File Download: choosing file name and target folder does not work

I use FF 66.0.2 on Linux Mint 18.2

When I download a file, FF should always ask me where to save it (I made this setting in the preferences). However, this doesn’t work. FF asks me to specify a folder, and I do, but FF ignores my choice. The file always goes to the ~/Downloads folder, and the filename is always "download" (with no extension).

Of course I can rename the file and move it to the folder I want, but is there a way to fix this?


thank you
