The one that works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Only one that worked and cleaned my Firefox downloads on the Beta version. There is a short delay before the file is erased allowing the user to open the file.

Not working on v31. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have to set to clean instantly. At first, I thought maybe it had something to do with the DownloadsWindow add-on, but even with it removed and using FF's default (and horrible) Library view instead, when downloads finish, they just stay there as normal, and I have to manually clear them out.

Hi, I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems. Could you please contact me with details about your browser and add-on configurations?

Finally fixes my download history OCD! Works fine on Linux (Fedora 20) with Firefox 30.

Doesn't work on FF30 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Clear downloads instantly doesn't work on FF30

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0.1-signed). 

I can’t reproduce your problem, could you please contact me with further details? Please include what operating system you’re using and, if possible, provide a screenshot of the add-on’s settings.

I tried on Windows 8.1 and OS X, both with new and existing browser profiles and everything is working the way it should.

Seems to work fine on FF29. Does not revert the green arrow to grey, but at least there's a reminder there were downloads while actually clearing download history. Works with canceled downloads, too.

Doesn't work in FF26 :( .
It is more than necessary in FF26 than ever because up to 25 we could use the old toolkitUI. Now the last finished downloads always show up in download panel unless I restart the browser :(. Very bad download experience :( !

I am using "browser.download.useToolkitUI" for the old download manager (as I hate the new one) and I can say this addon works perfectly with it to automatically delete the Download History as you go. A shame a third party addon is needed to do what Firefox should be doing.

This can be fixed for later versions of Firefox by changing (this will probably lose formatting):
if (browserHistory.isVisited(download.source))

to:
Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/history;1"].getService(Ci.mozIAsyncHistory).isURIVisited(download.source, function(uri, visited) {
if (visited)

and after the "else" statement in that block of code, add:
});

It shows up two times.

This extension works well in Firefox 20, but I am very sad that it had to exist at all. Mozilla has really screwed up Firefox in recent versions, to the point where anything after FF11 is incredibly frustrating.

I encourage everyone to read my comments on the following thread and contact Mozilla about this issue yourself: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/956553

At Least Partly Working in 20.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems to be working for me in 20.0 when I exit and restart Firefox. I selected both the clear downloads instantly and on exit options. The instant clearing did not seem to work though.

Love the idea of this extension. Hope it can be made to fully work.

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as expected.

Download and browsing history should be two separate items by default, especially since I've set Firefox to clear downloads.

Thanks sincerely for developing this.

Is it even tested? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hello all,
add-on isn't working on Firefox 17.
It even silently disabled my browsing history. LOL.
I know - i didn't read description...
We should consider renaming this History cleaner or something else, as current title don't do what it should.

Nevertheless, I even can't clean my download history.
I wish I didn't finf this addon in the first place.

Thanks for reading.

I'm sorry you're having problems, but I cannot reproduce them. Please bear in mind that Firefox 17 is still beta software. Nevertheless, the addon works as advertised with Firefox 17 Beta 6.

Works (for now?) as of Oct 07 2012 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No complaints at all, I tried to clear out my DL history, no problem and Browser hist was left untouched
3 options; Clear DLs instantly, - on exit or - on demand
Let's hope FF doesn't F this one up again

Would be a great addon if it worked as it should. I hope this addon will be updated soon.

Well . . 2 (two) little stars for effort!

It works "sometimes" and sometimes it doesn't. It also seemed to slow things down a little to.

Not working in my 15.0.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I wish it did because I'm another who hates that we can no longer set FF to not retain download history without also giving up browsing history. I hope this extension gets updated to work again soon.

Erst durch dieses Add-On wurde ich überhaupt darauf aufmerksam das Firefox sich jetzt auch als Datenspion betätigt und die Download-Historie getrennt unter den Lesezeichen abspeichert. Was sich die Firefox-Macher dabei gedacht haben ist mir ein absolutes Rätsel!

Dieses Add-On ist spitze. Warum vergebe ich aber nur 4 statt 5 Sterne? Aus folgendem Grund:

Wenn man das Add-On installiert, ist als Standardeinstellung vorgegeben: "Downloads nicht merken". Hat man aber schon was in der Download-Liste drin, wird diese durch das Installieren des Addons nicht gelöscht. Man muss erst einmalig die Option: "Beim Schliesen löschen" aktivieren, damit eine vorhandene Historie auch den Weg ins Nirwana antritt.

Ich würde mir wünschen, dass die vorhandene Liste bereits beim Installieren des Addons gelöscht wird.
