The "Save File to" extension does not work with e10s. It cannot download/save images or links in e10s window. It can save the current page though. But everything works in non-10s window.

Note: don't know why this extension is called "greatsaver" on arewee10syet but there is a malware called "GreatSaver" (see http://malwaretips.com/blogs/greatsaver-virus-removal/).

Thanks for testing, kenkon. I will update the extension name on arewee10syet.com.

Atte, are you the developer of the "Save File To" add-on? The add-on seems to be broken with multiprocess Firefox (e10s). If you have any questions about e10s support, just drop by the #e10s IRC channel on irc.mozilla.org or ask Jim Mathies on this bug. MDN also has a good introduction:

It's just Google returning this extension's page for "greatsaver site:addons.mozilla.org".
Yes, I'm Save File to's developer.

Project's issue to make it e10s campatible can be found here: https://bitbucket.org/atte-kemppila/save-file-to/issue/1
...and if someone could remove that "greatsaver" thing from this bug's title also, it would be appreciated.

How goes the work on this?
Flags: needinfo?(atte.kemppila)
In the current Nightly (46.0a1 2016-01-24), the extension is also broken in non-e10s windows.
Contextual menu entries and download save dialog component are empty.
Also the preferences dialog lists are empty and trying to add folders or separators has no effect.
Precisions : Ubuntu 14.04 x64
With Firefox 57 only WebExtensions are permitted and are, by default, e10s compatible.
