Changing the Download Directory/path

Hello,

I'm new here and also looking to find out how to switch the download directory/path. When I downloaded FlashGot I inadvertently saved the download destination to "My Documents" and would really like to change that.

Not sure, but is that going to be a FF setting that determines that?
Options | General -> Downloads

No, that cannot be - as I've already tried this, it was my first move.

And you're using (Browser Built In) for your download manager?

When I change to that, the first thing that happens with a download attempt, is I'm prompted for "Destination Directory" (which also has a Browse button to change it).

(In SeaMonkey) if I set Edit | Preferences | Browser -> Downloads to "Save files to: Downloads", FlashGot automatically saves files to my Downloads directory - without prompting for a directory to save to. When I change that (in SeaMonkey) back to "Always ask me where to save files", at that point, FlashGot then prompts me, first, for the download location.

You would be right. By changing the directory on Firefox - it change it for FlashGot, I swear this did NOT work the first time, though. :lol: Thanks

It may also be, affected by, I think that by default, FF remembers the last used download directory - per domain, though I'm not sure offhand whether that comes into play here or not? (Suppose it would.)
