comment How can I avoid Firefox's “you have chosen to open” dialog when I try to download a file?
This works great—thanks! I like that it lets me set different folders based on the file type.

@Chealion Installing Download StatusBar did not help. It still brings up the same dialog when downloading a .plist file.

I'll give Download StatusBar a try shortly. Option-clicking bypasses the dialog, however it sometimes it causes incorrect filenames. For example, everything from FogBugz will be called default.asp. And sometimes if there's a redirect it just downloads a stub file.

For me (at least with .plist and .rar files) the dialog doesn't look like that. There is no option to "Do this automatically..." It simply offers Cancel and Save File. So I don't see a way of adding new types, other than perhaps by editing mimeTypes.rdf.
