Firefox 57 …

I'm aware that Save Image in Folder and Save Link in Folder are no longer compatible with the latest Firefox releases.
These extensions are based on Mozilla's XUL- and XPCOM-APIs, which are now obsolete and no longer supported.

Bringing the extensions back to life would require a complete rewrite using WebExtensions.
Unfortunately at the moment I can't give you any details on when (or even if) I will be able to accomplish this task.
I will look into it if time permits.

Thanks for your patience!

Known issues are listed here.


v1.3.18 (12.12.2015)
  • added [sl-SL] locale
  • raised maxVersion to 42.*

v1.3.17 (27.09.2015)
  • added [zh-CN] locale

v1.3.16 (04.03.2015)
  • fixed incompatibility issues due to an API-change on saveURI()
  • raised maxVersion to 36.*

v1.3.15 (01.12.2013)
  • raised maxVersion to 25.*

v1.3.14 (26.06.2013)

v1.3.13 (01.02.2013)
  • another improvement due to API-changes concerning "private browsing"

v1.3.12 (30.01.2013)
  • minor changes to improve backwards-compatibility

v1.3.11 (17.01.2013)
  • again, the previous version didn't work as expected :-( ... sorry 'bout that :)
    I invested some more time in code-digging and testing this time. I'm pretty confident it'll work now.

    In case someone else developing extensions is experiencing problems with the saveURL- and saveURI-methods:
    • both of these methods require additional parameters since they're "privacy aware" now
    • whereas saveURI requires a nsILoadContext-object, saveURL simply needs a document-object referring to the content

    However, saveURL kept popping up a SaveAs-dialog (due to whatever reason); so I had to remove saveURL-calls completely and replace them with interalSave-calls (which by the way are "privacy aware" aswell now *g*).

v1.3.10 (06.01.2013)
  • the last release didn't quite solve the issues with the new API :( ... hope this one does ;)

v1.3.9 (04.01.2013)

  • bumped maxVersion to 4.0.*
  • additional "fallback-code" to deal with the missing status-bar

v1.3.2 (27.12.2010)
  • code-modifications to ensure FF4.0-compatibility
    (no more error-messages due to the missing statusbar in FF4.0; with FF4.0 the launch()-method of nsILocalFile caused trouble under Linux (and probably for other OSes aswell))
  • bumped maxVersion to 4.0b9pre

    (FF2.0 alpha3 just got released yesterday; it's "feature-frozen"... so it should be safe to already raise the maxVersion to 2.0 *g*)
