Some application notifications on XFCE are not disapearing

Why the Free Download Manager, and some app, notifications on XFCE will never be disapearing automatically.
How to set it to disappear in a certain timeout seconds by editing its configuration file manually.
What's actually the culprit make it happening ?

An application can override the duration of the notification on the screen. For example:

notify-send -t 0 test test

In this example, we pass notify-send the "-t" parameter (timeout) and set it to 0 meaning it never disappears. This takes precedence over the settings in the notification daemon.

If on Free Download Manager, the notification never expires, it probably means that it is programmed to do so.
