Mozilla now (as of recent milestones, I'm currently on 0.99) downloads to /tmp on Linux and copies the file to its final destination once it's finished. I would like to be able to bypass this behaviour at will, or alternately, turn it off altogether. I just downloaded most of a .5 GB file only to have the download fail because /tmp filled (the volume I was targetting has plenty of space). A pref to turn off temporary download directory use would probably be adequate since I'm sure that 99.9% of the time it's not an issue. Another possibility is for Mozilla to check and see whether there's enough space in the temporary directory. If not, it could direct write to the target instead. This is a nice, pref-less option.
