That tab includes various options. Enter the path of the folder for the image to save to in the Custom Downloads folder text box. Then the image saves to the path entered in the text box.

You can also save the images into subfolders. Click the Create subfolders check box to set up subfolders. With %domain% entered in the Subfolder name pattern text box, the image will save in a subfolder with the site’s URL as the title. Alternatively, you could enter %title% in that text box as an alternative variable.

So this Firefox add-on gives you a handy shortcut for saving images. Now you can quickly save images to a specified folder by double-clicking them.
