Details

During the installation of local XPI files the download manager shouldn't be used
because we don't have to download any file from the web. It's an ugly side
effect which disturbs the installation process.

Comment#3 probably means this one will become "WONTFIX"
If not, please record one vote AGAINST this, for reasons of code modularity.
