Upgraded to 8.0 and list of downloads does not appear in the downloads window

Posted

After the upgrade when I download a file the download window appears (as set in the Preferences) but the file being downloaded does not get listed, the download window is ALWAYS empty, no matter how many items are downloaded - basically there is no history. When downloading something it appears in a flash in the downloads window then once it's downloaded the window is empty again.
