I am using Ubuntu.

I have just cleared all history in firefox. I ticket most the boxes for the types of stuff to clear.

As I did this firefox deleted a week's worth of saved and completed downloads from my downloads folder.

How the hell has this just happened and how do I get my files back?

Screen shot of your setting there? I have Win and never had that issue with FF doing that. Are you sure on the settings?

That is because downloads are considered as history, so be cautious with clearing history. Since there is no backup of the history, you can't recover from this unless you have a backup of places.sqlite (bookmarks and history).


Firefox manages downloads in the Downloads folder in the Library (History -> Show All History)

  • downloads are treated as history items: clearing history removes included download items and vice versa.
  • the Download button gets a blue highlight once all downloads are finished to make you aware that new downloads are available.
  • features like Pause and Resume are available if you right-click an item

Firefox 57+ auto-hides the download button on the Navigation Toolbar by default. You can open the customize window and click the download icon to toggle the auto-hide setting.

That is very unintuitive, even to an IT worker. This is a bad design and needs to be changed.

Also it is possible to get deleted files back using a Linux command line utility called extundelete (at least for ext4 filesystems anyway... )
