umask wrong, when downloading something firefox sets own umask instead of umask from directory. This wasn't so before today (I think)

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?
