Posted Sep Mon 18th pm Daifne, egidio- thanks for responding. I'm not downloading from the Web, I'm merely I'm opening an email attachment, so Safari is irrelevant, I think. I'm wondering if the preferences files are corrupted.

Any suggestions for a fix? Posted Sep Mon 18th pm Actuallyl, Daifne is correct. On a Mac, you set your browser preference as well as where your default download folder is by using Safari. Even if Safari is not your browser of choice, you still have to use it at least once to make those changes.
The same goes for email.
What goes in Mail Downloads?
In order to set your default email program to TB, for example, you need to open Mail at least once and set it there. Try to go to Safari and choose a new location where you want your download folder to be. Though TB asks where you want to download files, it actually uses your default settings from Safari. It's worth a try Posted Sep Tue 19th am Well, I take it back I went to its preferences and selected a location inside my user folder.
Sure enough, when I got an attachment and right clicked on it, it directed me to that folder. And no, I had not changed anything in Safari.

Then I went back and changed the saving location to the Desktop. TB obliged and took me to the desktop when I right clicked on the attachment. So, at least in my Mac, TB is saving the files where I tell it to, regardless of where Safari has it set.
Posted Sep Tue 19th am Actually, egidio, this is a known issue. If you just open an attachment without setting the default download folder in Safari, the attachment will copy to the desktop. It's not about saving it, it's about opening it.
I have Safari set to download to my desktop, referring to downloads from the Net - totally unrelated to opening or saving attachments from an email app. My problem is not with opening attachments, Daifne, it's with TB automatically saving them to my desktop. If this is the case, what should I do? Thanks for your help, egidio and Daifne. Try what I suggested and see what happens. If you refuse to, well, then I can't help you. Posted Sep Tue 19th pm I'm amazed at Apple's response. That'll get rid of all your settings for TB, though.
It'll be a fresh start. Posted Sep Tue 19th pm Daifne, I'm not refusing to do as you suggested. You said to "set your default download folder in Safari. If you are talking about something else, I misunderstood, please tell me what to do step by step! I'm relatively new to Mac. Apple does not offer support for TB. Posted Sep Tue 19th pm If you have Safari set to save them to your desktop, then that is where Thunderbird will put your attachments.

However, people who frequently send or receive email messages with lots of images may prefer to disable inline image attachments and instead have the images represented by icons only.
