'Take a Screenshot' feature doesn't remember last directory an image was downloaded to


(Firefox :: Screenshots, defect, P5)

67 Branch





(Reporter: dan.stevens2, Unassigned)


User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open any web page
  2. Click the page actions menu in the address bar and select 'Take a Screenshot'.
  3. Select an area to capture and click and 'Download'.
  4. Use the Windows Save As dialog to browser to another folder location and save the file.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3 using the same page, a different page on the same domain or different page on another domain (makes no difference to the results)

Actual results:

The Windows Save As dialog shows the default folder location (the one shown at the start of step 4).

Expected results:

The Windows Save As dialog shows the folder location that the image was saved to by the end of step 4 above

I would expect the above behaviour as Firefox normally remembers to which folder a file was downloaded on (I believe) a per-domain basis. The actual behaviour means that when I want to take multiple screenshots I have to browse to the same folder each time, resulting in waste repeat actions.
