User info Filter for torrents
Feb 19 2010, 6:01 am
I've created a filter where filename is *.torrent.

If I have a file called file.torrent it works.

But if I have a file called it does not work, the default save location is used instead.

Please help!

I tested your filter, and I didn't find any error.
it's working for me.

I checked the source, but didn't find any bug related to your problem.
Maybe another filter located on top of this one in your filter's list is triggered before.

Can you try to download it again, and when the "what firefox should do" dialog, please click on the "+ Add or edit a filter", and check which one is green.

Tell me which one is green.

If no filter is green, there is a problem either with your filters, or with ASF (I will reverif the source again then).

Could you give me a link to the problematic file ?
Did you checked regexp (I think you didn't, else the filter will not work at all)
Did you define a domain name in your filter ?

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.

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.

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.
