How do you format the download destination path?

Say, for example, I want the download path to be "MyDownloadDirectory/%yyyy/%yyyy.%mm" which means "Change the download path every month to a folder named after the current year and the current month inside a folder named after the current year".

Many non-browser applications allow me to do this, but for some reason browsers generally don't have that option. I was thinking that there was a way to do this in Firefox.

What is a way to do this? If it's not possible in vanilla Firefox, is there an extension available for this?

All of a sudden I can no longer access a website that I have visited a million times before. I get an error message stating...

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I have cleared cookies/cache and all that achieves is that I can get to the website's log in page but then straight back to the same error message. I'm so frustrated as this is a website I need to access for my work.

I can get to it no problem on my phone so it appears to be a Firefox issue. I don't want to use another browser as I get on well with firefox but I fear I may have to as this is too important a website to be without.

Any help would be appreciated - thank you, Nat

I had Duck Duck Go set as the default search engine. Recently every time I turn on the computer Google is the default search engine. The OS is Ubuntu 20.04.3. I unchecked Google as a search engine. Do I need to delete any files that say Meta or take some other action? Thanks for your help.
