Description

An increasing number of users are 'running' torbrowser.exe from the download page. This causes the 7zip extractor to extract to a temporary directory. Once IE is closed, the temp dir goes away, along with the extracted tbb.

Telling the user to 'save as' may work on our download pages.

I'd like to suggest "save as ... and extract on the Desktop" to avoid problems with Firefox not loading.

users are going to keep doing this, not sure on the best wording here. Other than "dude, save to downloads" or something, not let them keep doing this.

Or, default to the Desktop for the extraction dialog. #7842 is relevant here (discussion about improving the installer/wrapper/extraction process).

new wrappers and smarter users seem to be hitting the site lately.
