Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:21.0) Gecko/20130218 Firefox/21.0
Build ID: 20130218031106

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox
2. Navigate to and download the latest Firefox version
3. Open the Panel -> right click on the download in progress -> select Pause.
4. In the Panel -> right click again on the paused download
5. Open the Downloads View -> right click on the paused download and look over the options from the context menu

Expected results:
The options from the context menu are the same in the panel and in the downloads view:
Remove From History
Open Containing Folder
Go to Download Page
Copy Download Link
Clear List/Clear Downloads

Actual results:
In the Downloads View - Remove from History option is missing when the download is paused.
- reproducible on the latest Nightly
- reproducible on the latest Aurora:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:20.0) Gecko/20130218 Firefox/20.0 (20130218042018)
- issue is reproducible ever since December 18th:
the problem looks like being the fact the panel uses downloadRemoveFromListMenuItem class while the rule is on downloadRemoveFromHistoryMenuItem

So the Library seems to be right.

Approving as this is low risk. We may back out if need be in case of any new regressions this may cause on beta.

Verified the fix on Firefox 20.0 beta 2: "Remove from History" option is not available in the Downloads Panel nor in the Downloads View in the Library window.
Verified as fixed on Windows 7 64bit, Ubuntu 12.10 32bit and Mac OSX 10.7.5 with Firefox 21 beta 3 (20130416200523).
