    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.

    Im not sure about Thunderbird since I don't use it but you should be able to solve your problem by opening the application and click on Thunderbird>Preferences.

    As for firefox if you mean files you download are automatically saving to your desktop then click on Firefox>Preferences then check the box saying "ask me where to save downloads"

    hope that helps
