    What program is creating directory?


    Using Debian Squeeze.
    I used to have a directory 'download'. I deleted this directory several times, but the operating system or a program is recreating this. How would I track this down and stop it?

    Thanks

    Are you sure it isn't Firefox or another browser?

    It might be Firefox, although the directory is called Downloads on my system usually. It is typically created in the home directory. To see if that is it, you can open the Firefox options/preferences, go to the General tab and look under the Downloads section. Diddle with the settings there.Always ask you where to save files.
