Track User Downloads

Is there a way through the firewall to track user downloads? Or create a rule that triggers when a file is downloaded?

    Not really, no.  Are you looking to track a download of a specific file?  Or just downloads?  When you go to a website you do a GET for the index.html file.  This is the same type of GET you would do to download an .exe file from that website.  You can't really keep track of 'downloads' in that sense then (looking at the HTTP request I mean).
