Can't choose destination for downloads in firefox preferences; nothing downloads.
iMac OSX 10.6.8 Whenever I try to download an app, although a window appears to save 'binary file' nothing downloads. The Firefox preferences doesn't give the option of choosing a location to save downloaded files, even when clicking 'browse.'
