Created attachment 8899500 [details] Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 08.39.07.png Nightly (57.0a1) on a fresh profile, by default, presents a confirmation dialog for downloads. Since the dialog does not present immediately, I have frequently found Firefox waiting in the background for me to confirm that I want to start the download I assumed was already running and completed. Parity: Chrome, Safari do not present a confirmation dialog when I initiate downloading a file. Please reconsider this dialog being on by default for downloads.
The user experience team definitely agrees with this direction, and there is bug 1306339 on file to make the entire download experience more immediate. This is a major change with various dependencies, but we're not actively working on it right now. Some of the other bugs you filed are still valid, but when we have engineering time again, we'll likely spend it on the main change rather than the old dialog.
