Default Is there an ad-free YouTube clone for Windows like NewPipe is for Android?

Tools - Options - General - Downloads - Save Files To...

You're forgetting (I do this all the time), that
some users aren't even aware there is a "menu bar" :-)

This is why they can't find it on their own.

The missing step, for those playing along at home, is to
make a right-click on the top of the Firefox window, and
the right-click menu offers a "Menu Bar" item. When you
select that, a return visit later will have a tick box
indicating you're enabled the Menu Bar at the top of the
window. Note that the entire surface of the top bar is
not "active", so you have to move the mouse around and
try a few times, until you hit the ticklish spot.

It's the modern "Easter Egg" design method for GUIs.

After you've done that, you can follow Wolfs path-to-victory.

When I offer Firefox help, I get this all the time.
"What menu bar are you talking about?" :-) Well, there
is one. You just have to play peek-a-boo with the interface
to get it.

Another way to get to the Options page in Firefox is to click the
'hamburger' icon and select Options from the little window that opens.
Phone users will know what the hamburger looks like.

I *think* that's always available, and without any ticklish tricks.
