Firefox Download File Feature Not Working

I just got stuck with a weird issue on Firefox Browser.

Any file I try to download, it just gives me nothing but a blank downloads list !

Tried all these options initially , which is what any one does as the primary troubleshooting steps.

1. Cleared Cache ( everything! )

2. Got latest updates

3. Repaired

4. Checked for virus attacks

5. Cleared all download history etc

All these attempts failed 😦

Finally got it solved by doing these steps 🙂

1. Open Firefox

2. Go to Help -> Troubleshooting Information

3. On the applications basics section, click , ‘Open Containing Folder’.

4. Close Firefox

5. In the containing folder , delete the file  ‘ downloads.sqlite’.

6. Restart Firefox .

Bingo !! Issue solved !
