[Bug] Firefox asks to cancel download when switching profiles?

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

hi, this is on file as a bug at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1385347 - mozilla would probably accept a patch from a volunteer attempting to fix this this, but it's unlikely that they'd put any efforts into this themselves, since this is quite an edge-casey behaviour.
