Downloading should not freeze main window
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 Firefox/2.0b2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 Firefox/2.0b2 Whenever I click on a link to download a file, the browser window will be unresponsive until the download successfully initiates and progresses. This is the case even when I want to download an image from an existing page, like when I view the background image and try to save it. I don't want any unresponsiveness whenever I download something from an existing page or even from links to files. The browser needs to be able to use the cached image or have the download as a separate thread. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. On an existing page, right-click and select view background image. 2. Right-click on image and do a Save. 3. Browser window becomes unresponsive while the download takes place and takes several seconds before it becomes responsive again. Actual Results: Browser window was clickable but unresponsive and I see the error on the title bar, browser Not Responding. Expected Results: Downloading an image from an existing page should not render main window from being unresponsive.
