Hello

since version 119 of Firefox a download behaves siometimes different. The directory and "Ask before save" are still valid. But sometimes Firefox start to save in the directory without asking. Why behaves version 119 sometimes different in comparison with previous versions like 118?

Kind regards

 Stephan Albert

Check the save action for each of the individual file types and for "other files" below that in settings.

Firefox always immediately starts downloading in the background to the default download folder or OS Temp folder and doesn't wait for you to specify name and location. For short files this might be the default location as previously used to download a file from this website.
