The Downloads Clear List Button Not Working In Firefox 19.0

Hello,

After upgrading Firefox to version 19.0 today, I noticed that the Downloads Clear List Button does not work & is always grayed/greyed out, and so you can not clear all downloads; and so you have to remove them each one-at-a-time.

I did not have this problem until upgrading to version 19.0

Hey goodjohnjr,

I've just confirmed that it works on Mac OSX with FF 19. So it is either specific to windows or more likely related to an outside influence like an addon. Have you tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode to see if you still have the same trouble?

Let me know if that works.

Thank you for responding Matt G,

I tried Firefox in Safe Mode, but the problem is still there.

I am going to try to: Reset Firefox to its default state.

I will let you know what happens.

I seemed to have found the problem, whenever Always Use Private Browsing Mode is selected, this problem happens; I have used this mode for years without this problem until version 19.0.

Should this be filed as a bug report on Bugzilla?

If so, are there any experienced users out there willing to help with this?

Thank you, -John Jr

In PB mode there isn't any data stored to disk and the download history is cleared when you leave PB mode or close Firefox.

Hello Cor-El, thank you for responding, but I know that; but I would like to be able to clear all downloads like I used to be able to, until version 19.0.

This occurred as soon as I updated to Firefox 19.0. I've disabled all add-ons and it makes no difference. The clear button is still greyed out. Hope this can be resolved since I use the clear function all the time.
