I can drag the documents and downloads icons from my doc or to the trash, desktop or by right clicking, but on reboot they reappear on the dock. I have not been able to figure out why or how to fix this. I previously had them removed and they just recently started coming back on each reboot. Also, can I set the download folder to a different default place somehow? I have it set in Safari and Firefox to a different place, but Leopard wants to insist on that default download folder dock icon. This is driving me nuts. I want those icons off my dock for good. Any help is appreciated.
