Default Firefox

So does firefox not have like temporary internet files? evertime I download like pictures from a website it saves them to my desktop. Do I have to make like a random file or what?

Also do you have to save all files. For instance an .exe installer, With IE I would just open it, with firefox I don't have that option...

While Firefox is open, click on Tools > Options. Under the Main tab, you can set where you want the files to be downloaded to.

From what I have experienced using Firefox, all files must be saved, then opened/ran when finished.

I don't think so. I like Firefox and use it almost exclusively over IE.

Firefox is very good, I don't have a problem with having to save and then open/run files you download. The negatives are by far outweighed by the positives I believe.

I just simply created a folder on my drive called Downloads and had it save them there.

Go back to the options and make it ask you where you want stuff downloaded to.

And if you want your temporary internet files, type about:cache into the address bar.

FireFox Rules.

You can have FireFox clear your downloads when you exit FireFox.

Set up a temp. folder as above.

Alt+T then Alt+O and everything you need is in the Privacy Data section.
