If you lock the preference browser.download.useDownloadDir to true, it also prevents you from selecting a new download directory.

This is incorrect.

Locking the preferences browser.download.dir and or browser.download.folderList should control that.

It is legitimate to force the user to always download to a specific directory, but allow them to pick that directory.

Taking since I need this for policies.
