    Edit > Preferences > Browser > Downloads >> When saving a File ... And choose where you want to save the downloads

Thank you. I have that set to send the downloads to my Briefcase and the downloads were going to my Briefcase until I downloaded the new 2.49.1 version and now it is sending the downloads to Documents Library even though it is set to go to the Briefcase.

    Looks like there's a little trouble with the downloads. #-o
    (I don't have any problems and it works properly).

    However, check about:config to see if the following preferences are correct:

    Code: Select all
    browser.download.dir
    browser.download.lastDir
    browser.download.useDownloadDir





    Cheers ! 8-)

Well, actually I decided to move all my folders from my Briefcase to the Documents Library. They are just images that I have downloaded. I think part of the problem may also be in Windows 7. I have just always downloaded all files to my Briefcase and sometimes old habits are hard to break. Especially when you are as old as I am. Who knows it may end up working better to use the Documents Library anyway. I will give it a try and see.

I appreciate all your help and suggestions though. This forum has always been a great help to me since I am such a dummy with the technical stuff.

Thanks again!
