A pocketbook 912 with 2.1.2 firmware.
In the standard, qt web browser, under Edit->preferences, there is an item "save downloads to".
There is a box there, but it will not take focus for the cursor. I cannot type into it.
Maybe not coincidentally, I cannot download files in the browser. They show up in downloads, but literally nothing happens if I click on "open".

Could somebody tell me,
* does downloading work for you ? Anything.. Just find a small pdf file for example
* what directory do downloaded files end up in ?

Why am I blaming myself ? I may well have deleted a directory the browser wants to use. I tend to clean up mercilessly and occasionally regret it.

Thanks if you could tell me if everything works for you.
in my case they end up in a "Download" directory in the main memory - you can try and search for the document you downloaded to see if it is there. Note that some files don't show up (e..g I could not find an .xlsx file I had downloaded, not sure whether it does no show up because it is not supported).
