see the discussion in bug 870659 (and mostly https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=870659#c5), we don't know if we want to do bug 870659 at all, so we need UX to evaluate the interaction here, both for the panel and the Library view.

Paolo made some pretty good points about this here:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=870659#c5

We shouldn't mess with the ordering in the downloads panel. That list is not very long for most use cases anyway and if there are running downloads, they are always shown in the last item (the one that combines all running downloads that are not shown directly in the panel).

It makes sense though to have a filter in the library, as the list can get very long there. Since we are moving the library into a tab at the moment, it makes sense to look at this issue in the context of that design process.
