Download without saving to Temp through downloading


I'd like set firefox to download directly to the file without saving downloaded part to Temp folder.

e.g.: I'm downloading file ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso, firefox makes 2 files in selected download folder ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso and ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso.part. Earlier when firefox downloaded file saved downloaded part to file ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso.part but nowadays it saves downloaded part to some Temp folder on System partition. Thanks for support

Hello, This issue is not happening in latest beta and nightlies, on Windows 7. We have verified that partial files are systematically saved on the same download folder. In case you have issues, create a new profile by reading Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles. Thanks.
