I'm not talking about files I want to download and save to desktop, documents, etc. I mean just viewing, say a pdf, with the 'open with'. In windows, it would still have to download but it would be in a temp file that is hidden away, while on my mbp it dumps it to the desktop. It gets even worse when I view the same document a couple of different times, I end up having doc, doc-1, doc-2, etc on my desktop creating a mess. Any way to get ff to dump to a separate directory for temp files instead of the desktop. I understand safari can open pdfs in the browser and have no need for a download like preview does. What options do I have? Safari just doesn't have the functionality that firefox can with its plugins and extensions.
