Description

Maybe it's a good idea to clear Thunderbird's download history (ctrl + j) at closing.

Seems like browser.download.manager.retention 1 has had no function for years.

Interesting so there seems to be no way to do it from the preferences.

Maybe someone could file a new report and see if one of the Thunderbird developers is willing to bring that function back. Last time (looking at the bug reports) they refused because no-one presented them a 'valid' use case. If someone knows a good use case, they may change their mind.

But to me that looks like something that should be solved in thunderbird.
