How can I get Firefox to save what folder I last uploaded from?

I recently updated to FF 5.0.1 from some antiquated version of FF 3. I have set the download destination so that it always saves to the folder of my choosing, but it does not seem to remember the folder I last uploaded from. For example, say I wanted to find an image, save it, and then upload it somewhere (a common occurrence for image macros on chan boards). With the previous version of Firefox, I could save to something like C://User/Pictures and then click "browse" to chose the image I just saved from another site. It would then open up C://User/Picutres and I could click on my desired image.

Now any time I restart Firefox the default upload source is the desktop. Previously Firefox would have saved information and would by default open up whatever folder I last saved to (or uploaded from if that was the last action). So if I downloaded to C://UserABC/Pictures/FunnyPics then Firefox would open C://UserABC/Pictures/FunnyPics for uploading. Now it goes straight to C://Users/UserABC/Desktop.

This makes it a real pain to navigate BACK to the folder I do most of my uploading from every time I restart Firefox. How can I set it up so Firefox will once again open up my last saved-to or uploaded-from folder as it did before?
