Can I prevent auto downloading in temp folders?
What I would like is for downloads to start after I decide where they will go. I do not want a temp part file built in a roaming folder or whatever. I am using windows and this seems to be an issue in all versions. Basically, I would like to pick where my download will be saved, then for firefox to start downloading part file and all. At the very least, I would like to prefigure where this temp file gets stored for security reasons, but being able to send it to a place of my choosing each time would be better.

You can set a specific temp folder via the %TMP% and %TEMP% environment variables.
- Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment variables
- Right-click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Environment variables
You can't prevent Firefox from starting a download immediately.
Thanks Cor-el. That is at least helpful for my purposes.
