Firefox Quantum (57.0 …)

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!

Signature Switch   Signature Switch - "Fortune Cookie File"

This is how a "Fortune Cookie File" with different signatures should look like:


In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Mississippi has
shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. Therefore ... in the
Old Silurian Period the Mississippi River was upward of one million
three hundred thousand miles long ... seven hundred and forty-two years
from now the Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long.
... There is something fascinating about science. One gets such
wholesome returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of
fact.

    -- Mark Twain
%
In the Top 40, half the songs are secret messages to the teen world to
drop out, turn on, and groove with the chemicals and light shows at
discotheques.

    -- Art Linkletter
%
In those days he was wiser than he is now -- he used to frequently take
my advice.

    -- Winston Churchill

Note: The first and last line shouldn't contain the %-separator-char.

A nice fortune-cookie program plus some data-files can be found here: Fortune4All, Fortune data



Another hint for people that want to use HTML-formatted-signatures in a fortune-cookie-file:
Make sure you don't put any <br>'s (or any other tags, etc.) before or after the %-character!

To achieve HTML-compliant line-breaks in your fc-file, create something like this:


line1 of sig1<br>
line2 of sig1<br>
line3 of sig1
%
line1 of sig2<br>
line2 of sig2<br>
line3 of sig2
%
line1 of sig3<br>
line2 of sig3<br>
line3 of sig3
...
   or   

<pre>
line1 of sig1
line2 of sig1
line3 of sig1
</pre>
%
<pre>
line1 of sig2
line2 of sig2
line3 of sig2
</pre>
%
<pre>
line1 of sig3
line2 of sig3
line3 of sig3
</pre>
...



Now... to get you even more confused... there's another "specialty" you can use on fortune-cookie-files. ;-)

Let's assume you want to have a random fortune-cookie picked each time, but additionally you want to have a "fixed part" before it; then this is how to do it:

Fortune-Cookie #1
%
Fortune-Cookie #2
%
Fortune-Cookie #3

Everything above the $-line will be treated as your "fixed part"; below follows the usual fc-file.
