Great with FF38 ! Just install the last update from the website author. ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The author wrote this in the description of the addon inside firefox addon "Automatic Save Folder" description :
"Attention:
Known bug with Firefox 18+ : the "First install" tab will always open.
Please, don't use the "Add to Firefox" button from this page, but go to the official website and download latest beta version ! It's already fixed but not available here.
Do not send me insult email about that issue, Update from the website or don't use Automatic Save Folder."

Annoying! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I did not test carefully whether the add-on works. The annoying bad habit that a help page <chrome://asf/content/help/update.xhtml> appears for every newly opened Browser window prompted me to drop the extension short after installation.

Keeps hammering with "thank you for installing" Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't know if this add-on does all what is says but the documentation does not say all what it does. In particular every time you launch Firefox it adds a tab to each and every windows saying "thank you for installing ...".

It's really annoying, furthermore when you installed time ago and you launch different sessions with several windows. It keeps adding.

The solution was to remove the add-on. Now it's no longer a pain in the ass.

doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

followed the instructions. I never see the auto-save-folder option in the save dialog

к сожалению на Mozilla FireFox 34 не работает !!!

broken add on, can't stop these pop ups even with pop up blockers! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This sounds great, although FireFox already "does remember the last directory saved from any domain." Still, it seemed like a good add on ...

But! Every new Firefox window gets the promo tab added, and at Firefox launch too. So if you save and restore a session with 5 windows, you get 5 of this add on promo tabs added, and if you didn't close the 5 from last time when you saved, now you have 10 promo tabs. This is terrbile.

Ergo, every time I restart, every window restored gets this blasted "automatic" promo tab attached.

I can't even stop it with "hosts" file or an ad/pop-up blocker.

Each page says in HUGE type: "This page will only be displayed once, on first install or when important changes must be communicated."

Apparently, "import changes" means anytime you run Firefox, or just open a window.

It always appears. For instance, my mail program pops up a compose or reply window. Yes - "Automatic Save Folder" pops up an attached tab promo tab to that too, and changes the window focus too -- ANYTHING and everything in Firefox gets it.

The default behavior should be "NEVER" pop up, or at least let the user decide. As it is now, it is whack-a-mole, and the only way to rid this malware nuisance is by removing the add-on.
Bad, bad, bad idea and implementation.

I see other users have same problem and complaint.

Say goodbye to repeatedly changing the save folder Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If your the type of person who has a collection of folders you use for saving web content (e.g. banking statement, e-bills, receipt folders) this add-on can save you some of that repetitive changing folders. You can have a specific folders for specific sites and that is just what I was looking for.

I have tested beta version update from developer's website with FireFoX 25.0.1 and works well. As the developer has said you need this version if run FFX 17 or higher. I had to change some of the setting defaults to get it to behave like what I expected from the screenshot and in a way that I liked. It has lots of options to customize it to work the way you want.

Here are the settings I chose - it may help if your not sure what to try.

Page1 tab:
select "Always ask me where to save"
View options ... "Always show"
Suggest all possible folder
View the list of folders
Right click (tick both boxes)


Page 2 tab:
filtering "4,1"


Filters tab:
add a test filter (and make sure the catch all filter is "*", "*" is at bottom of list)
If the file doesn't match any filter save to - "last folder" and "memorize on site-by-site"


Thank you Cyan for a very comprehensive feature set. This one goes in my must have collection.

Great idea, but not working... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

When installed (on FF 25.0.1) , it disabled ALL downloads!
Neither "Save page as..." nor "Save target as..." did work anymore. May be an incompatibility with another of the many add-ons I have installed... or not.
I had to disable it to be able to save anything again.
It's a pity.

Just awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this add-on seems to work actually well. I was thinking that this add-on was completely abandoned and unusable for a long time but I recently retested ii with its version 1.0.4 and Firefox 22 on Ubuntu64 and I discovered that it works!!! No bug with the first launch window any more and filters are effective(read the help page about regexp filters if you have problems). Thanks a lot for this essential add-on!!! Versions are also available on the developer website to download.

Doesn't seem to work. Must be outdated. Last update was January 2012.

Great idea, poor execution Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Add-on does not work on FF 20.0 (ubuntu x64) although idea is great! Hope to see usable version soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working in FF 20.0 either. This is one of the main reasons I switched to firefox from chrome....please fix this (I'm also getting the first launch window showing up every time)

Not working FF19 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not working on FF 19 and the first launch window appears every time we launch FF and pop ups.

I can't for the life of me get the addon to work.
I have put in "all" in the domain and .torrent in the file type and set a local. I have activated it but FF just downloads everything to my default folder.
Shame it is not working (apart from the generous first-launch window spam which is really effing annoying)

Variable syntax is weak and a little haphazard (couldn't stop on $ or %), on the bright side regexp in target folder name was a good idea (e.g. can save wikis into /%asf_rf%(\w+\:)%asf_rf%/).

Its great potential is almost unused, though.

After those saving file name updates of FF, ability to explicitly set name would be a good start. Just add one line for target file name and make at least title from current page's content accessible as %asd_ct% or something, so between it and file names it can be set case-by-case. Of course, since this means title gets grep'd now, it would go beyond workaround and be a great option in itself.

From bigger things, needs at least "if empty" fallback syntax or better true if-then condition. Add this and ability to get arbitrary META, and it could do just about anything short of julienne fries. :]

Most of all, needs updates - right now, last fixed beta from its site would be okay, especially since after first run got broken.

I'm disappointed that I could not make this work. I'm running the most current version of FF and the extension made my browser lock up every time I tried to configure it. I was unable to test it out because it did not allow me to adjust it, so I uninstalled. This would be an incredible tool if it worked.

New Window Shows About Page Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was a nice extension. However version 1.0.4 always opens the update page when the browser starts or a new windows opens. Very annoying. I had to disable it. Please fix!

This was a nice extension. However version 1.0.4 always opens the update page when the browser starts or a new windows opens. Very annoying. The last beta version corrects this but the "save image as" or the "save link as" doesn't work. I had to disable it.
