This is a brilliant idea and could also be a workaround for the missing drag and drop capabilities of Firefox. If you managed to implement this, it would be great. In any case, thank you very much for this great extension, best,

Heh, how ironic that after thinking for the nth time how some things would be easier if "Save File to" was allowing that, I came back here to look whether there are any developments on that matter and I see this. Thanks for the support mate, let's hope it's not something impossible to introduce and ake could help. :wink:

Thanks a lot for trying to find a way around this. I wish I had the knowledge to actively help rather than merely suggesting something.

SFT appears to be broken in the current version of Aurora (19.0a2, 2012-11-26). When I try to save a file, nothing happens and I receive the following message in the error console:
Code: Select all
Error: [Exception... "Not enough arguments [nsIContentPrefService.removePref]"  nsresult: "0x80570001 (NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://savefileto/savefileto.jsm :: savefileto.setDownloadPrefs :: line 408"  data: no]

Yes, I know (issue 26). I'll try fix that this week.

Firefox is getting per-window private browsing in the near future and many interfaces are changed to support that -> lot's of breakage in Save File to.

How's going Ake? I see we got no developments on issue #28 hmmm...
By the way, a bug I've noticed for quite some time now is that when you use control to create a new subfolder to save a file there on the fly, that subfolder doesn't get added in the recent folders section upon trying to save something there right after. It will only be added AFTER THAT (after the second file you save there). Is that fixable?

Yes, no progress there.

If you want to follow what's happening on that issue, you can sign in to google, and click the star icon beside the issue's title. That way you get an email notification if there's any development there.

It's a feature, not a bug :)

When that save dialog opens where you create that sub-folder, Save File to has already released control to Firefox, and so Save File to doesn't know where you choose to save the file, whether into the initial folder or to some other folder, old or new.

Yes, it's a bit annoying but I'm not going to bother to hack around it.

Does this addon allow saving from the URL bar/Awesomebar? I want to save the link of the current page but it is not as straight forward as saving a link ON a page. Am I overlooking something here?

No. Save File to doesn't add anything to URL bar at the moment.
