Firefox 20.0.1 - "Always ask where to save files" option does not start from "Downloads" folder anymore.
Firefox 20.0.1 on WinXP SP3.
Previously, when I selected "Always ask where to save files" Firefox would start from the default Downloads folder - there I had shortcuts to the locations that I usually save to.
Now Firefox insists on starting from the root of C: - and I don't know how to change this behavior.
I'd want it to start from the default Download folder as it used to. It is the location where I had these shortcuts and I do NOT wish to place these shortcuts in the root of C: .

Hello Jerryteacup, see : Startup, home page and download settings - Downloads to change that behavior.
Sorry. Does not fix the problem.
It keeps on insisting to save to C: even if I set the download folder to D: .
go to about:config find (or copied/paste form here) the browser.download.folderList right-click on it, select modify, and change the value to 2 . Exit firefox, restart-it and check it again.
A-HA! It appears to have fixed it. Thank you.
