Comment (by g4vin0leary):

 How on earth could they think that starting to save a potentially
 confidential file, automatically, in a globally shared folder, was a good
 idea? I mean using the disk in Firefox, by default, makes sense. But
 certainly not outside of the user profile, and not secretly. But even if
 Mozilla had done it right for the general purpose use case, the tor
 browser still should override this completely.
