I guess this would be a problem if this was something that normally happens, but closing a Firefox window should close it's corresponding download window, so what's the problem? Are you saying that sometimes you close Firefox main window and the download window stays open? If so, can you describe the circumstances in which that happens?

The reporter wants to say that when firefox main window and download window are opened and you close the main window you cannot re-open firefox again unless you middle click on the launcher icon of firefox or right click and select to open new instance. Just like bug 784804 for nautilus.

Bug says "Use the skip taskbar hint on the window." as a fix for the issue. This needs to be done in firefox itself.
