If you download a file and change the path in the "Save As" dialog, a subsequent download attempt will also save to the new path and not the path in the "save all files to this folder" option. Accessing the preferences after the second download shows that the option has been changed to the new directory. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set the "save all files to this folder" path to "D:\Downloads" 2. Download a nightly from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/phoenix/nightly/latest-trunk/ 3. In the "save as" dialog that pops up, change the path to "D:\" and save the file 4. Download the file again, the "Save As" dialog initial directory is "D:\", not "D:\Downloads" as expected 5. Going to preferences shows the preference has been changed to "D:\" Actual Results: Have to manually go back to the desired download directory in the "Save As" dialog and reset the "save all files..." setting. Expected Results: All download attempts should save to the directory specified in the "save all files..." options, regardless of where the last download was saved. The setting should also not be changed except directly by the user. This doesn't seem to occur for all types of file downloads. I.e. "save image as" doesn't seem to show this behaviour.

Additional problem seems to be that after saving once to another folder, the radio button 'Ask me where to save every file' gets selected.
