Clean downloads button not working if you got private navigation enabled
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0 Build ID: 20130215130331 Steps to reproduce: Download some files Actual results: While trying to clean them (having private navigation enabled) button is disabled. Only works with private navigation disabled Expected results: Download list should have been cleaned
I just had two users independently pop by #firefox.de on MozNet and request help with this, within 10min of each other. Both confirm, that they are in private browsing mode. At such a rate I believe this problem to be possibly very wide spread. (Going into safe mode doesn't seem to help. Tried that with one of them.)
Component: Downloads Panel → Download Manager
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Is this a regression from previous version? Since I think other clear utilities like Clear recent History are disabled while in private browsing mode.
One of the users indicated that going back to Fx18 'fixed it'. Which would indeed indicate a regression? Ofc could be that there is some specific beaviour change in Fx19 that is intended but not fully working?
The per window private browsing stuff started in 19 so it's possible it regressed, but must be verified with proper testing on both 18 and 19 to confirm different behavior.
I had one of my machines still on 18.0.2 (linux x86_64) so I tried before upgrading. Fx18: "Clear list" works Fx19: "Clear list" doesn't work. Button is active and becomes greyed out after the first click. (manually selecting the download item and pressing delete on the keyboard still works)
Ok, thanks for the check, setting as a regression.
I tried with mozregression (2012-08 -> 2013-01 builds) but I'm not able to reproduce the issue in PB mode. "Clear downloads" is not grayed out and clears the downloads list as espected. Please, reporters, could you test: 1) In safe mode: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode 2) With a new profile (dont import anything): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
Yes, as expected reproducible both in safe mode and with a pristine, newly created profile. As long as in Private Browsing mode ofc. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0

Thank you for the range! What do you mean by "Download stop to work", the download manager stopped working, or just the Clear Downloads button?

Download stops with 0% progress, no download file is created. And Clear Button is staying gray.
This is almost certainly caused by the statement that's bound to the public DB connection: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/toolkit/mozapps/downloads/content/downloads.js#1356 That being said, I don't know if it's worth preparing a fix. This doesn't seem like something we would chemspill over, and we're switching to the download panel in FF 20.

I think we should just fix this for other toolkit consumers, though there should be no need to rush a fix in 19 considered other UIs (like Clear Recent History) have the same "bug" from a long time.
Not critical enough to track for FF19, and sounds like it'll be resolved in FF20.
