Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a few large downloads (e.g. an ISO image, long video)
2. In the middle of the download, shut down your wifi router - or do something
similar to simulate a temporary loss of internet connection (e.g. when the
signal is weak).
3. Observe that Fx has gone into offline mode, and:
a. terminated all downloads
b. shows a separate dialog box for each terminated download
4. Go online again, restart the downloads, and observe that the previously
downloaded data is being downloaded again.
At minimum, 4. should be able to resume downloads. [Perhaps this depends on
Expected is that Fx doesn't terminate downloads, and lets them time out - or
continue if the network connection comes back up.
Terminating the downloads might perhaps be the right thing if the user went
offline intentionally - but definitely not when the offline state is transient.
