I am using chown because folders/files I download via Firefox are being saved as being owned by root instead of my own user...
when I used:
sudo chown -R -v username:username path/path/path
I see logs that show that the relevant files/folders have been changed to be owned by the giver username - yet when I view the files in a file manager they remain 'owned' by root..
does anyone know why this is?
