How can i make certain file extensions go to certain folders on download ?

Kuphostiwe

I've been trying to find a plugin that can make certain extension types go into certain subfolders of download automatically

Example:

Downloading .EXE -> Goes Into Downloads/Installers Downloading .PNG -> Goes into Downloads/TempImages

You would need to use a download manager for that.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

Unfortunately, when they came out with Firefox Quantum, they also destroyed thousands of great add-ons.

That is why I am still using v54.

Hello LuciferSK,

Would you take a look at this :

https://www.ghacks.net/2018/03/15/save-in-switch-between-multiple-download-folders-in-firefox/

And this is the extension in question :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/save-in/?src=search

Any good, or does it not even come close to what you're looking
for  ?

That's not going to happen anymore. The only one I found was FDM v3 that would at least download files with matching extension to the right folder it creates.

Hmm okay well thank you guys for the answers, i think i'll just have to get used to saving in specific locations which will be a hard habit to break as i'm used to just clicking ok to download

Don't give up just yet - if you remove the Chosen Solution mark from your post, somebody else might take a look at this thread and (who knows  ?) come up with the perfect solution for you .....
