    happens to me all the time. i will download something with firefox, then either switch spaces or move the firefox window over to open the file/copy it somewhere else
    however, it doesn't show up on the desktop. doesn't happen all the time.

    going to the mac HD and clicking on desktop in the pane on the left makes it pop up out of the blue

    happened since i installed leopard. is this a leopard problem or a firefox problem?
