IE8 - Save Picture As goes back to default directory
I'm sure this has already been asked somewhere, but when I save a picture to a directory, IE8 WILL NOT remember that directory the next time that I wish to save a picture. IE has ALWAYS remembered the directory until I exit completely out of the browser.
Why has this been changed? This is extremely annoying, as I do not wish to keep navigating from the default location every time. This is especially annoying if I'm trying to save several pictures from the same site (i.e. my personal site on Smugmug). Please
do not suggest changing the default directory...that's not what I want to do...There has to be a fix for this...otherwise I'm switching back to Firefox or something else.

My hypothesis is that IE forgets the path if it runs in a new process. For instance: if you save a picture and choose a path, then ctrl+click on that page to open a linked page in a new tab and save a picture from that new tab, the save as path is retained.
What I would is to create shortcuts in the default save folder.
