cannot remove an assigned download from downloads list even though its directory does not exist anymore

I have this download item in my Downloads window. The problem is that it has hung around there without any certain directory anymore. All the options at right-click menu would not take effect--except for 'Open Containing Folder' which is not available. I have a strong confidence that download is registered somewhere in Firefox that might be resolved manually.

You can try to delete the downloads.sqlite file to clear up the download history.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
