Save Link in Folder   Save Link in Folder

This extension helps you to quickly save links/files into different folders without having to click through your folder structure again and again.

Simply create your personal set of frequently used save-locations and access them via context-menu.
The folders can automatically be opened by your favourite file-manager upon downloading.
They can even be browsed within Firefox using a new toolbar-menu.

Known issues:
  • won't work with folders containing unicode-chars; see BugZilla
  • the extension may not work properly on MacOS since there is/was a bug in XPCOM's "initWithPath"-method for handling a "nsILocalFile"
  • the Noia-theme (and obviously a few others aswell) makes some buttons disappear in the options menu; uninstall that theme and everything is back to normal
    (Update: the recently published version 3.13 seems to fix that problem)
  • the behaviour when saving executable files has changed with Firefox 2.0 (at least on Windows-systems); a simplified dialog gets shown (instead of the usual "unknown content-type"-dialog); there's a workaround to change that (and make the "Save Link in Folder"-dropdown visible again): see the thread at MozillaZine
