I have a problem with opening files: Mozilla keeps saving them and ignores temp folder. I tried to modify browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel in about:config, but nothing happened. Can anybody help me?

Chosen solution

You shouldn't modify browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel, but Firefox 102 has a different pref that you can look at. Selecting this feature is not yet possible in 102 via the user interface.

Hi

I do not recommend looking in about:config for this. The download behaviour was changed in Firefox 98. You can learn more about this at:
