Previously (1-2 years ago) Firefox stored all of my Download History for at least 6 months. Now it only stores this History for 7 days w/o access to older downloads. How can this be changed so I can view at least 6+ months?

Currently the Firefox versions keep a maximum number of visited page. - Synced tabs will expire in 7 days. - Synced history will expires in 60 days. - New history is only uploaded for the last 30 days.

That is no longer the case, this has been gradually extended over the past years and is currently one year (366 days in Firefox 76+).
It sounds that you do not keep the history and that somehow your history is cleaned up once a week. If you use external cleanup software (CCleaner) then check the settings for Firefox.
Firefox manages downloads in the Downloads folder in the Library (History -> Show All History)
- downloads are treated as history items: clearing history removes corresponding download items and vice versa
