While I can remove downloads from the context menu ("Remove"), the keyboard shortcuts for Remove (delete) and Clear (Alt/Option-N) do nothing. Nothing is removed, no menus pop up...it's like I never used the shortcuts at all.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download a file or application
2.When the download completes, single-click and press the delete key OR
3.Use Option-N
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
Completed downloads to be removed or cleared.

Firefox theme: Default

Computer: iMac G5
OS: Mac OS X.4.10 (Tiger)
I can confirm this behavior. I didn't actually realize opt-n was supposed to clear the list, but I can definitely confirm that the delete key (backspace equivalent) doesn't work on Mac. The actual, true delete key works on a full keyboard, however.

Do we want opt-n?  Are there other apps that do this?

As for the delete key, that should be fixed.

I've never head of an app that did it, but it'd be nice if there was a way to clear the list of downloads with a key command. opt-n seems non-standard. I bet we can come up with something better.

agree with comment 2, and blocking on that basis ... can we morph this to get rid of the opt-n part?

The mapping of "backspace" to "delete" on Mac was fixed in bug 394457, although I haven't that slightest about what we want to do with opt-n.  Anyway, this bug should be morphed to cover that case, I'd think?

Bug 394457 adds backspace to delete on mac, and I don't see opt-N doing anything in Safari. Fixed? Invalid?

I haven't heard of opt-N in any standard app, morphing.
