We'll want to disable this about a week or two before the next merge (which is currently scheduled during the week of 2013-01-06).

So basically, we should shut this off on Aurora just before the holidays start.

The patch is the same used to disable in 18 (thus added dependency)
We should do this just before the christmas holidays, the next merge is on 7th jan, so that looks like about the requested 2-weeks-before-merge.
This should land before Friday.

This applies cleanly for me. Does this need an r+, or should I just request approval for mozilla-aurora?
just get approval, this went through enough landings already to required further reviews :)

Disable the Downloads Panel in Aurora 19

As Aurora 19 approaches the uplift, we want to disable the Downloads Panel, since we only left it enabled on Aurora for testing.

Followup to disable browser_first_download_panel.js, which was timing out.
Verified as fixed on Firefox 19 beta 1 - the downloads panel is disabled (per default the preference is set to true in about:config).
