The Download Manager in Firefox shows the most recently downloaded files. This preference determined how many days’ worth of download history to display.
Possible values and their effects
A non-negative integer, specifying the number of days of download history to display. Default is 7.
- This preference only alters the displayed history, not the recorded history. Reducing this preference’s value will not remove download history entries.
