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!

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".
