How do you download a product that didn't finish downloading but was cleared from downlad window. Otherwords the downloads where long files and kept failing

Posted

I was downloading long files and they would fail so I tried one by one and failed but now they are cleared out of the window. So how can I get them back to try to download again. I can't find my original download link

Chosen solution

ok , when you choose to delete your private data in firefox' private settings, then this will also get rid of the download data, so i fear they won't be retrievable in firefox. the backup & restore button will only work for bookmarks & restore the whole set of bookmarks that were present on the specified date...

ps. i think we're all ok :-)

hello, when you go to firefox > history > show all history there should be a downloads section, which still contains all those items (you can right-click them to get the original link).

Very helpful thanks..but it only has todays downloads and if I go to import and back up and then restore it says if you restore it will restore previous back. Is this a good thing. I haven't bookmarked anything today. Really appreciated. I contacted support for downloads and they send a link. But would like to know the answer to that.

You can try to restore a previous version of the downloads.sqlite file.
