I just saw your report - you're just using the ":set" command without
arguments, which opens qute://settings. That's expected to be broken in
v1.5.2 with Qt 5.12 (but like I said, qutebrowser-git has it fixed).

What I meant is using e.g. ":set downloads.remove_finished 3000" instead
of using the webpage.
