How can I make Firefox remember the last folder I opened?

With sites that allow image uploads etc. when I click on the link to upload something, it opens a folder. How can I make it so if I'm uploading to multiple sites, that same image folder opens each time, instead of opening the last folder I used on that particular site the last time I uploaded there?

I don't know if there is an answer to that.

One thing you can try; copy the files you plan to send to a folder on your computer. then just access that one folder.

You can disable this feature to remember a host based download directory by creating a new Boolean pref on the about:config page with the name browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite pref and set its value to false.

I do not know if this will work for uploads as ell.

Thanks for trying :) No it doesn't work for uploads - I went through the about:config and didn't find anything that looked like it could be set there either :(

That's one answer but also requires me to do more work - Chrome does it automatically, which is why I hoped there was a way to do it in FF too :)

You will have to remove already stored Site Preferences to prevent Firefox from falling back to those.

You can rename (or delete) the content-prefs.sqlite file to content-prefs.sqlite.old in the Firefox profile folder to reset preferences from all websites. That way you keep exceptions stored in permissions.sqlite that would get lost if you clear the "Site Preferences" via Clear Recent History.
