Summary: Save or open file download dialog should include "Save in default location" and "Save somewhere else" options

Comments: 
When i click a download link I'm presented with the choice to open that
file with a program on my computer, or save it to a location. After
that, depending on my configuration I either get a second dialog asking
where i want to save that file, or it goes to the default download
location. 

Most of the time i want to save to my default downloads location, but
sometimes I want to save the file somewhere else. Because of the rare
times i want another location, I have to go through two dialogs
(removing the second unnecessary dialog was the reason for adding the
default download feature).

A BETTER WAY TO WORK is this: Add a third option to the "open or save"
dialog. That way I can choose from the following:
1) Open the file.
2) Save the file to the default location
3) Open the location select dialog and allow me to choose where to
download this file to.

Most of the time i will choose 2. Some times I will choose 3. Life is great.

Multiple default "save as" or "open" locations
When I go to save something in Mozilla, it remembers where I just saved a file, which is great. If I am not in the desired directory, I can hit the home button or the up arrow or click on the desired directory to navigate to the desired directory. Or I can hit the down arrow next to the current working directory. I may be in /home/user/work/project1, and I would be given the choice of: /home/user/work/project1 /home/user/work/ /home/user/ /home/ / This is great, but I would love to append a couple of default directories permanently to this list, so that it might look l...

"save as" and "save link as" dialog flickers
On a new Mandriva 2007.1 system Firefox 2.0.0.3 and Seamonkey 1.1.1 both have a glitch in the "save as" (for an open page) and "save link as" (Firefox)/ "save link target as" (Seamonkey) for right click on a link dialogs. When the dialog comes up it's like there are two copies and it is flickering back and forth between them rapidly. Or possibly the dialog is resizing itself quickly. The "two" dialogs are vertically aligned but the right edge jumps back and forth. Identical copies of these two browsers did NOT do this on Mandriva 2006...

Why does opening of "Save" or "Save As" window take so long?
Name: Mike Cleven Email: mikecleven_at_gmail.com Product: Firefox Summary: Why does opening of "Save" or "Save As" window take so long? Comments: Unlike other programs, which bring up the whole contents of a directory quickly, Firefox (and Mozilla in its raw state) takes its time adding one directory item after another; such that you can wait quite a while to actually hit the "save" button, especially if you have to scroll to the right for any reason (e.g. looking for a subdirectory etc). Wondering why this is....I had a look at your bugs and p...

Linking Ability with "Save As" or "Save As PDF"
Name: STUART HASSEL Email: StuartHasselatgmaildotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Linking Ability with "Save As" or "Save As PDF" Comments: The reason I mostly use Safari is that it has the ability of linking anything that I save to my desktop. If I'm, say, doing a search using something like Google, I can click on various links at the moment but if I want to be able to do that later I can't so I copy my search word(s) or phrase onto Google using Safari and then just make the search page into a "document" and park it on my desktop.

How to prevent IE from adding "[1]" before char dot to the default file name of a "Save as" dialog?
First of all, I'm sorry if this is not the perfect place to ask this question, I just can't find a more proper one. Here is the thing, my website provides some kind of  file downloads, if the suggested file name has more than one dot chars('.'), IE will add a "[1]" before the first dot. For example, if my suggested file name is "aaa bbb.doc.zip", the default file name apperas in Save as dialog of IE will become "aaa bbb[1].doc.zip". Here is my code:  Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attach...

Catching "Save..." and "Save As..." from other applications (Office suite)
Hello, I would like to create an app with delphi (RadXE) that: - catch the "save..." and "save as..." from other applications, in particular MS-Office suites (but also other apps) - get some data from a dialog form before saving etc... - then going quiescent waiting for the next "save" or "save as..." event... I thought a way could be launching the external app by my delphi application getting handles to it, but I don't know how to catch events. Anybody can help me? (I am sure of yes! :) thanks in advance, Filippo __________________ ...
