Can you please try this in safe mode, to make sure this is not an extenstion problem. (You can load Firefox in safe mode by going to Start->All Programs->Mozilla Firefox->Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode))
Have you tried deleting downloads.rdf in your profile?

- Safemode does note seem to make any difference.

Deleting this file did seem to help!
Will the "clean up" button do the same as deleting it ?
Reporter, do you still see this problem with Firefox 2.0? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Jim, you likely had a problem with a corrupt downloads.rdf file and shouldn't need to remove it any longer. If you can still reproduce this right after removing that file, please comment in this bug with full details.
