I have experienced with a specific website where downloading images always prompts the save to the Downloads folder instead of staying in the folder where i need to set the downloads for.

meaning: a set of images when clicking on save, then selecting the destination folder and saving, works ok. But upon saving the next image from the gallery returns to the downloads folder.

Trying this from any other website, the last folder where the last image was saved is the one where the new image will be saved.

If from the website where im having this issue, i right-click then click on the image and select "view image" and click save, the browser.download.lastdir does work and the previously used folder shows up as the destination for download.

On the General page of Options, under the heading Downloads, there is an option "Always ask you where to save file".

thanks for the answer but that is not the issue, I always get prompted to where i need to save, when selecting the destination/location is the issue.

the last used location is not working for a specific website/gallery.

to add to my note, I've checked the about:config, using the config browser.download.lastDir and it is stating the last used directory. but it doesn't work on the website when downloading
