How do I clear the download list (not delete the files)

i have 2 questions using Firefox for Android.

1. How do I clear the download list (NOT Delete the download list) ?. I need to only clear the download list in Firefox, not delete the files that I have downloaded.

2. Is there a way to select the folder every time I download a file ?. Right now I have changed the settings in about:config to save to a folder of my choice. 'browser.download.folderList' to 1 and 'browser.download.dir' set to the folder. This works fine and the file is saved to teh folder without any confirmation. However there is another setting 'browser. download. useDownloadDir'

browser. download. useDownloadDir Boolean True (default): Without asking a location, download files to the directory specified in browser.download.folderList False: Ask where to save every file

Changing this to false does not work. The download doesn't even start when this is false.

PS. I am on CM13 Marshmallow
