What is Save In…?
Save In… is a Firefox add-on designed for enhancing your download experience. It offers a selection of features such as a context menu for saving media into user-defined directories relative to the default location, dynamic directory naming, rules-based renaming of downloads and an option to save as shortcuts. The WebExtension API restricts saving exclusively into directories close to the default download location, but there's a way around this limitation using Symlinks. Please configure the add-on appropriately before using.

Summary

Adds a context menu to save media {image, video, audio, link, selection, page} in user-defined folders or directories relative to the default download location.

Save into dynamically named directories.

Flexible rules-based download renaming and routing.

Option to save as shortcuts {.url, .desktop, .html redirect}.

The WebExtension API only allows saving into directories relative to the default download directory. Symlinks can be used to get around this limitation:

Windows: mklink /D C:\path\to\symlink D:\path\to\actual macOS/Unix: ln -s /path/to/actual /path/to/symlink

Make sure the actual directories exist, or downloads will silently fail.

It works fine, but a bit slow
by Charles Jones, 2024-04-19

Only the context menu seems to work. Not the rest. Useless to me. Chrome's Downloads Router extension is way more user friendly and works well... but only for Chrome.
