My question concerns this Download Library that I found in version 98.

I do not like it now want it.

In doing a search to remedy this I came upon Download history window in support. It said to go to about:config page and change from True to False on browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel = false. I did this and this Download Library is still there.

How do I stop having a History of my Downloads?

I get the developers think the new features might be needed and good, and some are very beneficial. But, sometimes just leave things alone. At least have some setting in Privacy & Security to give those the option to turn it off. Was that not option? You all are coders, just add a few more lines of code. Easy for me to say.

Thank you Irv

That Downloads folder you noticed in the Library where you see the files you downloaded has always been there and isn't something new. If you do not want to keep the downloads history then you need to clean this up yourself or disable the browsing and download history or use Private Browsing mode.
