I was downloading a file and I believe I attempted to pause the file right at the moment when the download completed. The file opened but it remained in the download manager labeled as "paused". Now I am completely unable to remove the file from my download manager. "Resume" does nothing; "cancel" does nothing; "clear link" does nothing. I went so far as to delete my browsing and download history, but the link is still there.

It seems like it would be difficult to reproduce the problem, since I paused at the exact moment the file completed. Honestly, it's not a serious problem, but I'd really like to get that stupid file out of my download manager - with the Download Statusbar extension, it's sitting right there mocking me all the time and I'm sick of it. If there's a straightforward fix or workaround for this problem I'd love to hear it.

Reproducible: Didn't try




I am using the "Download Statusbar" extension v0.9.7.2. Disabling the extension does not help. Starting in safe mode does not help. I cannot remove the file from either the Download Statusbar extension or the Download Manager.
