where do downloads go (what files what is it called?)


I did not realise that by clicking an item it dwnlded to me a file. I did not want that. I assumed it was zipped. I want to remove it, where does firefox put it. I can see dwnload managers prompt that it downloaded. I closed it (darn) how do I find it again and remove it? It was in Private mode when I was on line so there is no history., but in general where do files go?
