I have the download location set to my NAS drive but it continues to save files to the download folder on my macbook pro instead. Why is this?

Posted

I am running firefox 68.0.2 on a Macbook Pro running Mojave 10.14.6. It seems like it used to work Ok but now when I click to download a file from a webpage, it downloads to the macbook default download folder instead of the downloads folder on my NAS which is what is specified in preferences.
