The "Save files to fhis folder" feature seems to only work for "Save link To
disk". 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.

i encounter this trouble when i want to save *.exe or *.pdf.

yangmiao@softhome.net: that sounds unlikely, considering that *.exe and *.pdf
are not images.

yangmiao@softhome.net: 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.
