    How do you mean when you "minimise a download" ?
    if you are on a dial-up connection then a download will make webpages load a lot slower.

    If you're on dialup and downloading a file its gonna slow down your normal internet browsing because most of your bandwidth is being used.

    So it is normal behaviour. When downloaded find something to read or something else to 'play' with. :D
