- by Firefox user 13952351, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5The options for this extension should include a default folder (like, I don't know: the desktop !!).
Starting to sound familiar?
What's the problem with adding it to the right-click menu?
- by Firefox user 9789270, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you for working on this add-on. I was used to SaveLink but this might be the way to go for Quantum. As a minor critique I would like to put forward the same point as your second reviewer: The security dialogue when clicking on a saved link is a little bit annoying. Can this be fixed ? For the rest no problems at all. Very good and needed extension !
Update: I don't understand why AVGFree Antivirus considers since october 2018 QC as a browser add-on with a bad reputation (two stars).Unfortunately this isn't something that can be fixed through the extension. In windows, when you download a file in Windows, it will label it as "downloaded from the internet". To disable this, see: https://winaero.com/blog/disable-downloaded-files-from-being-blocked-in-windows-10/
I really do wish I could do more to fix this. Thanks for the review.

Thanks guys..Great app!
- by andario2007, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5UPDATE: You fixed it!
If it helps, I tested the previous version disabling every single addon and it still didn´t work on amazon.com, mobile.de, elpais.com and other hugely popular sites. I´m using FF 58.0.2 x64 and it works now for every site I´ve encountered so far, including the aforementioned.
And pretty great about the icon BTW, it´s much faster than right click+scroll down menu+click QuickCut, and therefore an actual improvement over the good'ol DeskCut.
Thanks, Mr. Developer!
Promising, but utterly unreliable.
Like someone else said before, it doesn´t work on Amazon, and it doesn´t work either on MANY other sites, for whatever reason, not giving you an error message or anything. It just doesn´t to anything at all.
As such, you just cannot TRUST it, you have to monitor your download icon or something like that to make sure you have actually saved something, or you risk losing it, so it´s not only unreliable, but actually stressful.
Anyway, I just disabled it until the next update. And if it ever works properly, I´ll update my rating, of course.
Thanks.Hello, thank you for your review. I find it strange that it doesn't work for you on Amazon, since I have no problems saving Amazon links (just tried it). I personally use this extension myself and haven't had any problems so far. Could you tell me what other websites are causing problems for you? Also, what Firefox version are you using?
EDIT: Please try the new changes and report back. I updated the extension with a fix (and some new small features)
EDIT: Thanks for the feedback! Glad it's working well for you.

Is there any way to have the link to go directly to the desktop and bypass the Save-As window?
Other than that it works great!You can bypass the confirmation windows by changing your Files and Applications settings to "Save files to" and then choose "Desktop". Do keep in mind that this will save all your downloads to desktop.
Unfortunately it is only possible for the extension to save files relative to the download directory. I am planning on creating a setting that will allow users to choose download folders relative to the download directory. This folder can then be redirected to another folder using a symbolic link.
- by Firefox user 13518380, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Good work! I've searched long for this.
URLs are saved as "Internet Zone"-Files and a security dialog has to be confirmed during opening them. It would be easier to save them as "Trusted Sites Zone"-URL.
It doesn't work with every site. For example 'amazon.com' doesn't create a shortcut.
