User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20120429 Firefox/12.0 SeaMonkey/2.9.1
Build ID: 20120429011004

Steps to reproduce:

Trying to save a jpg file

Actual results:

Seamonkey offers my default "MyPictures" folder to save to.
I want to save the jpg file to 'elsewhere' so I save it to 'elsewhere'.
The next time I want to save a jpg file, it again offers the default "MyPictures"

Expected results:

I think(?) it should offer the "elsewhere" folder next time I try to save a jpg and not always the MyPictures.
My download preference is set to "Always ask me where to save files".

I'm not sure whether it is a duplicate, I found similar unresolved bugs under

As a test, create a new, clean, Profile.
Does the problem persist in that Profile?


It does not sound like you have the issue linked below, though it could still be helpful to follow through the tips there & see if anything mentioned helps your situation.

If I create a new profile, it does not behave like that so it is something with my current profile...

OK it seems to have been solved.
I had previously moved my default Windows Downloads folder.
I reset my download preference first to always download to Downloads then I changed the default download folder to something else (MyDocuments).
Finally I again reset the download preference to  "Always ask me where to save files". 
Now it seems to be remembering the last selected download location.
