Drag-n-drop link to download manager doesn't work

The process starts but nothing happens. No file is downloaded & the manager Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open download manager, i.e. Ctrl-Y. 2. Drag link to download manager. 3. Asks where to put file dialog appears and click OK. 4. Starting... Starting... Nothing happens! Actual Results: Download manager shows the request but the download is not working. Expected Results: Download should start & finish!
I think this might be another thing broken by the checkin that made downloads send the referrer url, though I can't remember what the other bug was now. :-(
Found it now, Bug 239472, same cause, different effect, making the change I suggested in that bug also fixes this one. CONFIRMING

While it would be nice to have this fixed by 0.9, it's not essential that we fix this before 0.9 ships. Most people will never hit this bug.

This fixes the problem by adding a couple of if() statements, we can't assume that there even will be a content frame so check first (there won't be if the dl originates directly in the DM or in the Page Info dialog, see Bug 239472). I don't know whether it would be more appropriate to try guessing the referrer from the top browser window in cases such as this but I didn't bother adding anything along those lines.
+ing since there's a patch
