The Download Sort add-on for Firefox can automatically save your downloads to various folders based on rules you define.
Download Sort is a freebie that might take a bit of work to set up, but once you've got it rolling your downloads will sort themselves right into place.
Download Sort comes into play only when you right-click a file and choose "Save Link As..." or "Save Image As...". Download Sort won't change how Firefox acts when you left-click a file.
Each rule can be based on a particular file extension, such as .exe or .jpg, or a keyword found in the file's name. You can also choose to automatically sort into sub-folders based on a download's extension, date of download, or other information. For example, you can create a folder named "Firefox Downloads," and then have all your downloads save to sub-folders in that directory based on their extensions.
Additional options in Download Sort allow for deciding how to handle duplicate filenames, using regular expressions instead of keywords, and showing a message in the status bar when the add-on is doing its job.
