Can't delete embarrassing item from download dialog box
I have an embarrassing porn download title in my Download box. I clicked the button to clear the whole box but this one just wonlt go.
The download details box says 'starting' but it never would start to download and the small blue button to cancel the download won't work.
I used Firefox as my browser and the laptop uses MS Vista Home Premium.
Can anyone suggest what to do to get rid of it? Anyone using my laptop to download something will see the url if they download something.
Would be really grateful to sort this.

Re: Can't delete embarrassing item from download dialog box
It could be that the torrent is still "active" in your torrent file. Open whatever you use to download torrents, and click on it if it's still there. Stop it, and then delete it. Then you should be able to clear your downloads listings from your browser.
I'm guessing your torrent software is still considering it "in use" / open/active.
