Look at the CPU column, the one with the highest number
is probably the one you want to kill.

In this case, the OP's problem was that his download didn't stop, not that something was hogging his system. The download would have been throttled by the speed of his Internet connection, so it seems to me that it's questionable as to whether it would have consumed the most CPU time.

In any case, since he was using Firefox for the download, it would have been a simple matter of sorting by name and looking for the task called "Firefox".
