Paperwhite browser downloads

My local newspaper subscription lets me download the paper in mobi format.... and my PaperWhite 3 "experimental browser" ( FW=5.9.61 ) lets me download said mobi files...

And the default kindle reader displays them on the home page.... and displays them so-so.

But I want to read them in KOReader... but cannot find where downloads are stored? Theyre not in documents folder... so.... where then?

Thanks in advance!

As the default kindle reader can read the books stored in documents folder only, your downloaded mobis should be there. The filenames might be changed?
