Firefox 1.0.4 does not exhibit this behavior.
I see the same. WFM for the last time in  Build ID 2005062701.

Is it possible that the fix for 298478 caused the regression?

Not positive, but it appears that the fixes checked in from
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=287111 directly affect the prefs
used for downloading.

Does it work for you after a restart?

No, it remains the same.
repro with existing profile and set "ask me where to save every file" :
1.open FF
2.Open Options ->Downloads and change to "download to save all files to this
folder" (use desktop or choose a folder)
3.Download a file by clicking on it
4.Open Options ->Downloads and change to "ask me where to save every file"
5.Download something

 It won't ask you where to anymore, not even after restart.

I tried with
with existing profile and set "ask me where to save every file"
step 1
step 2 + restart
step 3 + restart
step 4 + restart
step 5

and it worked normal

no, it doesn't.

i think the patch for 298478 may have caused this.
so it seems we're setting useDownloadFolder folder in the pref window check for
it in contentAreaUtils, and never use it (even before the contentAreUtils
patch), fun.

This is basicly bug 284089, I don't see anything difference between the former
builds to the lastest one.
