Firefox 22 update cleared my Download Manager Tweak history

Apparently, I made the mistake of updating Firefox 18 to Firefox 22, and I use the Download Manager Tweak add-on so I can easily see my list of recent downloads, etc.etc. Updating to Firefox 22 cleared the history of the Download Manager Tweak. While the history of all downloads (even ones I cleared from the Tweak window) is there in the History >Show All History >Downloads, it didn't keep the list I had in the add-on.

These 2 lists are different. I wanted to keep the one in the add-on. Running Windows XP, btw.

On the page for the add-on, the developer explains changes made to version 0.9.8 of that add-on to address that issue. What version do you have?

You can try the support site or send and e-mail to the developer to see if you can get assistance in retrieving that history. The links for both are on the right of the above page for that add-on.

I have Ver. 0.9.8 of that add-on, and the about:config flag was set to False as the developer says to have it. Official page says versions of Firefox 3 to 21, so this appears to be a problem with V.22.

The developer obviously did not change the Mozilla Add-ons page; it says "Works with Firefox 3.0 and later" under Version Information.

Per the page on http://dmextension.mozdev.org/ , you will need to contact the developer in the forum at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=1086555 to inquire about the Firefox version compatibility and retrieving/saving/protecting your history for the add-on if that is possible.
