 * The behavior implemented by gDownloadLastDir is documented here.
 * In normal browsing sessions, gDownloadLastDir uses the
 * preference to store the last used download directory. The first time the user
 * switches into the private browsing mode, the last download directory is
 * preserved to the pref value, but if the user switches to another directory
 * during the private browsing mode, that directory is not stored in the pref,
 * and will be merely kept in memory.  When leaving the private browsing mode,
 * this in-memory value will be discarded, and the last download directory
 * will be reverted to the pref value.
 * Both the pref and the in-memory value will be cleared when clearing the
 * browsing history.  This effectively changes the last download directory
 * to the default download directory on each platform.
