Hello, My mac is10.4.11

I'm using Thunderbird and Firefox.

Every time I open email attachment files or browse PDF files from browser.

All of the files are automatically save to Desktop.

How can I stop this?

Thank you.

Go to your Firefox/Thunderbird Preferences and on the first tab it will ask you where you want to save files.

You can either save them in the same location every time, or you can be prompted where to save them everytime.
