Good day

Even though my settings is set for "always ask ..", in the latest Firefox versions all files are automatically saved to "Downloads" on my hard drive. Could you please rectify this error?

What are your settings in the next section headed Applications? Mozilla may have changed Always ask to Save so you need to change the settings back to what you want. If you want to choose where to save each download, change this preference in about:config to false. browser.download.useDownloadDir
