Ok :)

That's not a bug from ASF.

ASF need this dialog "what should Firefox do" in order to work.

If you check "always do this for this file-type", of course ASF can't work because Firefox set the file-type association into it's option/Applications tab to always save in the same folder.
You must set back to "always ask" and never check "always do this", so ASF can be triggered from the save dialog.

I'm trying to find a way to make the "what should Firefox do" unnecessary, but I don't know how to do it yet.

For the "+ Add or edit a filter" in the "what firefox should do" dialog (what a crappy long name for a dialog, I use to name it "save dialog" instead), you must check "View option while saving" in the option tab.
If the option is shown, you can see the suggested folder before accepting the download, so you can see if the filters worked or not.
There are also the previous folder suggested.
You can also check "see paths list" to see a full list of paths from your filters for easy switching before accepting the download.
and the "+ Add or edit a filter" let you go to ASF preferences dialog to see which filter is triggered, add or edit filters for the current download.
I think I found the problem.

The bug starts happening when I check "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" for .torrent files.

If I set Firefox to display the what do to dialog again, all torrents are saves correctly to Y:. Checkeing the "Do this automatically" option again and only .torrent files are saved correctly, .something.torrent files are not anymore.
Some more info.

Firefox 3.6 English
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
ASF 1.0.1

I've created only 1 filter. Content:
Filters Domain
= Regexp.
File name
= Regexp.
Local folder
If the file doesn't match any filter, save to:
The last folder
This folder:
Use the last folder if the file is from the same domain


Downloading file.torrent sets the dialog to Y:\
Downloading file.avi.torrent sets the dialog to R:\

As to the test you suggested I should perform. I cannot do it, since "+ Add or edit a filter" does not appear in the What do to dialog.
