In some cases this is not the desired behavior (for instance when saving very large files). The user may prefer to save the files directly to the target location. Currently you can get around this by using the Save Link Target As... option from the context menu, which has an inconsistancy (see bug 212167) which causes the file to be saved directly to the target. There should be an option in the advanced preferences to choose which downloading behavior the user would prefer. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use the standard save file to disk function by clicking on a link of a file type which defaults to being saved (exe, zip, gz) Actual Results: The file is always saved to the temporary space, then moved to the target destination. Expected Results: There should be a preference option to allow the file to be saved directly to the target destination without using the temporary space.
