I am downloading Ubuntu 12.04 from an 11.10 LiveCD, connected to the Internet via tethering to a smartphone. (Please don't ask why...) I have discovered that I have not enough space to download it to my Downloads on the CD. How do I make the download go to my Micro SD card? (Yes, I have it mounted already.)

In Firefox goto Edit and choose preferences, under "General" tab you can change the downloads location by clicking on "Browse" in front of "Save files to".

You can also click the radio button for Always ask me where to save files and it will ask you for the path to save the file each download. – James May 19 '12 at 20:38

In Firefox go to Edit -> Preferences -> and under the General tab, in the Download sections you can pick the destination for downloaded files.
