    I am running 1.4, but it has happened with previous releases, also.

    For the past few weeks, my computer was running progressively slower and
    slower. (I mean, not just anything Mozilla-related. It was as if my
    computer had arthritis or something, and it was getting worse by the
    day.) I could not find any reason for this. I checked the Download
    Manager, and the downloads.rdf file had grown to 1.5M. When I removed
    all entries from the list, my computer was running its normal,
    satisfying speed.

    I have "Don't open anything" checked in Prefs, but this obviously does
    not address turning off the collecting of entries entirely. What
    gives? Why in the world should this slow down my computer anyway?
