I’ve never actually used the Firefox download window for anything useful. I don’t really care about keeping a list of downloads, and anytime I accidentally open the downloads window, it seems to hang the browser for a few seconds.

Uncheck the box for “Remember what I’ve downloaded”. You might also want to clear the download list while you are at it.
