    Default firefox save to desktop

    In BT4 FINAL when I try to download something on the desktop I can't. the desktop it's like a "private" folder, when I click on desktop it's not opening in the "Save" dialog from firefox.

    I'm going to assume you're logging in as root, in which case the home folder (root) IS your desktop - there is no desktop folder and clicking on one causes firefox to follow the symlink it has in mind to the home folder.

    If you want to change your default download location, it is the same way in BT as it is in every other version of firefox, so don't think it's specific by any means to this distribution.

    Side note: My FreeBSD desktop has exactly the same behaviour to it because I don't actually use a "Desktop" folder.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.
