    Downloads Placed in AppData/Local/Temp folder


    Using FF 57.0.2 (64-bit)

    This issue started after 11-16/17. Both FF and Win 10 are set to put downloads in the Download folder.

    Also, about this same time, opening a new Tab in FF displays a useless screen, which is not a problem, but I wonder if this change is part of the download problem.

    Any suggestion appreciated.

    Thanks...Bill

    The "useless" screen in Firefox is your most recent searches/navigation in Firefox.
    In FF, go to Tools/Options/General/Downloads put a check in Always Ask where to save files. Firefox will ask you where you want to save the download.

    Thanks for the response. I don't consider having to respond for each d/l an improvement.

    Hopefully I'll find a workaround.

    Try that, download a file, then restart and set it to C:\Users\[UserName]\Downloads again and see how it goes
