Download/Save location always "Documents"
I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.
How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

The outdated information Dropa keeps posting for the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel Preference will not work as it was for Fx 98.0 to 101.0. The Preference for Fx 102.0 to current is browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir
Please be careful with all about:config changes. Please read Firefox advanced customization and configuration options and Configuration Editor for Firefox to learn more.
You can change the first preference shown in the following quote from searchfox. org.
browser.download.useDownloadDir - bool True - Save files directly to the folder configured via the browser.download.folderList preference. False - Always ask the user where to save a file and default to browser.download.lastDir [not a preference] when displaying a folder picker dialog.
