Firefox changing default download location?

Hmm it seems firefox (Windows) 3.5.2 has decided to change the default location for downloading files. Used to be the desktop, but if you suddenly discover that you can’t find things you’ve download you might want to head to Tools->Options in firefox.

If you see “Downloads” as the chosen folder (as below), you can change it back to the desktop.

ffdownload

Safari (at least on the Mac) also annoyingly places files there.
