TIP: When changing your default download directory, if your default file-manager displays only a short-version? incomplete, not from-the-root whole, location?

...however, one annoying hurdle or trip-up,.. to less-savvy users, is that they could get that far, decide to do the steps, but then when trying to get the off-the-drive's-root-dir,.. full, every-directory, full, location,..
. *bangs head on keyboard*
is that they can sometimes only see a limited location, when your android's storage is partially kept segregated, and only a SHORTENED, location, is shown, essentially, you SEE one of the subdirectories, AS, the root.
if it was the 1st subdirectory, that would have the same effect, no problem, but sometimes its the 3rd, the 7th,.. and that,.. = a problem.
so for EXAMPLE;
say a full address might be ;
a shortened version of that, might appear on screen as STARTING, at backups,.. ( 3rd )
and what you would SEE, when you try to copy it, is
. "backups/15/2" and not
then! take a guess what happens,
you type what you SEE,.. in,
but it doesn't work.
OK - now the TIP
if you cannot work out the WHOLE directory-location, simply try getting a PROPERTIES PAGE for the directory you want, with a file-manager.
they should display a complete full-version of the directory's ACTUAL location, on your device's drive.
that's what you need, not just typing in "downloads" or "dcim" or "music" etc.
even if you are typing in multiple, it could still be, that there's hidden ones BEFORE the ones you've been able to cut&paste visually.
Doing it this way, is easy, since using a default file-manager, requires no research into apps,.. & a download,.. & learning how to use it ... etc
often simply a long-press with your finger, with a drop-down box, or selecting the directory, and then the button for extra functions of your file-manager, like cut, paste, etc, is enough to get a properties page,
or if there's a second button? for functions like export-to, print, send-in-an-sms, add-to-a-zipfile... stuff like that.
MOST if not all, file-managers, should have a properties-page display FOR files&directories, somewhere. if your file-manager does not, install a freeware one that does.

As I use FF on my laptop, tablet, and Desktop as well I hope the problem on the mobile can be fixed.
