Tip & How-To about Mozilla Firefox
Firefox by default saves anything that you download -- music, movies, documents, etc. -- to a specific Downloads folder. However, many users aren't aware of where this folder is, and they don't want to have to hunt it down every time to find their downloads.
By following the steps below, you can change the location where Firefox saves your downloads. You can have them sent to your desktop, a network folder, a thumb drive, or anywhere else that is accessible from your computer.
To change Firefox's download location:
1. Open Firefox.
2. On the menu bar across the top, click Tools.
3. Select Options from the drop down menu.
4. If the General tab at the top of the window is not highlighted, select it now.
5. Under the Downloads heading, after "Save files to," click the Browse button.
6. Choose a folder or location for Firefox to save your downloaded files to. You can create a new folder by highlighting the location where you want the folder to be and clicking the Make New Folder button in the lower left corner of the window.
7. Once you've selected the folder that you want and it's highlighted, click OK to close the Browse window.
8. If you would rather have Firefox prompt you where to save files every time you download something, click the circle next to "Always ask me where to save files." (This option is helpful if you want to save different kinds of downloads to different locations.)
9. Click OK once you are done to close the window and apply the change.
