User experience matters
Downloading files
Tor Browser will be allowed to save files in
`/home/amnesia/Downloads/` only.
doc++: where to download, how to upload
Usability issue: if not enough space in RAM for hosting ~/Downloads/
* added a persistence setting for Downloads
* added a GNOME bookmark called "Downloads" when the Downloads
persistence feature is enabled; remaining questions:
- Rename this bookmark "Persistent Downloads"? But then users may
lose data by mistake when they use read-only persistence option.
OTOH, we have had a "Persistent" bookmark for years, even in
read-only persistence mode, and nobody complains.
- Rename this persistent directory and the corresponding bookmark to
include the "Uploading files" use case? (see below)
Uploading files
Basically the same problem as for downloading files. Is it better to
share a common whitelisted directory, or to add a different one to
the whitelist?
Document that one should put files in the `/home/amnesia/Downloads`
folder before uploading them, and make sure that it's the folder
selected by default when clicking a "Browse" upload button on
a website?
