Firefox doesn't remember where to save pictures from open tabs

Posted

When I go to a site with multiple picture links, I open them in several tabs by pressing the center button on my mouse. When I go to each tab and attempt to save them in one folder, Firefox randomly opens various folders on my drive. Further, I also note that Firefox does not remember my last webpage and does not ask if I want to save those tabs. Since my update from Firefox 17, the problem has gotten worse. I can run Chrome and have none of these problems.

I am running Firefox 18 under Ubuntu 12.04.

Chosen solution

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.

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.

I don't think this is what I meant. What happens when I go to site and say click on several picture links, they all open with the correct pictures. So when I go to each tab and right click to "save image", some random directory opens up, sometimes it is say "Pictures", sometimes, it is "Downloads", some times something else. However, once I select a directory, say "Pictures/Ranier", save that picture in that directory, close that tab (ctrl-w), then go to the next tab and right click on the image and attempt to save it in again "Pictures/Ranier", it may or may not open in that directory, it may well open in some other random directory on my drive--and I mean random! It is all over the place. I have never seen this kind of behavior before.

My point here is that Firefox is NOT remembering what the last directory was at all.

as i've said, firefox will remember the last download folder per domain. so if those pictures are hosted on different sites, it may suggest a different folder for each of them - whereas when you change the setting as described it will always default to the last directory that was used.

Do all images have the same file path or are they coming from different sub directories on the server?

You may have saved images before from that website and Firefox may have saved the locations.

You can delete the content-prefs.sqlite file in the Profile Folder to only remove settings stored in this file and keep the exceptions that are stored in permissions.sqlite that would be lost if you clear the "Site Preferences" via Clear Recent History.
