after I exit Firefox all downloading in background files are ended without any information about it. Is there a chance to change it ?

Chosen solution

Try changing the hidden preference browser.download.manager.quitBehavior to a value of 2 in about:config to get a warning window when closing Firefox during downloads. I have included a link below on using about:config
