Not exactly, not completely. When you click on a pdf file or any other
file type the browser (which ever browser) knows how to handle, it offers
to open or download it. If you choose open (or if have set the browser to
always open, don't ask), before opening it, it will be downloaded
somewhere, and the browser (mozillla, for instance) does not ask where
that temporary download will go; what I have seen is that it goes to a
random named file somewhere under /tmp.

The OP is asking how to change that destination to be somewhere under his
home folder instead.
