1. Copy the download link of a file.
2. Open Download Manager.
3. Paste the download link.

The download starts.

Paste button is disabled so the download link cannot be copied in the download manager.

This bug is intermittent and seems to reproduce easily using the Nightly build. The occurrence of the bug is around 33%.
Is this a regression from Fx25?

I managed to reproduce this bug on Fx 25 and Fx20.
Flags: needinfo?(catalin.varga)
In that case we do not need to track this as a long-standing issue, thanks Catalin
