Here is a minor issue that I'm having; wondering if anyone has a work-around, as it's not really a bug per-say...

When I'm at work I connect to some Windows shares. I routinely use Firefox to save files from the internet into some of these Windows shares.

Then I take my Mac home and connect to my home network. The first time I try to save a file in Firefox, it sits there and stalls for five minutes while it tries to connect to the last location I saved, which is the Windows shares that don't exist at home... so I have to sit there and wait for it to time out.

Any ideas how I can get it to time-out quicker? Or somehow remember the last save location while I'm at work, but default to a different location (local) when I'm at home?
QUOTE Thanks
