 Replying to [comment:8 phoudoin]:

 I'm for sticking to setting the correct icon as soon as possible and take
 the add-overlay-route. I'd like to recognize the downloading file by its
 icon, if possible.

 Coming back to the original ticket issue: Never minding if Web+ can
 continue paused downloads (which would be a very nice feature), I think if
 a user is pressing "Remove" while downloading or after pausing/stopping
 and it becomes thus incomplete, the incomplete file should be deleted (put
 into Trash).

 There's still a bit of a risk of confusing removing/deleting a file, i.e.
 what puts the file into Trash and what just removes the entry from the
 download manager list. Maybe we could see if moving to icon-buttons
 instead of text-buttons can resolve that. But that's for another ticket...
