Nightly 37.0a1 20141214030205 on Windows 8.1 Ongoing downloads gets canceled in private browsing if the tab starting the download gets closed. My STR: 1. Set Firefox to always start in Private Browsing mode. 2. Go to https://air.mozilla.org/intern-presentations-36/ 3. Below the video, click "Download". 4. Right-click "WebM" and "Save as". 5. Pick location and save the file. 6. While the download is still ongoing, open a new tab and close the one with https://air.mozilla.org/intern-presentations-36/ Actual result: Download gets canceled when closing the tab which started it. Expected result: Download continues and is not bound to a tab.
> Download gets canceled when closing the tab which started it. That's not completely true. I opened this bug-page in the browser, middleclicked on the URL, AirMozilla is opened in a new tab, and I started the download from there. Closing the AirMozilla-tab didn't stop the download, but opening a new tab and closing the Bugzilla-tab, from which the AirMozilla-tab was opened, did stop the download.
Ehsan, are you the right reviewer here? This seems to be a case where we're firing a notification when we shouldn't be. The key is that when privtebrowsing.autostart is true, we probably shouldn't fire last-pb-context-exited.
