Hi, make sure the download location in Firefox has been set: 3-bar menu > Options > General > Files and Applications (Downloads).

If you let the Browser and Windows choose the location it can be in 30 different places depending on what location was saved before you did current actions. I have no issue where to save it but if everytime you choose different locations it will go to the last command issued. Computers only do what the user ask of it not the other way around it. There are defaults settings and those use the O/S default to save.
