For several weeks, files downloaded during my browser session were automatically deleted when I exited Firefox. The problem may have been limited to html pages downloaded using "Save Page As...", but could have been regular downloaded files as well, but I didn't notice.
I believe that I was running 64.x (sorry I don't remember the dot release number).
I think I narrowed it down to the configuration option, "[ x ] Browsing & Download History" under Privacy & Security, Settings for Clearing History. I have always had this box checked, and downloads never disappeared before, just as the option description implies.
Then, a Firefox pop-up jumped in my face and told me to upgrade to 65.0, which I did.
Now my downloads don't seem to be deleted any more.
HOWEVER, I looked at the list of fixes for version 65.0, and saw NO MENTION of this problem, so I am asking you to confirm whether or not this was a known problem that was fixed in version 65.0, or if you think I am experiencing an intermittent problem that may return to haunt me when conditions are right.
Thanks in advance.
