Hello, I recently migrated to a new MAC and now when I download a file and click on "show all downloads", it opens the about:downloads tab and not the downloads list from the library. Is there any way to force Firefox to open the Library when I click on see all download please? Thanks

That happens if you run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History). You only get the Library Downloads Manager if you run Firefox in regular mode.
