Hi,

You can try to set browser.download.manager.quitBehavior to 1 in about:config.

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.

The Config Descriptions add-on adds helpful source comments in about:config.
