    Not a real significant issue but a nuiscance,

    I am on a MAC Mini, OS X 10.3.9, and surf the net via Safari and FireFox. Previously when I would right click on an image and select download image to desktop, there it would go right on the desktop. Starting yesterday a misterious folder appeared on my desktop, "original Images." It was never there before in 2 years on this Mac. Anyway, now all of a sudden when when I select Download image to Desktop, it automatically goes into this folder. Move the folder to the Trash, and the next time you try and download a picture, bam a new one is created on the Desktop.
    What gives and where did this come from all of a sudden???
    How can I disable this?

    My house!
    When in Safari, go to the Safari menu, and click on Preferences. Then where it says Download files to: make it say Desktop. Some how it must have accidentally gotten set to original image.

    That was the first place I went to, and it had me even more confused. Safari Preferences are and were set to Desktop, yet pics still go to Original Images folder....:(
