Normally, when you close the last Firefix window, the download is stopped.

Were you using a third-party add-on before?

Is your download pausing until you start Firefox again, or it is canceled?

What version are you running? Try updating to 3.6.3, if you're not already.

You may try a system restore to get to a point before the troubles. If that seems like overkill, uninstall Firefox completely using Revo Uninstaller, then download a fresh copy from Mozilla and install it.
