    Running Leopard with the latest version of Firefox.

    For some reason my 'Downloads' folder keeps filling up with .html files. I clear them out and they slowly return.

    I'm thinking somewhere I have a temporary internet file setting messed up telling it to store them in my downloads folder. I have tried to look in my firefox settings and can't seem to figure it out.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I suspect that Firefox's cache folder was mistakenly set to the downloads folder. You should be able to change this in Firefox's preferences, but if you can't find it there, you can always use about:config to access all the settings Firefox has to offer.
