Windows taskbar download progress shows on all profiles

Description of the issue:
When using multiple profiles there will be multiple taskbar buttons for Brave (one for each profile). When performing a download the taskbar button fill up to show the progress. Downloading something in Profile 1 causes the taskbar buttons of all profiles to show the progress.

Sometimes there is a need to download things in different profiles, it would be useful to see the individual progress for each profile in the taskbar.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create multiple profiles.
  2. Open a new Brave window for each profile.
  3. In a single profile download something.
  4. View taskbar buttons.

Actual Result:
Taskbar buttons for all profiles show download progress from a single profile

Expected result:
Only the taskbar button for the profile doing the downloading should show the progress

Reproduces how often:
Every time

Operating System and Brave Version
Windows 10 1909 (18363.418)
Brave Version 1.2.42 Chromium: 79.0.3945.117 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
The taskbar buttons always show the latest downloads progress, so if a new download is kicked off in a different profile to the first then all taskbar buttons will reflect the progress of the new download.

Can you tell me if you’re downloading – for example – something on both browsing profiles at the same time, do the progress bars show for each individual download or is only one shown at a time?

No the last download to start is the one whose progress you see on all taskbar buttons for all profiles.
