This doesn't actually require #434327 (in Firefox) to be fixed first, does it? They're similar but independent bugs, right?
Depends on what the bug turns out to be. Added dependency for easy tracking.
Bug 434327 comment 11 I found a system setting that stops this. Create ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and place XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="/home/linux_user/" in it where linux_user is you user name. More details in the other bug.
