[Note]:
- See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1391486#c11 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1391486#c12 for background

[Affected versions]:
- 56.0b11 build1 (20170911193316)
- 57.0a1 (2017-09-14)

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 10 x64
- Ubuntu 16.04 x64
- Mac OS X 10.11.6

[Steps to reproduce]:
Prerequisite:
- Cloud storage provider client desktop app installed, such as Dropbox

1. Launch Firefox with a clean profile
2. Open about:config and create "cloud.services.api.enabled" boolean pref (set its value to "true") and "cloud.services.storage.key" string pref (set its value to a provider key such as "Dropbox")
3. Ensure you have a valid download path for the cloud storage downloads by manually creating the "Downloads" folder in the provider's folder e.g. ~/Dropbox/Downloads
4. Open about:preferences, switch between the 3 options under the "Downloads" section and inspect each corresponding radio button 

[Expected result]:
- The user is able to easily switch between each download option 
- Each corresponding radio button is fully functional

[Actual result]:
- When switching between the third ("Always ask you where to save files") and the second option ("Save files to <provider name>") from the "Downloads" section, the first option ("Save files to <system default downloads>") gets selected for a very short time instead of the second one (see the screencast https://goo.gl/EbFQA2).
