When I find a suitable picture to use as wallpaper" I often right click and use the menu item "Set as Desktop Background". The file ""example.jpg" is saved in directory\folder "/home/user" rather than for example "/home/user/my wallpaper" or in the directory

 "/home/user/Downloads".  The latter as being set under the  "Downloads" section on the "General" tab in the "Preferences" dialog box.

Is there a configuration file where I can change the default location to save my "Set as Desktop Background" images. Or better still can the menu be customized to launch the application that allows me to set my desktop wallpapers?

I am using the "PCLinuxOS" Linux OS but I have encountered this issue in many if not all the Linux distributions I have sampled.

Firefox probably saves the wallpaper in the base folder of the Firefox profiles: /home/user/.mozilla/firefox

You can't change that location.

Don't use "Set as Desktop". Use "Save Image As..." instead, and file it with your other "wallpaper" images so the operating system has access to those images.

IIRC, Firefox saves a "desktop image" to the Profile folder, and it will only save one image, at that. Change the image and the previous one is gone.
