'Firefox Downloads window' blank in FF19 & FF20 in Private browsing

Posted

Hi I have upgraded the ff18 to Ver 19 a few days ago and came across this issue/ bug. I have again gone to the beta ver20 as well and it still persists.

Whenever I try to download something in the private browsing mode, none of the downloads (download progress) are shown in the download window I.e. things like 'the % downloaded' and the 'speed' etc even though I know the download is taking place. This was very useful in the old versions of FF.

Any suggestions other than going back to ver18?
