FF 3.5.17 for Mac doesn't issue warning when Command+Q is pressed while downloading is in progress?
I'm using FF 3.5.17 with Mac OS X 10.5.
I think that FF used to issue a warning when Command+Q is pressed while a file download is in progress. Is that true?
I just unintentionally aborted a download by pressing Command+Q. What I wanted to do was simply close the browsing windows, and let the download continue.
Did or does FF have the feature where it issues a warning when Command+Q is pressed while a file download is in progress?

You can set the pref browser.download.manager.quitBehavior to 2 on the about:config page.
That will make Firefox ask for confirmation if you want to cancel the download if you close Firefox.
The value for pref browser.download.manager.quitBehavior Was "0" in my installation.
Was this default behavior new on or before 3.5.17?
I recall getting a warning when I pressed Command+Q while a download is in progress.
