User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 In case the default save folder option is the default from the start (vendor-enabled), the user will never know the location unless (s)he looks it up in the preferences, of which many users don't know, or don't want (need) to know; additionally, it may be irritating that the browser doesn't open a file requester to let the user choose the destination (all major browsers up to now do that on saving links). In worst case the user won't see anything happening when downloading, and in best case they see the download manager, which again won't tell the location of the file either. My suggestion would be a first time dialog at the first download that will tell the user that all downloads are being saved automatically to the respective folder, possibly with an option to open the download preferences, or maybe actually making the dialog a question whether to keep that behaviour or not. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install Firefox with default save folder enabled as the default option in the profile template 2. Start Firefox for the first time (empty/no profile dir) 3. Commence a download Actual Results: I downloaded a file and didn't know where it was located after the download. Expected Results: At the very least telling me that downloads happen automatically to the respective folder, and at best telling me that and offering me to set up that behaviour.

bug 246618 provides a better solution, imo.
