Why do my saves always go to the "save files to" default folder, even when the "ask you where to save files" is ticked?

In the "Options->General Tab->Files and Applications" I have ticked the "Always ask you where to save files" option. When saving a file, (photos, videos ...), I do get the option of choosing where I would like to save it, but the file always saves to the folder that is defined in the "save files to" option. I am running Fire Fox 61.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 home (64 bit) platform. When I run Fire Fox in "Safe mode", The file(s) save to the folder that I point them to. I only have 8 add-ons, so I disabled all of them while Fire Fox is not running in "safe mode", but the problem continues to occur. I also tried refreshing Fire Fox, but the problem continues. This problem showed up after powering my desktop down at night, and then powering it back the next day. There were no Windows updates. I also ran virus scans with Malwarebytes, and Norton. Both showed that there are no infections.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Cancel this question. I found the cause was that the Ninja download manager had created an add-on, which did not get disabled during my troubleshooting. Thanks.
