I use Webshots for my wallpaper and screensaver,  the free version which allows only five pictures per day.
Using Firefox the selected pictures download to "Desktop" or "Downloads" or ???, but never to the required Webshots storage file.
Using IE or Yahoo the pictures download correctly.
For Webshots only:  My ID:   osauder    My Password:   lvinja
Note: only 5 pictures per day can be downloaded using my account.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download Webshots program. 
2.Using IE, select "daily photos".(Webshots uses the default Browser.)
3.Download a photo, noting noting automatic filing steps.
4.Repeat using Firefox as the default browser.

Actual Results:  
Firefox does not follow the Webshots file downloading protocol and cannot be used with Webshots.

Expected Results:  
Same function as IE and Yahoohoohoo.

I use Firefox for 80% of my browsing,  Yahoo for 20%,   and IE only when I want my PC to CRASH.
Also, I am now using Thunderbird for my Email
Yes, I got tired of losing all my files and addresses every time I had to reload Windows XP when IE got hacked with spyware and viri.
