    Firefox will save these items: "Browsing history" was changed to "Browsing & download history" in revision 132496, approved today.

    These items and settings will be removed: I have a new revision pending to this section, to remove download history from the list of items that are removed.

    Download history is now stored in the Places database (places.sqlite file) so it's saved along with bookmarks and browsing history during a Firefox Refresh. The Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data article's "What information is stored in my profile?" section was updated awhile ago and it now says the following: Bookmarks, Downloads and Browsing History: The places.sqlite file contains all your Firefox bookmarks and lists of all the files you've downloaded and websites you’ve visited.
