Default File Upload location?

How do I change the default "File Upload" directory (which is currently C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) to something else? I'm talking about the one that shows up when you click on 'Browse...' for e-mail attachments.

Yes, if I change the path to something else, select something there, then the default will change to that. But is there a file to edit accordingly?

Probably not the answer your looking for, but with the MS TweakUI windows add on, you can change the four icon'd shortcuts on the left side of that window.

The defaults are My Documents, Desktop, and two others I cant remember. You can change them to any folder you want.

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question

Tools-Options

in the middle window click Save Files To and tell it where (I download to desktop).

or

you can have it prompt you for where to save them to.

I spent an hour googling, surfing the mozilla project, scouring the registry, etc and came up with a blank. It does not look promising.

I've seen one windows app. a few years ago that lets you add items to the file open sidebar but can't remember which it was. The same techniques did not work for firefox.

It's MS TweakUI that lets you do this (as I mentioned above). The file open/save sidebar is universal across windows once you customize it.

Nope just download TweakUI (google)
install
5th option down is called "common dialogs"
sub menu "places bar"
choose "custom places bar"
type in the paths to dir's you want as shortcuts

They give you 5 spots, but the 5th one is useless as only 4 spots are available on the shortcut menu.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
