Downloading creates default directories even if it should ask for a directory
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:126.96.36.199pre) Gecko/20090717 SeaMonkey/2.0b1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:188.8.131.52pre) Gecko/20090717 SeaMonkey/2.0b1 Default downloading directories are created even if checkbox 'Always ask me where to save files' is checked. For downloading files, directory '~/Desktop' is created. For saving images, directory '~/Downloads' is created. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In preferences, choose tab 'Downloads' and check 'Always ask me where to save files' 2. Choose any file to download. or: 2. Point to any image and select 'Save image as...' from context menu. Actual Results: For files, directory '~/Desktop' is created before directory selection dialog appears. For images, directory '~/Downloads' is created before directory selection dialog appears. Expected Results: No new directories should be created. Shouldn't the default be same for both? Preferences shows 'Downloads'.
Can you try and reproduce with SeaMonkey v2.0b2 ?
I just tried, now. I can still reproduce it with given steps. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206pre) Gecko/20090903 SeaMonkey/2.0b2
Then this sounds like a download manager backend and therefore toolkit problem to me.
