In the old download manager, pasting a URL causes Firefox to download a URL.  This shortcut is useful because it's the one of the only ways to make Firefox start a download immediately rather than loading and viewing the URL.  This is no longer possible in the new downloads panel UI.
loss of functionality

invert this and early return, so less indentation.

nit: lots of empty space above, maybe compact code a bit
