The second thing I'd like to see added to TenFourFoxBox is the ability to configure the download folder. My system is configured so that the Desktop folder is on my unencrypted solid state drive. Cautious as I am about security, I'd rather not download sensitive documents, like bank and credit card statements, to the solid state drive where they can never be deleted. Instead, I'd like to download such files to the Downloads folder which is on my hard drive where Secure Empty Trash actually works. Besides, I've become accustomed to using the Downloads stack on my dock to find downloaded files. My desktop is so cluttered that I have a hard time finding them there.

    This would require implementing a download manager. That's a fair amount of work to do from scratch, in addition to adding to the browser chrome, which would weigh down the foxbox (see my reply to your other ticket). This request -- though worthy, don't get me wrong -- I can't see implementing any time in the near future if at all.

    You couldn't just make this another option in TenFourFoxBox.app? I.e., another command line value for the foxbox command?
