Save Time While Downloading Images and Files in Firefox [Productivity Tips]
By on November 9th, 2008

Having used Firefox for quite some time, I am very used to using extensions that help me save time and add value to the already popular browser. Here is a productivity tip from my day-to-day life which has helped me save quite a lot of time while I download images and files using Firefox.

The Problem

By Default does not have a option to save images and files in multiple folders, so after downloading I had to manually segregate the files and store them in separate folders based on their uses.

Or in other cases I would have to browse to the proper folders before I could save the image or file.

For example, wallpapers needed to go into the wallpaper folder, icons in icon folder and so on, this was definitely a waste of time and I was looking for a simple way to segregate images and downloads without losing much time.

The Solution

Firefox has some good extensions that will help you store the images and files into customized folders without you having to do it manually. The Save File To extension allows you to easily create customized folders for storing images, files and entire webpages making it more easier to segregate downloads.

    Great plugin for firefox. I have had the same problem for a long time and didn’t know a plugin existed to solve it. Thanks.

    This extension is great and all and I've been using it for a while now, but it still does not solve the problem of saving an image into multiple directories at once.
