Can a cancel button be added to the update download screen so that the user be
allowed to cancel a update download in progress if required (a user may have
some reason to do so, the one below being an example but not the reason, so
please dont do a "This is a Alpha dude" reply)


I had filed a update bug report here

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=300903

that was closed as invalid shortly there after.

But before that, I was asked to update the url in about:config if I wanted to
desperately check updates for my just downloaded Deer Park Alpha 2. 

https://aus-staging.mozilla.org:8711/update2/0/%PRODUCT%/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/update.xml


Me, being the idiot that I am, actually did so to find "Deer Park 1.0+" being
recommended "highly", for security reasons (I Think). Me being the stupid that I
am, actually clicked on the update / download button only to find that I could
not cancel it. The update screen now says that the 7.4MB update is now complete
and will need a restart to be applied. (after doing my course in Industrial
Design, I have got this habit of clicking on every link possible to check out
what happens, just like a monkey on steroids jumping about for the heck of it)

PS: I promise I will not look for any more bugs  / enhancements in Alpha version
s after this. Promise

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Help -> Update and check for updates
2. Assuming you have updates available (which is not true right now), click on
the download / update option (forgot which one exactly)
3. For whatever reason that may lead you to so, try to stop the update downlosd
in progress. You just can't, simple.

Actual Results:  
Deer Park Alpha 2 completed downloading 7.4 MB "Deer Park 1.0+" update. There
was no "intutive"  way to stop it.

Expected Results:  
Provide a "Cancel" option to stop the update download in progress.
