Clear Your Firefox Downloads List

Friday, December 3rd, 2010 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

If you’re anything like me, you have quite a few files you’ve downloaded via Firefox. How do I know this? Well, on my computer all I have to do is open up Firefox and click Tools>Downloads and this window pops up.


It looks pretty cluttered – and in need of a good clear-out, but I’d still like to keep a few select files listed here, just in case I need to find them at a later date.

So, to delete singular downloads from your Firefox queue, simply right-click the download you’d like to delete from the list and select Remove From List.


It’s that easy!

Remember, you can also clear the entire list by clicking the Clear List button at the bottom of the download window, too.


Note: This doesn’t delete the physical file from your computer; just the listing in the Firefox downloads window.
