How do I change the pre-filled file location when I choose Save As?
16 September 2013 Using Windows 7 Home Edition and Firefox 24.0
I always want Firefox to offer a location when I download stuff. At the moment it fills the Save As file location with a location I never use and it is the same one every time, and I don't know how to stop this from happening. How can I teach Firefox to fill the Save As location with another file location, for example Desktop?
NB This is absolutely not about setting the default under
Tools/Options/General/Downloads/Save Files To...
although everyone automatically assumes it is.
Background: After using Firefox for a few months on my Windows 7 machine, I then imported old Firefox settings from a VISTA machine.
You may want to reset the prefs file, it should show the last place you saved a page from.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Well I never! Live and learn!
Thanks. Peace of cake.
Solution 2 was the choice.
Now just need to re-apply my desired preferences.
