Browser download directory question


So i have a file i wish to download 3.1 gigs. I don't have enough space on my internal storage to download it. How can i change the download directory? I have been tinkering with about:config. I have changed "browser.download.dir" to "/sdcard/" and changed "browser.download.useDownloadDir" to true and false.. no matter what i do it keeps downloading the file to the default location. Is there something i am missing? If this isn't possible is there some work around? please help! thanks.

Nuwon that answer is for Firefox desktop. It does not apply to Firefox for Android.

Firefox for Android should be downloading to the sdcard by default. What device/Android version?
