Description

In the past, when I downloaded something with TBB, it would vanish from the download manager when it was finished.

Now it doesn't, and I have to clear the box manually.

Is this a new feature, or a regression?

The download manager is memory only via https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/blob/maint-2.4:/src/current-patches/firefox/0013-Make-Download-manager-memory-only.patch.

I guess we should clear the download window on New Identity. I'm surprised it's not cleared by the private browsing session clearing event, though... Not sure what to tag this as (tbb-local-evesedropper?), actually. This means it will probably be forgotten until the next triage :/.

The download manager entries now persist until "New identity" is clicked. Not sure when this changed.
