Are you saying that after closing the browser the list is gone?

You may be in Private Browsing mode, or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar.

The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always use private browsing mode Turn on Remember my browsing and download history At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

Thx, but the Download list keep hidden.

I dont know if places.sqlite file is corrupt or something like that.

Update: places.sqlite keeps all download even now. If I re-open Firefox, CTRL+J doesnt show me the last downloads, but If I open FirefoxDownloadsView (Nir Sofer), this shows me all downloads including the last one supposedly were deleted.

I dont know how restore the firefox download data.

Places Maintenance {web link} Allows to run Maintenance tasks on the database that drives Places, the bookmarks and history module behind Firefox.

Open the Add-ons Manager. Locate the add-on and press the Options button. Then follow the directions.
