SLiF / SIiF   Save Link/Image in Folder - FAQ

Here's a list of frequently asked questions:
  1. Is there a way to export all folder-settings so that I don't have to reconfigure them when I reinstalled my system.
  2. Some links/images can't be saved. A dialog showing "unknown.ext" pops up. What's this?



Is there a way to export all folder-settings so that I don't have to reconfigure them when I reinstall my system.
Yes, there is. Like pretty much every other extension out there, SLiF/SIiF saves its preferences directly into Firefox's preference-system.
Just open Firefox and type "about:config" in the address-bar. Then type "extensions.savelinkinfolder" (or "extensions.saveimageinfolder") into the filter-box. You then should see all settings for SLiF/SIiF.
Just copy the preference named "extensions.savelinkinfolder.folders" (or "extensions.saveimageinfolder.folders") into a text-file. Now you have exported your folder-settings. Later on you can use this method (the other way around) to import aswell.

Some links/images can't be saved. A dialog showing "unknown.ext" pops up. What's this?
Please check: "SLiF - Hidden Prefs" or "SIiF - Hidden Prefs".
