Is it possible to have firefox to clear the download history while I am still in firefox? I don't want to press the 'Clear list' button every time I complete a download, and I don't want to have to quit firefox in order for it to erase the download history. Thanks!

try setting browser.download.manager.retention to 0

http://kb.mozillazine.org/about:config_entries
browser.download.manager.retention
When to remove downloaded files' entries from the Download Manager
0: Upon successful download
1: When the browser exits
2 (default): Manually
(*.mozillaZine.org is not Mozilla!)
The Complaint Department at Mozilla (current complaints) (<It is not a real complaint site but for jokes/testing of bugzilla).
The Complaint department link is borked until unknown time.
