Set Safari's download folder via script for private browsing

Hi everyone... the hint's author here :)

You might find that the part of the script which checks that GUI Scripting is enabled causes an error on your machine. I've noticed I get it intermittently on mine.

If you experience this, make sure you've got GUI Scripting enabled (open /Applications/AppleScript/AppleScript Utility and check the Enable GUI Scripting box), then delete the my check_requirements line (line 13, funnily enough!). You should be good to go after that.

Hi, I like the idea of this script, but I'm having some trouble getting it to work. It mounts the image and sets my Private Browsing on, but it won't change my download location to the encrypted disk image when I enable it. Also, if I manually change my download location to the disk image, when I disable the 'Private Browsing' via that script, my download location is not reverted to the original one and the disk is not ejected. Am I doing something wrong? I have put the path for the disk image correctly because it is mounted, and I have called the image 'encrypted' and that's what I set at the beginning of the scripts. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
