CCleaner query

Twice recently I have unchecked 'History' and Last download location' only to find that

after the clean my downloads have vanished from FF>Tools>Downloads.

Is this normal?

I have always been able to retain d/loads before.

I have version v4.01.4093 of CCleaner. I do not have an option in Tools for Downloads; the Uninstall button lists installed programmes, Start up - if you want to change start programmes, File Finder, System restore and Drive wiper. My downloads (as opposed to actual installed programmes) are, by default, in C:\Users\username\downloads. Where is you default download location? Do you, as I do, download first - not "Run" a downloaded programme. I do a virus an malware scan before installing.

My version was older than yours, but now have 4.02.4115.

Apologies for not explaining fully.

In the opening window with all the check boxes I uncheck 'History' and 'Last

Download Location' and previously the last downloads were still showing in

FF/Tools/Downloads', but no longer.

I can find them in 'C'.

Just a bit strange.

None of the many versions of CCleaner I have used ever had any of the two options you referred to selected by default ? as far as I know the only browser specific setting are on the Applications tab in the CCleaner window ,I am not certain where it is but there is a return to default settings somewhere ?

Cheers HC

The item you're referring to is intended for Internet Explorer. You need to untick Download History under Firefox, found after clicking the Applications tab.
