Firefox Download Help for OS X.

Whenever I download a file and choose "open with" (such as preview, quicktime, etc) Firefox downloads the file directly to the desktop. When I close out firefox I have to manually delete the files that have ended up there. Is there a way to change this on the OS X version of Firefox?

Thanks in advance.

In Firefox's "Options", there's a "download" tab where you can configure where you want Firefox to save the files.

No, it wasn't an issue about where to save the files. It was an issue about where temp files were saved...as in PDFs that were opened to be viewed once and then done away with. I actually figured it out...it was just adding a boolean (sp?) into the about:config menu.

Thanks for your help, though.
