How can I set default upload path for all websites?

Posted

Can you tell me how to set default upload path for firefox?

If I upload something to somesite.com, and I browse for example c:\uploads\something.txt, than firefox saves this, but for somesite.com only. If I has to upload to anothersite.com, firefox doesn't know the previous upload path on my computer. So how can I set default upload path for ALL sites?

I don't think that Firefox stores the upload path, but only remembers the download directory. I don't know if this happens all the time: e.g. you have once saved a similar file extension from a website and Firefox reuses this download directory as the selected upload directory. Otherwise I think that the default download directory is used.

Yes, it stores. By default its the "desktop" folder. So it doesn't matter if you set a default download directory, It will always starts in the desktop folder when you first visit a site.

If I set the default download directory to "c:\default" it will still wants to upload from the desktop at first site visit.
