How can I change my download location using Firefox?

You're screwing your formerly loyal users. But I guarantee that you won't get the chance to do it to me again.

I'm switching to Chrome, which is the exact opposite of what you clowns were hoping for and I never intend to even try Firefox again. This the most disgraceful things I've ever seen any browser publisher do!

Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file

Thanks for one of the dumbest answers I've ever seen and thanks for nothing, Mozilla. Modified November 19, at 7: I'm not really sure what you expect.

Mozilla never guaranteed support for add-ons, maff was developed by a third-party, it is no longer supported. I understand that this requires work to transition, but Firefox needed to stop supporting legacy add-ons to continue moving forward.

Firefox should have integrated the option to save in maff format and not as a complement. Please, maff format in a great and should not die.

Mozilla should take this seriously. I agree, but Mozilla never did have a "save page in one file" feature.

Our opinions can't rewrite history. No good crying over spilled milk from a decade and a half ago.

As am "orphan" format Mozilla just never adopted it for the old Mozilla Suite or for Firefox. Standards compliant has always been the "theme" with Mozilla. I used MAFF myself for a number of years after that extension was developed and found that the saved MAFF files didn't display too well in any other browser.

MAFF files seemed to display "stray artifacts" or corruption too often in IE and Opera, which IMO left the user open to a situation like this; where files that can't be read when the application that created them was discontinued, became incompatible with the host application that it was installed within, or "died" due to lack of popularity. I switched to the UnMHT extension back in pr for that exact reason; my concerns over the MAFF file format being discontinued at some time in the future.
