I have two users on my Mac. I originally downloaded and installed FF in /users/AA, and in the preferences pane Main I specified /users/AA/temp as the download folder. Then I created user BB. I copied the .img file to BB. I installed FF. I went in to the preferences and changed the cownload folder to /user/BB/temp. I closed the preferences, closed and restarted FF, double-checked my work. But when I tried to download something, FF gave error, saying I did not have access to /users/AA/temp. I changed prefs to Desktop, same error. Can't get FF to forget about /users/AA/temp

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Install FF in /users/AA
Specify downloads folder /users/AA/temp
Install FF in /users/BB
Specify downloads folder /users/BB/temp
DM tries to download into /users/AA/temp
Change the downloads folder to anything you want.
DM will not forget about /users/AA/temp
Help. I'm stuck with Safari for my downloads.
