Firefox by default downloads all the files to the desktop. But a few like me love to keep their desktop clean and even few others are organized and love to download all their files to download folder or other folders in some personal drive.
So how to change the download location in Firefox 3?
Go to Tools -> Options.
Under Downloads section, click Browse to change the default download location.
But if you want to decide where to save the download each time, then choose the option ‘Always ask me where to save files’.
If you don’t want Firefox to remember what you have downloaded, go to Privacy tab in the options. Under the History section, uncheck Remember what I’ve downloaded.
If you want Firefox to clear the details of download each time you close the application, check Always clear my private data when I close Firefox under Private data. This will clear all the private details like browsing history, saver forms, search history etc. If you don’t want to delete your browsing history and others, click Settings under Private data and uncheck the features you don’t want to delete.
