Each time I open a PDF file using Firefox it puts a copy of the file on my desktop. Somewhat aggrevating.

I can use the preferences in Firefox to store the files in a desktop folder then manually empty the folder or....

I could put the files into Library/Caches/TemporyItems.... If I put them there will OSX automatically clean them up for me or is it just another manual workaround? If its just another manual procedure I'll use the desktop folder....

QUOTE Thanks
