Firefox doesn't remember where I last saved an image

Posted

I can't believe this problem is STILL not solves with FF18.

Whenever I'm saving a bunch of images it will constantly change from where I last saved it. Eg. I save "pic 1" in "Cool pics" folder. I then go to save "pic 2" it won't remember that I saved "pic 1" in "cool pics" and it will bring up a completely different directly. Very annoying.

I found this thread from a couple years ago with the same problem http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/882443

I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet!

Is there something I can do to work around this? Otherwise I'm going to have to switch to a different browser because this doesn't happen in IE.

Thanks

hello, firefox will remember the last download directory on a per domain-basis & will offer you that as the default choice when you download from that site again.

if you want to disable that functionality, enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & right-click siómewhere in that page. then create a new boolean preference named browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite and its value set to false.
