All the while I thought Firefox has a bug that doesn’t allow user to save file to a specify folder when we download a file from internet. It always forces us to save the file the default folder (e.g. My Download). So I ignored it at the first place and waited for the fix with the later releases but I was wrong. It is not a bug, it is the Firefox default setting. When you click “Save File” it automatically save it the default download folder.
This is the default behavior – save file to default folder (I’m not sure why this is default but I don’t think it is really convenient). So what I did is I manually move the file in the download folder (default folder) to the specify folder where I want to save the file to. This is really stupid for what I did. Anyway you don’t need to.
If you want Firefox to save your file in a folder that you want, perform the following instructions:
- Click Tools menu -> Options. The Options dialog box appears.
- Under the Download, select “Ask me where to save files”.
- Click OK.
From now on, Firefox will ask you where you want to save your file every time you download a file. I no longer need to manually copy files to the folder I want to save to.
