Windows 7: Limiting which programs add to the Recent Items list

Limiting which programs add to the Recent Items list

I've noted that Firefox has an about:config (browser.download.manager.addToRecentDocs) setting that is supposed to make it not put the downloads into the Recent Items list (I dislike how downloads clog it up). However, it doesn't work.

If I open the download, then it won't show up but that's a poor workaround.

The question is if there's a per-program method to determine what will go into the Recent Items list or am I up the creek without a paddle?
