Please help! Since updating to Firefox v29, my downloads are disappearing.

    Firefox and Cyberfox options are still set to "Save files to desktop." The download arrow shows the progress but they never show up on the desktop nor does Sandboxie offer to recover them which pretty much proves the download isn't even really occurring. I'm completely stomped! Thank you!
    I've restored to a two day old image and Sandboxie is recovering downloads but doesn't remember profile changes other than new bookmarks or deleting them.

    Have you tried setting Firefox to ask you where to save the file (save as) and specifying to save to desktop or downloads and setting Sandboxie recovery folder to match just as a test?

    After a restore, this is working but I doesn't remember anything I change while sandboxed!
