:-)) Nice ;) Another detailed workaround: 0. Download a file 1. Open downloads panel: Press Ctrl+J 2. Reach out for the mouse or trackpad 3. Search mouse pointer on screen 4. Move the mouse pointer to [Clear Downloads] button 5. Click left mouse button 6. Release mouse
@ Axel: This is accessibility bug. It means that "Clear Downloads" functionality should be accessible via keyboard (for people who don't/can't use mouse). I know it's possible to control mouse pointer with keyboard (Alt+Shift+NumLock on Windows), but that is really undesired option. Comment 2 is better IMO
OK, I understand now. I believed you were cracking a joke, because taking these many steps to reach the button sounded quite hilarious to me. But yes, that workaround is a feasible path to reach the goal, of course.
