When saving a file (download) in the download directory witch has username x and group y set with stickybits on (ubuntu 13.04) firefox saves the file with user and groupname x and permisions 0600. I have a program looking automatically for files in my download folder and it does that with the group permissions (y). Before today that always worked but now something changed... update?... If I create a file myself in the Download directory it takes the x/y user/group and 664 rights (umask 0002). What changed in firefox that it doesn'r respect the umask of the folder anymore?

hello skaynl, please try to upgrade to firefox 25 which got released today and should contain a fix for this issue. thank you!
Thanks for the fix in the new version!!! Ubuntu 13.10 posted the update today (October 30, 2013)too so I didn't have to search for how to add a a source or anything. Just ran all updates and Firefox version 25 is now installed and the saved files have the right access permissions.
This problem is back in version 26!
