Firefox AddOn Compatibility

I'm aware that Save Image in Folder and Save Link in Folder are no longer compatible with the latest Firefox releases.
These extensions are based on Mozilla's XUL- and XPCOM-APIs, which are now obsolete and no longer supported.

Bringing the extensions back to life would require a complete rewrite using WebExtensions.
Unfortunately at the moment I can't give you any details on when (or even if) I will be able to accomplish this task.
I will look into it if time permits.

Thanks for your patience!


Save Link in Folder   Save Link in Folder - Screenshots

Install the extension and enter the options-dialog to set your personal folders:

The following options can be set for each folder individually AND in general:
  • Open a "Save As..."-dialog before downloading.
  • Open the target folder when the download starts.
  • A file-prefix and/or file-suffix which can be added to the filename. (Includung useful variables!)
  • Various options in case a duplicate filename exists (SaveAs-Dialog, Auto-Increment, Cancel, Overwrite).
Later on - when accessing the new context-menu in the browser - you have the following options:
Performing a normal click on a folder will use the individual settings.
Holding down the shift-key while clicking on a folder will bypass the individual settings and use the general settings.
This feature gives you the opportunity to decide spontaneously if certain dialogs should pop up (or not) when choosing a folder.

Miscellaneous/Advanced settings:


Especially Linux-users may find it useful to set the executable used for opening the target folder since the standard launch()-method takes no action on their OS.
The rest should be self-explanatory.

Hint: Additional "hidden preferences" can be set using about:config

In addition to the settings above you can use a new toolbar-button:

  • open the toolbar-customization-dialog
  • drag the new icon into the toolbar
  • simply click on the new button to create an index of your set up folders;
    or directly choose a folder to browse it within Firefox

Hint: Hold down the "meta-key" (Windows-key, Apple-key, ...) on your keyboard while clicking one of the folders to open a new tab.

And finally... the main-purpose...
Use the new context-menu entry to quickly save files in your folders (see left screenshot);
in addition you also have the opportunity to use your folders when Firefox detects files with an unknown content-type (right screenshot)
