changing Tor Browser default download folder to /home/user/Downloads

Seeing the confusion caused by the Tor Browser default download directory… ( )

I was wondering if tb-updater should apply an optional (fail open) patch. Using a preferences file to set the download folder by default to /home/user/Downloads. By fail open patch I mean, should tb-updater not able to copy that file into place, it would just echo and ignore this issue. One would think this is not so hard, but…

pref("", "/home/user/Downloads"); alone is not enough. Complete file for pre-configuration:


pref("", "/home/user/Downloads");
pref("", 2);
pref("", true);
pref("", true)

Without the pref it didn’t work. And I couldn’t figure out in reasonable time what is doing. So maybe better to leave the default download folder as bad as is.
