Question

Cannot make download window clear automatically

Using WIndows 7 Ulitmate and Firefox 17-18 on desktop and laptop, both set up same way. On laptop, cannot make download window stop saving download history; has to be manually cleared. This began at least with v17 or before, and upgrading to v18 didn't change it. Have dechecked "remember browsing & download history" and even that doesn't work. A related issue is that what I really want, which is apparently no longer available in newer versions of Firefox, is to have custom history setting which saves search & form history (until manually cleared), saves browsing history for (xx) days, but does NOT save any download history, particularly in the downloads window. This used to be possible and work fine in previous versions. Now it appears one cannot set the time to save browsing history (either yes or no), and cannot separate browsing history from download history. Seems like the 'upgrades' have actually reduced the options available (Oh, how I miss FF 5-6!)
