To set the default download location, click on orange Firefox button on the top left > options > options > General tab and then click on browse inside the Downloads box to select the location you want your downloads to be saved in.

I do not have an option "OPTIONS" when I right or left click on the Orange ball in the Far-Upper Left corner. I have "Restore, Minimize or Close" as options.

I have spent a lot of time looking through anything related to "Settings, Preferences or the Such" throughout the package. It by default is dropping everything in my "Downloads" folder on my C: Drive which I only use for operating system(s).

Thanks, That was where I missed the option before. I could have swore I searched in that area a couple of times before. I guess I gotta go back to drinking again :)

Thanks again!

With the new Download Manager there are now fewer download options available, so it is easy to miss that section.
