Dear Firefox team,
It is good that I can choose to a) open a file with Firefox, b) open it in a different app or c) download it.
It is not good that all three of those actions lead to the file being downloaded into the specified download folder.
I'm aware of the ability to choose this folder in the settings. However, I would really appreciate the option to choose a different folder for files that are just viewed vs. files that are intensional downloads.
I understand that files need to be stored locally in order to be displayed or opened. So I would kindly suggest to differentiate two local folders:
Case c) DOWNLOADING files: Store the files in the specified downloads folder
Cases a) and b) OPENING files: Please store the files in a temp subfolder of the specified downloads folder (or allow specification of another folder in the settings)
This would allow me to bulk delete everything from my downloads/temp folder every once in a while, while decluttering my downloads folder, which would then only store intended downloads.
Thanks for considering (and opefully getting rid of this nuisance, as has also been pointed out in support requests like this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409)!
