Option for default download directory and the last downloaded directory.
EDIT Build it in the FlashGot>> more options.

Which download manager are you using?
If it'd the Built In, you just need to select a default directory in Firefox's Tools|Options.
Otherwise the answer varies.

The only directory FlashGot deals with is its own Temporary directory.

Other directories should be handled by your download manager.

A couple "confirmations" are mention here, http://flashgot.net/changelog, dealing with GetRight & ReGet, so don't know if they would apply for you.

Not sure what you mean by, "EDIT Build it in the FlashGot>> more options"?

Thankyou ,SOLVED.Yeah altering the choices in the FF>> options solves it.But makes you wonder why the prompts are different in nature when a file is directly DL thru FF and one thru FG>>FF where the full directory view (where to save the file) is missing? (ie when the option "Ask me where to save file" is selected in FF)
I thought you could add the default folder option or the choices avbl in FF ( for browser built in) downloads just as you have the overwrite function.

Just meant that portion was added at a later date.Perhaps inclusion of the date would have been more appropriate.You never finish learning.....
