Disabling download history
To disable the download history in Firefox:
- Firefox 2 and above: Click "Tools -> Options -> Privacy / History" and uncheck "Remember what I've downloaded". (As an alternative, under "Privacy / Private Data" select "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox", then click the "Settings..." button and select "Download History" in the "Clear Private Data" window.)
- Firefox 1.5: Click "Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Download History" and select either "Upon successful download" or "When Firefox exits" from the "Remove files from the Download Manager" drop-down list.
To disable download logging in Mozilla Suite:
- Close the application
- Delete the contents of downloads.rdf in your profile folder
- Change the permissions on downloads.rdf to make it a read-only file.
