Downloading a file in gmail will automatically get saved in downloads instead of specified location

In Firefox I set my download settings to "Always ask you where to save file", and for most of the websites that still works. Unfortunately, since a recent update, gmail does not do that anymore. It gets immediately saved in my downloads folder without any prompt of where to save it. Any solution how to fix this? Thanks!

If you can't find an answer there, try changing this preference in about:config to false. That will allow you to choose the destination folder. browser.download.useDownloadDir
