Isisombululo esikhethiwe

I think some others have tried the about:config and did the change in the actual preferences to fix this. I found this on reddit talking about this problem. I haven't tried this change as posted so take with caution if you follow this.

Thanks mate! It solved the issue.

But I don't understand who are even asking firefox to do this unnecessary, inconvenient changes. We are really happy with the downloading manager. These recent updates are always having such issues! Not everyone will know how to change these settings! They will simply switch to other browsers. Mozilla should take user feedbacks into account. I have been complaining about different issues every month nowadays.
