If im downloading files from mozillazine.org it would save it to the default save path but in a directory

Hi,
You don't need any kind of extension for D/L'ing.
Have you checked what is set in...
Tools > Options > General > Files & Applications > Downloads?

You can set that to anywhere, any folder you create or want.
"Always ask......etc" or "Save files to..."
Just browse to wherever your new folder is located & "Save files to....."
You can save them to anywhere you stipulate.

WebExtensions don't have full access to the file system.
