gk: I think OP means [application] update history, not [web] download history

Windows:

  • in FF68+, update files and logs are kept in an randomly named folder. The uuid is stored in the pref name on migration, first profile
  • e.g app.update.migrated.updateDir2.6F193CCC56814779 - true
  • e.g files are located in ...\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\6F193CCC56814779
  • the file updates.xml contains the information shown in Options > General >Show Update History
  • It seems to limit itself to the last ten entries: maybe you can change that in the code to zero

Mac, Linux: no idea, sorry

Indeed. And I meant the same. :)
