On Mac OSX, Firefox partial download files (.part) are remaining in my downloads folder, even when the download completes successfully.

Starting about a month ago, when downloading files using Firefox on my Mac (OSX 10.6.4, FF 3.6.12 currently), my downloads folder is showing .part files for successfully downloaded files. They cannot be deleted, and only show up in Downloads "stack". In Finder, the Downloads folder show no evidence of the .part files. I cannot delete the .part files either. Only a reboot seems to clear the problem.

It is as if the .part files aren't actually there, even though they are being displayed in the Downloads stack.
