The browser freezes if, while performing a download I close the main browser window then try to open a new instance. It tries to open the previous session then it freezes and the frozen process can only be terminated via task manager

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start a download
2.close the main browser window, but leave the download  window open
3.open a new instance
Actual Results:  
The browser freezes wile try to open the previous session

Expected Results:  
Firefox should have opened only a new tab and should have started normally without freezing

Using the default theme, on a PC equipped with AMD Phenom X6 processor and an AMD Radeon graphics card
