Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080311 Firefox/2.0.0.13
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.12 (20080213)

In the "Attachments" tab under "Options" my files are being saved to a folder which doesn't exist on my hard drive.  However, the files must be there somewhere because they are executable from the E-mail to which they are attached.  When I changed the save location to one which does exist, the file doesn't show up there.  When I do a File Search the result is always that the file can not be located by Windows explorer.  I want to copy some of these files to a unique back-up disc but I can not locate them.  Where are they going and why can't I find them?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.save attachments to: C:\downloads (this is the non existent one)
2.Attachment comes with E-mail
3.Attachment (example .mov file) can be opened from E-mail 
4.Change save to folder: C:\download\attachments
5.Attachment comes with E-mail
6.Attachment can be opened from E-mail 
Actual Results:  
Although the file can be opened from E-mail it can not be found in the download folder indicated in the Options menu nor can it be located with a File Search under the Windows Start Menu.

Expected Results:  
The attachment file should have been delivered and saved in the folder as indicated on the Options menu under the tab "Attachments"
Attachments are part of the mails (and stored there, in your profile folder). 

The Attachments options apply only to what happens when you actually click an attachment in a mail. (But even then, the original attachment will remain inside the mail.)

Agreed, the attachment options are quite confusing!
