How do I tell Firefox 2.0 to download .pdf files and other similar items to my desktop. It is currently sending them to a random folder that I don't know how it chose. It is annoying to have to go to this sub sub sub sub folder to retirieve any file I download over the internet.
U prolly configured it to download automatically to the random folders. Otherwise, it would most by default download to your desktop, or prompt u where to save it.
If I'm not mistaken, there is a Firefox extension that allows you to configure Firefox to download different types of files to different folders (one for .jpg one for .pdf et cetera). You might find that useful.
Also u can use flashgot with download master. Both are free and easy to use. No doubt its better then standart download manager which is driving me mad. These two will organise you files: download master will automatically create folders for music, programms, videos etcetera. Best wishes and successful downloads
in firefox 2
edit ---- options ----- main
you can choose a default destination or be asked in every download.
Well you can use main options menu or use flashgot add-on to integrate your fire fox with flashget .
