User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 When you start to download a file, and only one window is left open, and you close it, it displays something like "Are you sure you want to exit Firefox and cancel all downloads?" when on a mac, you can close all the windows of a program and still have firefox open. This may confuse some, because closing all the windows of firefox on a mac will NOT cancel all the downloads. This will probably causes the user to click cancel, keep the window open, and leave it open to keep the download is going, when you really don't need to. If the user chooses the "Cancel all downloads" button it doesn't really cancel them, and will keep downloading them in the background, with no firefox windows open. This probably does not apply to other OSs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download any file that will take some time to download, so you can complete the rest of the steps. 2. Close all windows, except for one. 3. Close the last window. A message will appear saying if you want to quit and cancel the download. 4. Click the "Cancel all downloads" button 5. Go to the "Tools" menu and choose "Downloads" Actual Results: The file being downloaded was not canceled, it was still loading. Expected Results: Not shown a message to cancel it when the last window was closed. It should have shown it when the user chose "Quit Frefox" from the Firefox menu. Probably only applies to Mac OS.
Exact text of error message reads "If you quit now, 1 download will be canceled. Are you sure you want to quit?"
Just checked this in Firefox 126.96.36.199, and this bug no longer seems to occur; suggest closing. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-GB; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/184.108.40.206 ID:2007051502
Closing WFM per #2.
