How to set “Always ask where to save files” in Firefox


Firefox is one of the best and most popular browsers. It has a nice and simple design and great options to explore and see what works for you. If you find specific options useful, you should enable them and keep them on. On the other hand, some options can be too much for you, and if that’s the case, you can turn them off. For example, Firefox has options for downloads as well. You can choose to save the files in a particular folder, but you can choose to be asked where you want the files to be saved each time you download something. If that’s suitable for you, all you need to do is enable that option in the settings. Here, in this article, we are going to share the steps for that. First, let’s see how to set “Always asl where to save files” in Firefox.

How to set “Always ask where to save files” in Firefox

If you are new to Firefox, don’t worry – you will get used to the browser and its options fast. Making changes is not complicated at all.

By default, the files you are about to download will be placed in the “Downloads” folder on your PC. But, you can change that and be asked where you want the files to be saved each time you are downloading files. Here is how to enable the option we were talking about:

  • Open Firefox on your PC
  • Next, click on the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) in the top right corner of the browser.
  • Now click Options
  • Scroll down until you reach the Files and Applications section
  • Check the option “Always ask where to save files.”

From now on, each time you want to save a file on your PC, you will be asked to pick a place where the files will be stored.
