[Bug] Missing Save As

Post by MysteryFCM » Sun Nov 20, 2011 4:49 am

If you're going to take over the download regardless of the settings I've got for the download manager, then at least provide the standard Save As option, alongside Save and Cancel.

I DO NOT want to have downloads auto-downloaded to a location chosen by anyone other than me, and each file is downloaded to a different location almost every time - very difficult to do if you're not going to give me the option to do that.

Ideally on both, but primarily on the latter of the two.

In AB downloader window, there already has the save as option, click browse to choose the location to save your file.
In firefox download window, you can set to show the save as here:

I don't use download managers though.

I want to be able to click a link, click save as, select the folder, and have it download - same as it did previously (11 series and earlier). I don't want to have to go through dialogs each time, just to select a folder.

Since you always use the firefox downloader, just set always ask me where to save files, then you click save file, it will pop up the save as window.

I never use the Firefox downloader ;) <-- ignore this, just realised what you meant (one of those days, lol).

I have just found the option Xaobing alluded to earlier though, wasn't aware of that.

Would still prefer that be the default though (as in, a Save As button on the download dialog itself), especially as the option isn't exactly easy to find from a user perspective (unless they know which engine is being used, and the fact they've got to go to the Mozilla options in the Tools menu, rather than the Avant options, and then click Options instead of Downloads (options should really be accessible from the Downloads dialog aswell)).
