It would be cool if this feature also worked for "Save image as..." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find an image you wish to steal 2. Select "Save image as..." 3. Click on "Save" in "Save as" dialog box 4. Goto 1 Actual Results: Save as dialog box takes a long time to load, especially when the default is selected each time. Expected Results: Eliminate step 3. Firebird enhances my user experience daily. Keep up the good work.

Summary: Save Files to This Folder → "Save all files to this folder" doesn't apply to "Save Image as..."
i encounter this trouble when i want to save *.exe or *.pdf.
email@example.com: that sounds unlikely, considering that *.exe and *.pdf are not images.
firstname.lastname@example.org: since your problem isn't this bug, you should keep searching or file a new bug.
It's inconsistent that saved images are listed in the download manager, but aren't affected by the download options which explicitly refer to "all files".

"Save Link As..." was recently changed to have the same behavior as "Save Image As..." :( See bug 244961.
I really appreciate the fact that FF makes it easy to download images to a different folder than the default download folder. I'm frequently working on projects in vastly different places in my filesystem, and will want to save a dozen images in a row to one place, and then another dozen to another, neither of which is ever anywhere near the downloads folder I use as a depository for all installers and archives (for instance, the self-starting downloads from Sourceforge, which don't give an option to download to another location). Anyhow, if this change is made, can there be a preference to revert to the original behavior?
I would love this feature to return. Additionally, the Save Image As... (or Ctrl-S / Apple-S on an image) works sporadically since this change was first made. It always worked fine when the files were automaticall saved, but since this change I often get no dialog when trying to save an image, until I try a few times.
This change was in fact intentional. WONTFIX
