These dialogs are opened with the "centerscreen" flag, so appear on the center of the screen and their position is not persisted.

I confirm this behaviour (for both dialogs) is equivalent on Mac OS X. Tested with Mac OS X 10.5.6 (Dutch, nl_NL) and Firefox 3.5 beta 4 (Dutch, nl_NL locale).

Question is whether that's a bug or not.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode or a fresh profile? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.
