Firefox keeps choosing the wrong default directory to save images to

I used to save all my images to one folder, but it started getting big, and it was difficult to find what I needed, so I created a couple new directories inside that folder (one for cool space images, one for memes, etc.)

When I go to save an image, I have Firefox ask me where to save every time, because I use a few different folders for different things. On any other browser, the folder that would pop up by default is the last one you used. So if I saw a collection of cool space pictures, I should only have to navigate to the "space pictures" folder once.

Firefox refuses to do that. It keeps wanting to save everything in the parent directory. I'm sick of having to navigate to the right directory every single time. How do I make it choose the last folder I used as my default location?
