Change default firefox "save as" window location?


This is probably a stupid question, and might not be the right place to ask but here goes.

Since school ended, I decided to finally wipe and due a clean upgrade to Slackware 13.0

Everything is great except one thing. When I want to save something in firefox, the "save as" window that popups up, that allows you to browse to right directory, popups too low.

In my window manager(wmii), the bottom is cutoff. I want to have the window popup higher. Is this possible? In my previous install, I think the window would usually remember where it last was, but now it seems to always popup in the same location.

I'm not sure if this is slackware, firefox or wmii issue. Also I tried another wm, Awesomewm, and it showed up in the same spot.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Not sure - for me, the SaveAs window pops up centered on the Firefox window. Have you tried it on a non-tiling wm?

As far as the D/L dir default goes, set "user_pref("browser.download.dir", "/path/to/dir");" in prefs.js?

I found out how to do it in KDE, I had to go under "advanced" "special windows settings" and then under geometry, it lets you set it.

Now I got to figure how to do this in wmii. Not having any luck.

I'm not having a problem changing the directory. And I won't know what directory to save it too, until I save w/e. So changing the default directory won't do me any good.

Thanks though, guys.
