Downloads disappear from box after completion. (2nd try, I screwed up the first - sorry)

When I perform a web download, the download box opens and one sees the download progress, however the box empties out after the download completes, (pdf or exe files). I now have to search out the file do do anything with it such as run it. It never used to be that way, the box always showed downloads done that day. .exe files go to downloads and pdf files go to a temp file deep in my user folder chain. I assume that they get cleaned out when the computer is shut down. I wish to permanently save all downloaded files unless deliberately deleted by myself. pdf files do open in Nitro, (which I far prefer to either Foxit which gave me a hard time and the ever bulky Acrobat Reader). How can I return to the original operation of the Downloads box?

I appreciate the help. I knew it had to be in there somewhere but there are too many boxes to check! Firefox shouldn't really have changed my options when I updated it without my knowledge and permission.
