Went through the following "Defect" for iteration #16 with a lot of issues with downloading. Used the following build:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2013-10-16-03-02-02-mozilla-central/

- Went through the original issue described in comment #0 without any issues
- Downloaded several exe's and other files from websites without any issues
- Ensured that the download was completed succesfully without any issues
- Ensured that it appeared in the correct "Download" folder once it was completed
- Went through all of the above test cases in full & filled views

Ran into several issues when going through downloading and created several bugs. Marking this is a pass as download is working which is the scope of this issue.
OS: Windows 8 Metro → Windows 8.1
