Download from email
I have my browser settings under "Downloads" with the box checked "always ask where to save file", but the browser seems to ignore that command, and just downloads any email to the default folder that I entered above for file destination.
I have tried to fix this multiple times.

The outdated information you may have seen posted by Dropa mentioning the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel Preference will NOT work as it was for Fx 98.0 to 101.0. The Preference for Fx 102.0 to current is browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir
Please be careful with all about:config changes. Please read Firefox advanced customization and configuration options and Configuration Editor for Firefox to learn more.

Changing the preference mentioned in this quotation from searchfox. org to false will enable you to choose the destination of a downloaded file.
browser.download.useDownloadDir - bool True - Save files directly to the folder configured via the browser.download.folderList preference. False - Always ask the user where to save a file and default to browser.download.lastDir [not a preference] when displaying a folder picker dialog
