When dowloading "anything" the Download Manager states that all downloads  have
been downloaded into ie:"Desktop", regardless of wich folder I dowloaded the
file, or image to.

I have experienced this on Windows Server2003 and WindowsXP Professional.  All
Updates up to date.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on a link and choose "Save As".
2.Save into any folder except the default specified on FireFox.
3.Get it?

Actual Results:  
Uhhh....   the same thing explained in the details.

Expected Results:  
Show the destination folder as "The-One-I-Picked" instead of

go to Tools->Downloads and press clean up
Than try again.
