The ongoing downloads cue will not close now

Making moves

The ongoing downloads button now opens to display all recent downloads in a pop up window anchored to the button on the toolbar. Unfortunately it does not CLOSE anymore until you click somewhere else and often plops right over the main workspace taking up a large amount of real estate where you can easily click on a download by accident as you are navigating the rest of the UI which can result in running or installing something by accident possibly something malicious. Please revert this to closing/disappearing automatically after a second of displaying ONE download or at least giving us an option to change it back to this.

In latest version 98.0, resets to true when I set it to false via about:config. It does this after the next download as well as after a restart absent an intervening download.

Please make the old behavior the default behavior again.
