How to change the default folder for "Save Image As"

I have the following config options set: browser.download.lastDir C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite false

Two days ago when I tried to "save image as" while in a Firefox tab it defaulted to C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop. That's great, as that IS the default I want. It no longer does that. I don't know what changed. It now defaults to "This PC" and I have to change the folder by selecting C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop from the drop down list of folders. This has happened over and over and I don't know what is controlling this. In the past something would happen to change it back to my desktop. How do I permanently change "Save Image As" default folder to my desktop while other file downloads go to my "Downloads directory?"
