On a multiuser permissions (group permissions) set to a directory, the download
manager fails to inherit those permissions on a newly downloaded file into this
directory. It only set permissions for the user which has downloaded the file.
I use a NTFS partision so any new file must inherit its parent directory
permissions.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set permissions for a dir to a two or more users.
2. Download a file in that directory.
3. Check file permissions.

Actual Results:  
The newly downloaded file doesn't inherit its parent permissions.

Expected Results:  
On a NTFS partision any new file must inherit its parent directory permissions.
Isn't this an OS issue?
Duplicate of Core bug 224692?
No, it's not an OS issue, because other browsers handle this well.

And, no, is not a duplication of Core bug 224692, 'cause the drive is not
compressed, either the directory where the data is downloaded.
This is a dupe. You misread the summary of bug 224692. It says that /properties/
like permission, compression, encryption are not inherited. Your bug falls under
the first mentioned property.
