I have my downloads list set to clear manually--and always have, but after two days w/ Lion, Safari is no longer respecting that preference. Anything new I download now replaces whatever was previously at the top of the list. However, everything I downloaded in my first two days running Lion remains on the list.

 

Imagine I have a list of five items, with 1 being the most recent, and 5 being the oldest:

 

1. File.doc

2. File.mov

3. File.html

4. File.avi

5. File.flv

 

What's happening is that the first slot (File.doc) is being replaced. So if I download, say, two more files (let's call them File.app and File.ppt, and let's pretend I downloaded them in that order, ie. File.app first), the list would look like this when the downloads were finished:

 

1. File.ppt

2. File.mov

3. File.html

4. File.avi

5. File.flv

 

I had a script running to restore keyboard shortcuts for displayiing the popover, and I thought that might be the culprit, but uninstalling it did nothing. Neither did resetting my preferences, closing and relaunching Safari, restarting my iMac, etc. All the files I've downloaded are still *there*, they just won't stay in the list.


Safari 5.1, Mac OS X (10.7)
