Re: how to change the download folder?

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?
