I'm using Firefox 4. Whenever I'm prompted to save a file then the folder is where I saved something the previous time.

How could I achieve that when I'm downloading for example an .exe file then FF "knows" that I want to save it every time to Folder1. But all .zip files would go into Folder2 etc.

FF add-ons are acceptable.
