Unfortunately this solution does not work. First of all, browser.download.lastDir doesn't exist on Fx Android, and even if you create it, it seems it's ignored.

Type about:config (go to this address) and go past the prompt, change the value of browser.download.lastDir to your download location.

i've typed about:config but i could not go past. so i couldn't change the value. there is only add a new settinf tab in this page. should it be a string or an integer or boolean setting?
