I think it would be nice to have separate default save locations for downloads and screenshots, for instance downloads saved to the user's default downloads folder (as with other browsers) and screenshots saved to the system's default screenshot location.

For instance, a user might create a Screenshots folder in their user directory and want their system screenshots and Firefox screenshots to be saved to the same directory. Specifically, I changed macOS' save location for to ~/Desktop/Screenshots, but Firefox's download location is ~/Downloads. This means that Firefox screenshots still go to ~/Downloads, not ~/Desktop/Screenshots.

There is also a bug open for using the OS screenshot dir and/or select which directory to use by default. It is connected with a meta bug as they move the screenshot function from an (internal) extension to a standard browser component, which is ongoing now. Nothing is decided though yet in that bug it seems. Not linking to avoid chance of it getting flooded with people just complaining/asking for that.... (this is the place for that, technically)
