Opera no longer saving files in last remembered folder

  • Hello
    Since about a week ago, I've noticed that Opera no longer remembers the folder that it most recently saved a file in, but instead always saves files to the Desktop. Suppose I want to save a number of related images or web pages using Ctrl+S -- previously, I would create a folder on e.g. my Desktop e.g. "New Folder" and then when saving a file from Opera I needed to navigate to that folder only once. All subsequent files that I saved would be saved in that same folder. But now, Opera always chooses the Desktop as the save-as location, even if I've just saved a previous file to the "New Folder" folder just a second ago. How can I get the old behaviour back?

  • Version of Opera?

    Personally I thought recent versions of Opera always used your downloads folder (whichever one you set in Settings).
