    Don't know which version is the last one to have this option but in version 13 the preference Remember download history is not available.

    You're right. Under "Use custom settings for history", the settings "Remember my browsing history" and Remember download history" are now combined into a single setting, Remember my browsing and download history. I uploaded a screenshot for Windows 7 here:

    I posted a link to this thread in the Knowledge Base Articles forum "Firefox 13 Updates" thread, here, to make sure that Michael Verdi sees it.

    Hi Alice and Underpass ;)

    I downloaded version 11 and 12 to check, and the options "Remember my browsing History" and "Remember download history" are still two divided options. The change occurred with Firefox 13.

    Personal opinion, I think that combining the two options was not a very "happy" idea.

    I agree. They were better separated..
