This should only be about removing the file from the download history as in PB mode session data isn't kept, the dowmnloaded files should still be in the location where you saved them.

If the PDF is opened rather than saved, the downloaded file is considered temporary and will be deleted at the end of the private session. You need to manually save the PDF for it to be preserved.
