Firefox 57 …

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!


Thunderbird 61 …

Please check the "Pre-Release" section for compatible beta-versions of Signature Switch and NestedQuote Remover.

Save Link in Folder   Save Link in Folder - Screenshots

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

screenshot1 screenshot2

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)
