Steps to reproduce:

2. Go to Menu -> Page -> Save as PDF

Expected results:
- "Downloads are disabled  in guest sessions" notification is displayed

Actual results:
- "Download started..." notification is displayed

It seems that the patches from Bug 1046941 were lost in the transition to download.jsm

We do this a little differently now, but we probably need to do something like (guessing at functions a bit):

if (!ParentalControls.isAllowed(ParentalControls.DOWNLOAD_FILES, download.source)) {
  download.cancel().catch(Cu.reportError);
  download.removePartialData().catch(Cu.reportError);
  NativeWindow.toast.show(Strings.browser.GetStringFromName("downloads.disabledInGuest"), "long");
  return;
}

I think we should WONTFIX this bug, since downloads in guest mode are actually useful for things like PDF menus. wesj pointed out in triage that preventing excessive downloads was more of a concern when we had the lock screen widget, but now we don't have that, so we don't need to be worried.

However, if we do re-enable downloads in guest mode, we should file another bug to make sure that we delete these downloads after the user exits guest mode.

The code seems fine, but earlier in the bug you suggested WONTFIXing. Do you plan to back this out after we solve cleanup, or what? Can we get a summary in the bug of what we think is supposed to happen here?

I was going to WONTFIX this because I thought that this was actually a useful regression (a feature, not a bug!), but after more consideration, there were enough other issues that we would need to do more work to properly support downloads in a guest session. Bug 1137380 was filed about this.
