This issue has persisted for quite some time. It's very annoying. When I click on a file to download it from the internet, the download window opens. I see the progress of the download as well as the little 'x' icon to cancel and the 'magnifying glass' to find where the download is going. So far so good. Immediately when the file completes the contents of the window clear out. At which point I have to manually find the download through the Finder. I've changed the option to delete the contents of the window "manually". That didn't solve the problem. Thoughts?
