How to change download location from internal to SD card? The "about:config" solution seems not to work.

Hello naj,

Your problem may be that either you're specifying (in "browser.download.dir") a directory that doesn't actually exist on your device, or else it does exist on your device but you're misspelling it somehow. Try these 2 suggestions to see if they help you. 1) Take the directory that you want to use in "browser.download.dir" & try creating it on your device. If you can do that, then you shouldn't need step 2. 2) If step 1 doesn't work, use a test directory, like "/sdcard/Pictures" for example in "browser.download.dir", so that location is almost guaranteed to work. Download something (example = a picture) & use "ES file explorer" to see if it did indeed get downloaded there. If it did, then if you want to use another location, try changing that location (& make sure that your new location either already exists or else create it).
