Re: Firefox

But my reading of that is that it nukes both the downloads list (what we used to get to with Ctrl-J), as well as the browsing history list (Ctrl-H). Whereas in days of olde, there was a setting to only clear the Downloads list on exit, without touching the browsing history itself. Kinda like clicking the "clear downloads" button when looking at the Ctrl-J Downloads list, but doing it automagically when Firefox is closing. For whatever reason, Mozilla planted their flag in the sand and said those two couldn't be cleared separately during shutdown, although it's perfectly possible to do it manually before then.
